Superior Window tinting Starts with 3M automotive vehicle Window Tint
Quality Auto Trim is Spokane’s premiere window tinting shop. Quality products and careful attention to detail are essential to achieving the most effective results in window tinting. That is why we are proud that our window tinting experts use 3M automotive vehicle Window Tint. 3M was the first to patent window tint over fifty years ago and they have been an industry leader ever since. 3M has a variety of automotive vehicle window films. Here at Quality auto Trim we supply what we consider the three top of the line selections. We don’t even carry a low end film!

We only use the Best
FX Premium - Window Tinting
We don’t stock a low-end film. 3M FX Premium is the most popular film we carry. It cuts glare and rejects up to 45% of the sun’s radiant heat.
This is our go to auto window film. If an auto dealer sends us a car for a window tint (which many do), this is the film we typically will use. It has a nice black smoke appearance, no metal in it, lifetime warranty (labor and material), and is at a very competitive price level as well. VIEW SPECS
Color Stable - Window Tinting
3M Color Stable window tint has a unique appearance that some say resembles factory tint. Color Stable is also guaranteed by 3M never to fade or turn purple.
This window film is a step up and comes with a Color Stable warranty, has no metal, and some people prefer the softer smoke appearance of this film. This film rejects up to 57% of the Total Solar Energy, 77% IR rejection, and great Glare and UV protection. It has a beautiful appearance and also has a lifetime warranty. VIEW SPECS
Crystalline Series - Window Tinting
3M Crystalline window tint is our highest performing film. It’s multi-layered structure allows more light in while blocking more heat than four layers of limo tint!
Rather than using darkness (which can be illegal on passenger cars), or metal to reflect heat, Crystalline blocks heat with proprietary technology. 3M Crystalline has over 240 layers and yet is the thickness of a Post it Note. These layers block the Infra Red (IR) part of the spectrum that causes the heat you feel.

What is the Warranty on the window tint job?
All of our 3M Auto Window Films have a warranty that is good for the lifetime of the original owner. That is for labor and material. Once again since 3M has been in business for over 100 years and Quality Auto Trim has been in business in Spokane since 1980. You can feel secure that your window film will be backed up as long as you own your car.
How dark can you tint your vehicle in Washington state?
The law in Washington changed around 2011 to where it became what we refer to as a Net Law. That means that the total darkness between the AS2 factory glass (you will see a faint etch mark on your glass that says AS2) and the film we install cannot be below 24% VLT (Visible Light Transmission) on your passenger car or on the front doors of your multi-purpose vehicle. On a multi-purpose vehicle like an SUV or a Pickup you can do anything you want behind the front doors.
We can show you samples of the different films and what your vehicle will look like when it is done. It looks obviously tinted when we are done.
How long will you need my vehicle for tinting?
If we are tinting a complete car or SUV, or Pickup we like to have the vehicle for the better part of the day. If that is hard for you and you let us know, we can get it done in 2-2.5 hours if that is what you need. We do have a nice waiting area with Wifi, TV, magazines, free coffee, pop, water, and popcorn. We also have some toys and drawing materials for kids if you need to bring them along. All that while sitting next to our beautiful waterfall just outside the window.
Why do you use 3M?
3M had the first patent on window film in 1966 and has been the industry leader ever since. From Scotch Tape to Post-It Notes, the innovation that 3M has brought to their products for over 100 years is unmatched. As an Authorized Dealer of 3M Automotive Window Tint, we are proud to bring that innovation to you. There is no other company that stands behind the quality and performance of their products more than 3M.
