Just did mine at LA Tint in Sterling, VA off of Route 28, 502 Shaw Road. The Manager, Geoff, was great, the work is awesome. I'm very happy. If only VA would allow for a bit darker!!

Two thumbs up!!

I did my previous car at HP Racing up in Glen Burnie, will probably go with them once my camaro arrives. 9 years later and the tint still looks like it did on day 1.

For those who got it done at LATint what variation did you go with. I see on their site there are 4 variations of shade you can get. I want to get mine tinted as soon as the snow goes away!!

Got mine done at Custom Wheels Boutique in Fredericksburg VA. $200 including the strip across the top of the windshield on the front. I chose to go 50% all the way around to keep it uniform across the whole car. Not looking to go too dark, and I'm really happy with the results. The guy to talk to is "Tuna". He's done some work for me on my truck and everything he does is outstanding. Really cool shop too!

I did the pinnacle series from LA Tint. Not only does it look cool, but it reduces heat in a big way. They have a heat lamp with different tints. Have them show you. Also, the ceramic does not interfere with the antenna. I got mine with 35 all around. Go to DMV and get the medical waiver form if you want them darker than 50 without getting a ticket. Have the eye doctor fill it out and fax it in. They will update your registration in DMV to allow 35 tint.

Looks like they did an awesome job. When the snow melts away I will take mine in for tint. I am going to check into the medical waiver as well. Thanks!!

Tint

Any other tint recommendations in the Fairfax/Springfield VA area...A two-door car should not be any more than $200.

You guys need to post all of your prices. So far $200 is the only price to go by. Thanks for all the info folks.

I did the same thing as Edog, it was $300 at LATint. The Pinnacle is their higher end tint and as Edog said, it helps cut out a lot of the heat. With black interior and IBM exterior it was a must. You can get a tint job for $200 from them, it will just be a lower level tint.

Mine was $200 even. The product was LLumar ATC, smoke color. I'm really happy with it. It was a Valentines Day gift my wife and I did for each other. I'm a lucky guy. She's as crazy about the car as I am.

I was their first in the Woodbridge shop, so my price was not as high as quoted by Matt. I can tell you there is a big difference between grades, and it was worth the money. I believe I paid 260.00 back in May 2009.

I initially went to Action tint shop by Spotsy mall in Fredericksburg. They quoted 185. for their best, but it was not as good, and it did nothing for the heat.

Yeah, $200 is a good price for something that's a good tint without any special colors or without them doing some tint designs.

Anyone gone to the LA Tint in Woodbridge? Sterling is a little far for me.
