Contact Vs motorsports, they have a guy who comes in and tints while you wait. He is very anal and did my old 335i and my m3 both came out great, and pricing isn't bad as well

VS works. Most Chicago guys see Nino at Umbra Tinting in Schaumburg. Seriously 90% of the members on here use him - at least on the E90post side.

i have been out of the loop, but did they end up changing the laws in IL regarding tints? is there a certain percentage were allowed to have?

I just had Nino do my tints today as well. Everything posted about Nino/Umbra are spot on. So far, it looks great and i'm very pleased. Thanks for the advice everybody!
