Group Deal on Tints: Chicago Area

Hey Guys,

I know a lot of you are looking to get tints done, so I wanted to see how many of you guys were interested in getting them done. If you guys have any suggestions let me know and I will call around and get a great deal for all of us.

I have contacted umbra and hopefully they can give us a great deal, will contact a few today and tomorrow as well

do they carry ceramic lifetime tint? How will this work, with the wait and all; usually takes a few hours before we can pick up car

edit: nvm saw other thread with pinnacle

as much as i think umbra's awesome, i have to go back there for the second time to get my drivers side redone. the coupes are really tricky though because of how the windows automatically open a bit when opening the door, it leaves a higher chance something will get caught in the edges and start to peel.

but +1 on lifetime warranty (as long as their in business). only thing is that i live uber far, and their quite busy all the time.

yeah.. I tinted mine at a local shop. They finish it nicely but just the driver side tint keep getting mess up because the automatic window roll up. yeah start peeling from the bottom left ..usually they will have problems with rimless window

not interested anymore, unfortunately it looks like Chicago is still enforcing the tint law because there is a city ordinance that overrides the state law - what a joke...

I went to a hearing for a $250 tint ticket that I got when my car was parked on Clark St in Chicago. I live in the burbs so I got the ticket dropped. This was about a month ago.
