Best place for tinting in Boston?

Guys i've had some bad experiences with different tinters and have decided to go with a premium film. I've heard many good things about formulaOne Pinnacle tint but can't find any dealers around...any suggestions for me?

Well the last job I did with him was last year on my GS and that was multi-piece, but it was still amazing. He says he's the best in the business and he does it for dealers too! He might have changed the multi-piece to one piece but I don't know. I could find out if there is enough interest. A buddy of mine got his VW Jetta done flawlessly so did a friend with an IS350!

I had 3M on the Benz.

If they had it, I would've used V-Kool or Huperoptik - those actually do something in summer.

Got any pics? Brian said that he is not 100% confident about how it would turn out with the HO tints. That's why I still haven't tinted my windows yet. Do you mind if I come by and check out the tints? Thanks!

The rear window is still a little sketchy the dot matrix screws everything up. Going to see them tomorrow morning to see what can be done.

Hmm..... he also told me that the HO tints are not stick to the windows very well. I might go Llumar this time just to be on safe side.

I've gotten all my previous rides done at Superior. They did a great job. You gotta make sure the owner does the work, and not one of his helpers.
