Tint Shop Around DC

Looking for a tint shop around the DMV area. I would like to get ceramic tint done at probably 30%? Any suggestions on a shop, brand of tint, and % to get done?

I used LA Tint in Manassas. They also have a location in Sterling (which is their better shop).

Raja @ speed&tech motoring also does tints.

I used Pinnacle F1, they are essentially fade-proof and doesn't interfere with electronics.

Just bear in mind, at LA Tint, they are happy to install non-conforming tints, but it's cash only, no-receipt, and no warranty.

good tint shop is on my list of things to do once I get the car.
Raja gets one more vote.

I wonder if they do Ceramic Tint and can do the front as well with a doctor's note.

Raja does Ceramic tint, I have it done on my car. I'm sure he'll accommodate your needs.

I got mine done at Contour Tinting in Chantilly, VA. It is laser cut, not too expensive, and looks great. I will be back.

Thanks guys. I already got the tint done at Driven Dynamics in Rockville. I had them put SunTec CXP on (35% on the sides and 80% on the windshield). They did an awesome job and pricing was pretty good.

That should not be an issue Sir.
Please let me know if you have any other question that I can answer.

Thanks!

Highly recommended ~!!

I was not happy with my "Winners" experience in Maryland on a car in the past.

I have been happy with LA Tint in Sterling. I've gotten lots of cars done by them. Quality work every time, but pricey.

I've heard nothing but good things about Raja's work.

Might be a bit far from DC - but I received Formula One Pinnacle 40% at 'Absolute Perfection' in Sykesville, MD (aptinting.com) and Mark did an excellent job.

I'm quite pleased with the result - and was initially hesitant to go through with tinting because of a bad experience on a 335i I had years ago, but am glad I made the decision to go through with it.

Needless to say, this is the best tint install I've had. I recommend this shop and Mark.

Good luck

+1 for Driven Dynamics. I referred to this thread to find a good tint shop and decided on DD. Gilbert was very responsive and answered all my questions (unlike other vendors in the area and on this forum). I got CXP nano 80% on the windshield, 18% on the sides, and 45% on the rear windshield. Came out perfect.

Been thinking about going darker. Would love to see what 30 or 15 looks like on our cars. Anybody got pics and where it was done?
