I just got mine done at Shades of Grey in Feasterville, PA which is just outside of Philly. They did a really good job and many of the high-end car owners in the area tend to go there. Would be quite a hike if you're actually in State College, PA though.

Thanks! What type of tinting film did you go with? That is quite a drive for me.

Trek on baltimore pike in springfield is supposed to be one of the best. I personally have not used them but everyone I know who has used them in the past has had nothing but great things to say. They quoted me $225 to do all 5 (both driver / passenger, and rear) I just never pulled the trigger.

I went with The Installation Doctor in York. John did a great job!

Shades of Gray quoted me 180 for the whole thing, minus the windshield.

That's what I paid and I have a vert (smaller rear window).

Yeah man that looks great. I was looking for space grey when I got mine. The tint looks good on that color.
