what's up guys,

anyone know/recommend a good place for window tinting in Chicago or surrounding suburbs?

if you got tints from the place you're recommending please include prices and pics if you can. Thanks to all who reply!

PM me for info. I have a guy in Logan Square that did mine & my sis's car for $120 each last year. Sorry, my hand was a little shaky on my first shot.
The last pic was from earlier this summer.
35% up the sides and 20% on rear.

UPDATE: He charges $140 now, which is still a good deal.

nice aliti!

damn, $120? not bad.

i'm thinking about getting 30-35% tints. do you like the 35% you've got or do you wish you went a little darker? also, do you like the overall quality of the tints?

anyway, clean ride and thanks for pics/reply

No, i'm VERY happy with the 35%. It has a nice smoke color during the day and it looks dark as hell when it's dark or cloudy. Plus, the cops don't bother you as much with the 35% b/c they can see in the car easier.
Quality is top notch. I've had it for 13 months now, & it still looks great.

shaded days, lake bluff. Little pricey, but awesome work. Use LLumar ATR, lifetime warranty against fade. $275

That's who i used for my 2 Maximas before I found this guy in the city. Shaded Days did a great job as well, but it's too expensive.

Was it still $120?

Did you have to drop off the car or were you able to wait?

yup, got it for $120

you can wait there if you want. i wouldn't recommend waiting though. the tinting took 2 hrs. i went with my boy, and we were pretty bored 'cause there's really nothing in the area besides a philly's best. Take an extra car with you..lol
