Default Looking for a good window tinter!

Well, the tint that come on my TBSS is crap and is bubbling and turning blue.... This bothers the crap out of me. I'm looking for a reputable tinter. I used to use Z-tech in Naperville but I guess customer service has gone out the window over the last couple years. I'd like to get this done ASAP. please point me in the right direction.

ya PAF wanted $480. I talked to Mr. A and got recommended to Abes Auto Design. He was much cheaper to say the least. You can judge the work tomorrow. I'm happy with it!
edit: I forgot to add... Abe uses 3m tint so its not cheap. I'm thinking about getting the windshield done like 50% or 75%

Dude, remove the tint yourself... I did it on my old car and it's easy as shit. Be very careful, use a razor, cut the tint film enough so you can peel it off.

I got my shit done at Ziebart for $275 when I had mine done. Highest grade of tint, looked fucking awesome. They even re-tinted my window for 25 bucks after it was broken into. (lifetime warrenty but doesn't cover theft, they could have charged me the whole price to re-tint) Can't beat that.

Ziebart is now z-tech. Like I mentioned above, they have bad reviews now and a friend of mine had issues with them doing warranty work. I was happy with the work they did 3 years ago but all I have to hear is one bad review and I move on to the next guy.
