I was but they were too busy and were rather sounded 'cocky' to me.
I went to LA tint in Manassas and they did a great job. Gave my friends discounts too.

Woah... If you guys are going to LA tint count me in! lets see if we can get group discount. I have been wanting mine tinted for a while. I am assuming everyone is thinking Pinnacle F1... i'm thinking 30%

Ill go to either, but really how cocky can they be if not 1 but two fresh M3s roll up? ... and for the record cocky or not if they do a good job and stand behind it I'm okay with that

I am sticking with no tint. Car only sees the light of day 2-3 times a week anyway. I prefer to be seen at that time.

humm...during the week may be tough for me since I work in Columbia. Anyone know how long it takes...and wtf is up with the no discount for groups...I almost feel like it would be better if one of us goes and the 'refers' the others...so they can get discounts.

Over off exit Gorman rd exit off rt 29... i think its like exit 13 but not sure.

I am down to go up there some time next week lets pick a time and go...I'll take off work, ive been wanting to go for a while...and fellow unnamed (lilfingers) posters are starting to take jabs at me for not getting it done yet :-)

either alex. or sterling works for me both are equal distance from my house.
