Any one have a recommendation for a dealer (DFW area) who can install window tints? I know I don't have a civic but I have a WRX, don't want some newbie messing up the stick or the car. Tint King in Frisco quoted $125 for front and about $350 for whole car. I don't know why it would cost more than $200 to do the rear windows.

First, what kind of tint are you getting? The quoted prices you're listing are probably a low quality dyed film, which isn't worth doing. Dyed film is basically just for looks; it's not going to make your car much cooler and certainly isn't going to protect your interior.

For my CTR, I had XPEL install their PRIME XR tint because it was their cheapest option with ceramic. Ceramic is how you actually get heat and UV rejection, and a 50% ceramic is going to be more effective than even something like a 10% dyed film.

90% on the windshield, 35% on the sides and back installed was $700 and I can leave my car in direct sun and get in and it feels like it was under the shade.

This is where i went in 2000 (GS-R) and 2018 (si). They did my si 4dr for 180 that is the 1 of 3 choices. I got the darkest in back in legal up front. They have 3 stages of tint with lifetime warranty. They do great work.
My EVO is with them right now. Can't wait to see how cool it will make my car.

How close to Oak Cliff are you? I don't know of a spot off hand, but there are a handful of small shops that do it off Davis. I got my entire Sentra tinted (dark as possible) for $100 even. 4.5 years later, still no bubbles or tears. That shop was recently wrapped in police tape, but someone else has moved in there (Davis and Westmoreland).

J's Tint off Carrol and Columbia, not far from I-30 in East Dallas does good work.
