Anyone in DC-MD-VA getting windows tinted?

If anyone has recommendations please let me know. I'm looking for professional installation, the highest quality materials and someone that knows Virginia law on this subject. I've checked around but nothing beats word-of-mouth.

Thanks

Paul

We do in house tinting and use the best tint available. We dont make nearly as much money as we could but we just do it as a service to our customers.

LATint.com is bar none the best...in my opinion. I've seen a lot of places do tinting in NoVA but LATint has yet to be beat.

I'm getting all my windows done including the windshield 20% and I've got a note from my eye doctor saying that I need the tint due to sensitivity of the sunlight so I'll be able to get away with it if I get pulled over!

Thanks. I'll check them out. I think they have multiple shops in the area too.

Kind of a "buy a super charger get a free tint job" sort of thing?

Seriously, not sure I want to trek to Delaware.

Thanks

All I did was tell my eye doctor that I wanted to get my windows tinted darker than the legal limit and he assumed it was from my eyes being sensitive, I wasn't going to correct him

Here's all laws for window
tint...http://www.iwfa.com/iwfa/Consumer_In...statelaws.html

Some states have high fines for violations...Don't get caught in D.C.
1st offense-$50 and can be sent directly to inspection station.
2nd offense-$1000
3rd offense-$5000 and/or civil forfeiture of your vehicle
-oh and the kicker is...if your under 20% with any state tags, an Officer has the choice of impounding your vehicle on the spot!

I went and got the medical waiver for tint at the VA DMV, took it to my eye dr. He filled it out, then I took it back to DMV.

In VA, the waiver allows you to go down to 35% instead of 50% on the front side windows. I think it looks awesome. I went to LA. Tint and they tinted for me. I am waiting for the official form from DMV for LA. Tint to give me a receipt.

Thanks to RallyYellow, and Camaro68 for joining in this pic today. I had a great time at the Stafford Classics car show.

It is not about your vision. Mine is 20/20. It is the brightness effecting your eyes. Squinting, eye aches, etc...

I see this is a common practice. I would have done this a long time ago if I knew I could have. I never knew.

Nice!! Not to jack my own thread but did you forgo the front license plate?

Could you share details on the LA Tint Experience? How much? How long? Which shop? Window indexing issues? Stuff like that.

If I'm really lucky I'll have mine next week. Most likely week after next though.

Thanks

Paul

Sorry for the 3 posts..

I too would like to know. Isn't it illegal to not have a front license plate in VA?
