Default Can any 1 recommend cheap & good tint job?

Hey guys, I've seen alot of WRX's with nice tint jobs and I was wondering if any of you guys and gals can recommend me where to go. I need a tint job but dont want to spend too much money cause I've just recently perchased a new home. I need someone to do a good job and use good material. I live in the North area(Norhtglen/Thorton). Any recommendations?
Thanks.

There is a really good place on the south east side of 88th and Wadsworth between Checkers and Peir 1. I can not remember what the name of it is, Sunrise or somehting like that but they do a really good job. I got mine done all four windows and back with 15% for under $200. I'll try to find their number for you.

15%? so they'll go under the limit? I've been looking for someone who could do that for me without having to go to NM or AZ please find that number if you're sure that they will tint my car with 15% transmitance!

Go to Tint Crafters at 4490 S Wadsworth in Lakewood (behind the Car Wash). They did my windows (15%) for under $200. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for tints. Their phone # is: 303.973.1831.

Hey jprutch> do I need to do anything (tip, secret handshake) to get them to put 15% on my car, or will they just do it if i ask them to?

no secret handshake necessary - they are very open about it. They have samples in their office if you have time to go by, but you may want to call first and make sure someone is there.

Thanks for the advice. I called tint krafters today and the did my and my girlfriends rides. Only $189 for my wrx. I got 15% and it looks sweet!!! I would recommend this shop. I might go back and have the windshield done with 30% Thought I keep that legal. Word of advice stay away from the limo tint, thats a bit much.

I drove by Tint Crafters last night - they are open M-F (8-5), Sat (8-2), and closed on Sun. in case anyone is interested. I'd also agree about the limo tint, it's a little too dark fort safe driving at night.

what pecentage was their limo tint? I called last night and they said that they'll only do 30 something %. I had 28% on my last car and I wanted something a little darker this time but not so that its hard to see at night. *** do I have to? I'll probably go there at some point and ask them in person. I donno maybe they don't like saying that they'll do darker than the limit on the phone.

I believe the limo tint is 5 or 10%. You might want to drive by there and talk to them in-person. I know for a fact they do 15% and lower - they may not want to say it over the phone for some reason. They are located behind the Oasis Car Wash off of Wadsworth. Phone is: 303.973.1831.

It is 5%. However, it is so dark I do not know how you would see out of it at night. They did do 15% for me all the way around and they did admit that to me over the phone before I went down there.

How does everyone like their 15%? Is it to dark to see out of when you're pushin' it, or is it just fine?

The only time I think it is a little too dark is when I am trying to back up in a tight space at night. Other than that, no complaints about it at all.
