Good tint shops in Northern Jersey?

Any recommendations around the Morris/Essex border area? I'm thinking of going for 35% tint on my X5 (long story, got it with clear back windows a while ago). If I get a good tint, the 335i is next when it arrives in a few weeks.

Auto Image in Edison did a sick job with my Sti. They're on route 1..not exactly north but around the central area.
I think everything came out to $350 for 19% 3M all the way round.

The Art of Tint! Tom does and EXCELLENT job and if you go to his shop in Brooklyn on Saturday's it's only $200 as opposed to $250 on weekdays at his shop in the city.
