Default alright guys, any nice tint shop you guys recommend?

Ok I've been wanting to get tints for my wagon sicne day one but I never got a chance to shop around for prices. And for some reason, I never thought of asking fellow tri-staters where they recommend.

So any member know of a nice shop that does a good job tinting? Nothing to pricey and in NNJ.

I plan on having the rear doors and window 15 and a strip on the windsheild. If that helps anyone about estimates.

Thanks guys.

Shoot an email to Lee Berbs and call it a day. He just did my 2011 Legacy and did a great job. 35% all the way around and full clear bra on the entire front end, door handle cups, rear bumper lip, and custom cut mud splat areas. Awesome work.

Auto Image in Somerville is where we have gone for years. There is no one near Flemington. He is fast and reasonably priced with a lifetime guarantee, which he honors no questions asked.

I went to Auto Image with my old WRX. Quick, cheap, good job.

But for my STi I went to Lee. Took longer(cause he is meticulous, and we were BSing about old jobs), cheap(even thou he did a few more things when i asked), GREAT job(his filed edges make the tint look like a factory job. The tint has a lifetime guarantee. And He is meticulous)!

+1 for Lee. He did my FXT. It was a great experience, great work, good conversations and AZP is 50 feet away, so it was easy commute for my next stop of the day.

bump! I'm still searching around. I got a bunch of quotes but I'm still looking for a nice place. right now Lee Berbs is the guy I can go to as far as pricing. any other place that can give competitive pricing without losing quality?

the tint shop do a good job
as long as you go to a tint only place, you are most likely getting top notch work. i would be more interested in what brand of film they use. madico, llumar, etc...

Hey Guys,

It looks like Lee is a consideration, but he's an hour and a half away from me. Anyone have any experiences with tint shops closer to the Lehigh Valley?
