When I had my Gti, I had Chicago Auto pros do it... Fantastic work, stand up guys.. Bit pricier than others but I'd go back in a heart beat.

That’s kinda a far drive for me. I’m looking for a place in the south burbs or NWI.

Tint To U has done 3 of my cars. All 3 turned out fine. No bubbles, dust, or any issues. Nice shop and good people to work with.

Cool. Like how long do you guys think it would take for tint to u to tint my Charger windows?

I definitely wouldn’t rush them either.

I called and made an appointment for my Hellcat Challenger last year and was there when they opened and waited for my car. I think I was there about 3 hours total.

Not sure where you are located, but Auto Image in Barrington is awesome. I have had my last 6 vehicles done there. Jeff stands by his product and work and is priced well.

If you're up in the Crystal Lake area, I had Carl Darling Window Tinting do my Challenger, Corvette, and both Raptors. Awesome job on all of them.

They did the same for my SS. They did the Mustang too. No issues on either and they did a great job of getting the Mustang windows all the way up to the edge. No issues around dot matrix, no bubbling, etc... And Jeff seems like a really cool guy, so there's that too. And it was reasonably priced as well IIRC.

+1 for Tint to U

I recent used this company for my wife's Acura. They are based out of Downers Grove.

https://www.facebook.com/Tintzplus

The owner Jimmy does great work and is probably the best tint job I've had on my cars over the years.

I've used Greg for my last 3 vehicles also. Great work.

HOWEVER, it appears he sold the shop to another company doing tint work at that address. Google shows it as "Permanently Closed".

Another business (Premier Tint Pros) is doing tinting at that same address. I am considering using them for my GTI, as it looks like I can still get it done for about $200 for the whole car. Yelp reviews are positive so far.

Thanks for all the information guys.

I was thinking of getting a tinted license plate cover too. Do any of you guys have those? I see them on Amazon.

Iíll probably take my car to Kustom Tints in Valpo. And itís a lot closer to where I live. I heard he does really good work.

He also does ceramic coating. Iíd have to take a look at the cars heís done for that first before he does mine.

The tints on this car are really dark. Holy Shit!! LOL.
