Default Tints

Did 30% on sides and 20% in the rear. Went to Mike at The Tint Works in Libertyville. Here are the before and after shots.

Has anyone had any experience with Midwest Tint & Vinyl Specialists in St Charles?

Would you recommend it over Cesar, I heard they use carbon tints, not sure if Cesar uses carbon or ceramic.

Bumping an old thread.
It's a drive for myself but I've had all my vehicles tinted by him and the company he represents out in Glenview (not sure about the Glen Ellyn location)

Please ask for Oscar at Chicago Auto Pros, if you speak to him, Greg, Jason or Caleb - please tell them Jeff with the s2000 and/or black LS460 sent you.

They carry some of the best detail, tint, and overall car care products around. I've gone to them for tint (Llumar, Forumula/Pinnacle, 3M, etc etc.), XPEL ultimate, full paint correction, ceramic coating (modesta, cquartz) etc. and have always been exceeded in my beyond-OCD expectations.

I hope this helps.

Caesar $100, 20%, end of story. (Normal price is around $150) this was my 5th car he's done.

If you're paying anything over $150 to tint every window on your car, including the front windshield, you're are getting hosed.

Which film is Caesar using? Does he offer both regular and ceramic tints? Curious if he does any mobile work and can come out and do an on-site install! Sounds like he does amazing work for a great price.

I would say doubtful on the mobile install, I've asked myself in the past.

Great prices and I've never had any issues with the 7 cars he has tinted for me. I've hooked him up with some larger high end dealer groups and they are very happy with his services.

On the film, I can't recall? I would ask Matt or just call Cesar and ask. He will be honest with you.

Can anyone recommend a mobile tint guy in or around Palatine?

I tried Caesar but he said it's too far of a travel for him.

Must be reliable and professional, have a great reputation, and offer high quality name brand film (both standard and ceramic).
