    Okay...so my tint guy asked me if I wanted heat protection or light protection. When I said heat protection, he showed me the 3M Chrystalline stuff. He was able to demo it for me. Apparently 3M has put a lot of R&D behind this stuff. So....I now have it applied to all my cars, ASAP. And today, I had him do the new baby. There are darker options, but I go with the 40% stuff.

    The 40% looks good. Did you get the EyeBrow tint above the windshield?

    No. I didn't have him so the windshield. And I think the windows were already tinted some from the factory...so it's darker than I think it would normally be

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a tint shop in Chicagoland? I have very limited space where I park so I would much rather pay a professional than try the install with my doors halfway open and neighbors watching through their windows. Thanks

    I have two to recommend. I have personally used both. In order of preference.....

    1.) Located in Frankfort, IL. is Shockwave Customs. Owner is Anthony or "Tony".

    Website: http://shockwavecustom.com

    2.) Located in Mokena, IL. is Abe's Custom Car Care. Owner is Abe.

    Website: http://abescustomcarcare.com

    If you use either of the above, let them know that I referred you (& no, I get nothing for it) but just tell them that Mike with the black/white SHO says "hello". That's all.

    Good luck!
