Tint shop recommendation in Chicago suburb

Can someone from the Chicagoland region recommend a quality window tint shop in the northwest suburbs? I've been hearing great things about Huper Optik tints, but I couldn't find any installers in the area. Thanks in advance!

i asked the same thing a while ago also. i was quoted $450 from precision tinting in orland park(probably 45-50 miles from your area) and i thought that was a bit pricey considering i heard people paying around 250-300 down in florida.

i know one of the members from this board had gotten his car tinted at car boutique in schaumburg for $325. the shop used madico tint.

i just recently had my car tinted in woodridge. it is probably a 20-25 minute drive for you. the price for the tint for 5 windows was $260. they also use madico tint. the tint doesn not interfere with sat radio/navi/cell phone. i chose this shop due to the recommendation of a fellow e90post member and also due to the fact this shop also does the tinting for elmhurst bmw.

here is the info for the woodridge location:

Brad Wagner
Sunset Glass Tinting
6817 Hobson Valley Dr. Unit 111
Woodridge, IL 60517
630-971-1700

also here is the thread i had made a while ago about tinting.

I think $40 a window
