Window Tinting

Anyone know of a good place to get window tinting done for a GTI in Chicago? I got my MK6 done at Umbra Tinting but was wondering if there was a place in the city that people have had their GTI done. Most places don't want to do a GTI because of the back window

Chicago Auto Pros as well. They will do the weird little quarter windows on the MK7 as well.

Shaded Days up in Lake Bluff does a nice job. Good price on Llumar ceramic film.

I don't remember exactly. The Llumar CTX (they have formula something now which is even better) was a bit pricey and the little quarter windows were an extra $50. I think it was high $300's

Tint to U @Orland Park.

Formulaone pinnacle for $349 total including the front triangle windows.

Huge shout out for umbra. I’ve had 3 cars done there and they’re simply the best. Worth it anywhere in Chicago land.

Just had my R done - perfection. Nino is the best!!

Yep Nino is the best! I had mine done there. I'm regular next door to Lustr Detail with Roman/Ivan. Worth checking out for keeping your R clean! :P
