3M trimline in NV...they also do mobile tinting. Did 7 windows for 300ish....(can't say exactly cause you may not get the same deal). I've had another car tinted by them and they did terrific work. They also made the stickers that specialty has been giving out.

I'm still trying to decide if I want the regular tint or the reflective style. I checked out that place near boyz club today and they look like they do a good job.

3M Trimline on clark dr. near broadway is a good place.

About the reflective tint, I've asked both Ideal Tint and 3M Trimline and got negative answers. The guy at Ideal said that the reflective tint is not legal, even though they sell it and the guy at 3M Trimline said that reflective tint is actually used for flat surfaces on buildings, and would have to apply it in pieces for a car.

I have 5% tint on all the rear windows and nothing on the fronts. It's the dark kind, and it looks good. I'm not big on reflective tint.

Do they use metallic tint?? I am looking for a good shop to tint my TLS as well... was gonna go with Mirror-Look reflective tint, but figure I would go with just metallic tint... and I am also worry about bubles.....

BTW, do you have the address for 3M trimline??

u have to go to IDEAL tint for those kinda tint....

i don't think reflective tint is legal....it's only legal for Lexus as it is factory tint or sth? (which u can dispute the ticket to the dealer or sth???)

ET: i will just get regular tint....
