Default Shops in Woodbridge, VA?

So new to the area, I was wondering if there are any shops that you guys have experience with. My WRX is still new so it has all the warranties and service stuff on it so I was wondering who you guys would recommend to go through?

Also looking for a place to do tail light and window tinting.

Thanks for any help guys.

Since it's still so new, if you want to have any work done under warranty, the closest dealership is Springfield Subaru.

I've heard good things about LA Tint in Woodbridge, but don't have any experience with them personally.

Performance wise, I don't know of any decent shops in Woodbridge.

Yeah, check out LA Tint. They are the only ones in our area that I have never heard anything bad about. I haven't personally used them but have seen some of their work, and it's better than most of the other crap jobs I've seen done by other places in Woodbridge.

I will second LA Tint, never had an issue for my last 3 cars.

FYI I recently had a tint job done at JW Motors in Manassas, avoid them if possible..

Thanks for the advice about a tint place. I really want to get tail light overlays done.

And I was hoping there was a closer dealership, but that isn't too bad.

I got my tint done at LA Tint, great job. There's a subi dealer in Fairfax. I think it's called Parrish. Also there's Browns Subaru at Liberia and centerville in manassas

Don't forget Beyer Subaru in Alexandria. It's north from you on route 1.

Another +1 to LA Tint in Woodbridge, Manassas as well. I've used them both multiple times and they've always done good clean work.

^Agreed.

Also I'm assuming the dealers do body work? I bought the car with a small scratch on the hood scoop and I tried touching it up, but a professional job would be better.

For basic mechanical stuff and tire mounting, Quality (right by potomac mills) is excellent.
Have had them do basic brake stuff when I didn't have time and also they've mounted all my real deal JDM wheels and have never scratched them, tire stretching was a non-issue as well.
