Default HR: What shop uses what brand tint?

I'm looking to get my car tinted this week but I'm being real picky about what kind of tint is going on my windows. I've heard good things about LLumar, Solar Gard, and Huper Optik so thats all that I want on my windows. I called TNT tinting and they had neither of those so does anybody know for sure what other shops use those tint brands?

Winners Window Tint around the DC area uses 3M window films which are pretty highly regarded. They offer a number of different shades and could probably order a custom film if that’s what you’re looking for.

Bump for Winners

+ for Winners Tint; they've tinted customers' and personal cars for us and the work has always been good.

Both of my subarus, 00 & 07, have been done by Atlantic Shoreline. They carry 3M, Llumar, and Madico.

4 digit member number from HR coming out of the woodwork!

FWIW I've had TNT's tint on my widows for like 5 years now. Not one bubble have I seen or signs that the tint is changing colors, getting lighter, etc. Did the install in like 45 minutes including the one piece back window that has some PITA cutouts for the antenna and heater.

I took mine to Ba Custom Auto here in Newport News they carry LLumar and is really really good.
It is located at Denbigh, between Warwick BLvd and Jefferson Ave.

Can't help you with shops that use those particular tint brands but I can vouch for TNT. I know alot of people in the area have taken their cars to them and doesn't seem to be too many complaints. I just got mine done a few weeks ago. Was in and out in less than an hour, lifetime warranty and they did a great job.
