I had my tail lights smoked by them and my windows tinted. I do NOT like there tint job. It seems real blurry when looking out the window and the tint is chipping. They claim it was from my seatbelt "flying" up and hitting the window. They want me to pay to replace it but i am just going somewhere else. As for car audio installs i dunno. But if you go inside there is a pretty bad ass acura integra that they said they customized

that place is awful. i sent a range rover over there to have a dvd/navigation/camera installed, that they do all over the country, and they f-d it all up when it is supposed to be a plug in thing. So they didn't do anything at all and they are still charging $500. DO NOT GO THERE EVER!!!

Wow, its amazing how people can say things and hide behind avatars. If you have such a problem with the shop maybe you should take it up with them. From what I hear their reputation is top notch. For those of you asking about how the shop is, why not stop by and talk to them yourself? See some of the shops work. Why are you going to trust someone on a website that you have never met? You don't have to trust me either, but visiting the shop seems like the most logical answer when it comes to finding out about the place. But if you do feel like trusting a forum, I say go to these guys. I think they do incredible work. Why else would JL Audio have asked them to build a car for them at last years NOPI show.

$250 for H.I.D.s installed? I'm guessing that you were providing the lights? Most of the times I see H.I.D.s installed for about $650 and up (thats cost of H.I.D.s, materials and installation.) All I have to say is that cheap work isn't good, and good work isn't cheap.

Did you get the piece installed and working anywhere else? What brand was it? If you have a rear seat entertainment package it probably won't work anyway. Very common on that car.

No, but the first search I did was for Area-41 and this thread came up leading me to post in this one first.
well, you obviously know the shop then. so, instead of flaming on everyone else, why not just post your opinion? they had bad experiences with them, big whoop. if you have had good experiences with them, then say so. but from the sounds of it, you just know the shop and want to assume they are good.

Well you never know what it could have been. But I guess they blame it was all me, but whatever it was enough to not make me go back again. I am not hating on there installs I know that they are GOOD but IMO way overpriced 250 for an HID installed is ridiculous. HID are what like connecting 3 wires together? I had all my equipment. Also they wanted 550 for a system install. Once again had ALL my stuff just wanted an install. No custom just a basic 4 channel amp install. So that would have been 800 for all. I just went for it myself. It may not be no pro install, but it saved me 800 bucks which is alot

I was stating my opinion. And don't assume that I "know the shop" and I am assuming they are good. I know the work they do is incredible. The 2 10" Memphis M3s, Memphis MCD1000 amp, Kenwood in dash double DIN, H.I.D.s, Underbody/Interior Lighting and custom interior were all done and installed at that shop. The owners, installers and salesmen are some of the best guys I have ever met. Don't let the tattoos and gauged ears of these guys fool you, they know what they are doing, better than most shops I have ever been in.

I do like seth though hes SUPER cool and nelson is cool to dont know the other guys to well

I agree they are a good shop and I know they will do installs well. I mean they are overpriced but I am not just singling them out. ALL shops overprice Soundsensations, megamaxx, they all do in my opinion, but hey thats there way of making money and some people are willing to pay that. I just could never do it. But seriously HID's i had EVERYTHING. So basically it was gonna be 250 bucks for about 25-30 min of labor? hell no

I do like seth though hes SUPER cool and nice also nelson is cool to dont know the other guys to well though

if the tint was not chipped by the install then the only person to blame for any scratches or nicks is the owner. And no matter what the product is replacement of any user damaged product is not going to be free wherever you go.

This post got way out of hand!!

However after reading it, only one person that posted had work done to his car.

The best install is one that you do yourself. (maybe not the first time though. But you will have a great since of pride and accomplishment)

They moved up about a quarter mile North at the next light. They moved into a bigger shop due to more business and expanded to include Home Theater and Automation.
