Tinting

Does anyone know of any good Window tinting shops around the Naperville/aurora area?
I got a quote at at one place for $300. That's doing 20% all the way around. Sound like too much?

Sounds about right. I know some downstate, but it sounds fair for the 7 windows (yes, that little triangle counts on the back door on a jetta. Not sure if this is for a jetta of golf though)

$200-$300 is fair. I had my mk5 done for $220 with a lifetime warranty.

Yeah it's for a jetta, and I'm pretty sure it's a lifetime warranty.

Shady days! Lifetime guarantee. My buddy had some and his window got smashed and they tinted the new one for nothin. He had a few cars done there so he was a regular. It's north of you a bit... Lake bluff.
