ProTint

I second ProTint.

Guys come from all over Ontario to get this guy to tint their cars. He goes around to Windsor dealers and paint shops and does tinting for them, so he has tonnes of experience and a really good reputation.

Google Dave from Tinter's Direct Windsor and look at the reviews. He is no longer with Tinter's Direct though due to some problems.

Dave quoted my 4dr E36 at $180, so i imagine your might be the same.

I had my windows tinted at tint direct about 2 yrs ago. And it was the worst tint I've ever had. The guy who owned it was some guy named Tony and he was a total crook.

Tinters Direct

lebreeze, yes I second that. I just had my window's done by Tony but the quality was not that great and he over charged me (even after I took my door panels off for him). I didnt realize Dave was no longer with TD.

In summary, DO NOT GO TO TINTER'S DIRECT, go to Dave @ ProTint... I dont know exactly what happened, but Dave left Tinter's Direct.

Deans Auto Shine does a great job but charges bit more than Protint.
He did my 740, took out old tint and put all new 15% tint 4 windows and back windshield for $300. Lifetime warranty on the tint. Ask for Dean-great guy with great reputation.

Sorry to bump an old thread but I think this is relevant. Based on this thread, I had my E70 done at PROTINT but I definitely would NOT call this the best guy in the city. I would say at best they did a C+ job. There is some debris under the tint on both front windows so it feels rough to the tough in those spots. Also although its computer cut, the edge is not totally straight with the windows. Also they left the key on so the battery died on the car while they were doing it (were talking a new car here not an old beater, this should give you some indication of how long it took them to do it too). To get a metiocre job like this there are many other cheaper places in the city, not recommended.

Anybody have other recommendations for tint shops? I guess pro tint has closed. The building is empty with no signs. Looking for a nice tint.

Thanx!!
