Default Tint shops in Illinois (60192) anyone?

Anyone know any good places to tint a Obsidian 08 IS250 w/ Tan Interior all 5 windows...

Looking to spend 150-200 w/ lifetime warranty!

Northwest suburbs (Streamwood/Schaumburg/Elgin)

Thinking of doing

Option A) 35% all around (still think it's a little too light but police will like it)

Option B) 35% Front 2, and 20% Back 3

Option C) 30% all around if the shop offers it

Option D) 25% all around if the shop offers

Honestly, just do 20% all around. I started with 35% since I didn't want to get tint tickets but they were too light. So I got 20% for years now and never got a ticket. I still think it's too light and might tint my windshield.

Look at the top of this forum for "Sticky: Chicago Tint Shop Thread", there is a lot of good information in there.

Sick car!!!! Haha!! Chinatown is my favorite!!

Wish there would be a car meet around the woodfield area :/ because my HIDs just came in, along with yellow fogs, trunk spoiler, mesh grill, and im getting tints (still picking a place)...

wish i could afford rims and some coils but maybe in the future!

I had my '08 GS350 done about 5 months ago. I found him through the Sticky thread. His name is Ceasar. He charged me $170 total. That included all windows plus a 6 inch strip across the top of the front windshield. His contact info is below.

Another vote for Caesar. He did a fantastic job on my 335d, I'll be taking all my future cars to him.
