Did Matt hook you up today? How does it look with the dot matrix on the rear window. I'll be bringing my wife's car to him soon.

+1 for Matt, awesome guy and good work. Had mine done a few weeks ago. 20% and I love it, although it's only a matter of time before I get pulled.

Sorry for the crappy phone picks:

^what he said. It's off S Pickett/Cameron Station in Alexandria. Kinda tucked away on the very end of the row, near the Midas. Google map it to get a better understanding.

Around $180-200. I called him last year and got a quote of $180, but ended up paying $200 about 2 months ago. Think the bump in price may be because he brought on another guy to help out, or b/c mine was illegal, or he squeezed me in last minute Was worth it either way. I'd just give him a call to find out. Easy guy to talk to/work with and does a quality job.

Not bad. I will give him a call.

Do you happen to know what type & brand of tint he uses?

I know he has Huper Optik ceramic, but that will run you a lot more than $200. I'll have to check when I get home about the "basic" stuff he uses, but there's a life time guarantee against fading/bubbles/etc. It's all hand cut too.

Not sure on the exact %s he has, but I'm sure he pretty much has everything. I walked in and said 20 and off he went. He has rolls of film all over the place.

Nice. How does this compare to what the dealer could do?

Wow... There is a TNT in Sterling as well, but I called them for a quote and I was not impressed... I told him I worked at BMW of Sterling and the guy said he'd give me a discount by taking off the price of the tax. My quote came out to $230 if I remember correctly. I ended up getting the guy who does the cars here at our dealership to do my car for $180. I guess they don't all operate the same.

Did you go to LA Tint in Sterling? I didn't think/know he had another shop out there, only in Alexandria. That price sounds more in line with LA as they run a little more.

I forgot to check the brand, but it's charcoal and he carries a lifetime guarantee. I have no experience with getting tint at a dealership, so I can't really comment on the quality or price. But I would assume, like everything, they'll charge you more at the dealership (unless you're K and have a hook up). May be worth it to ask? I know Matt at TNT has been in the area for several years and has done tints for most of the law enforcement agencies and athletes around VA/DC, and has a very good reputation in the area.

K - do you work out at BMW Sterling? How is the quality of the dealership tint job? And how much does it run for Joe off the street?

Yes, I work at BMW of Sterling. It's good quality tint (lifetime warranty encluded), but not sure what they normally charge. I work IT here, so I don't usually deal with customers and pricing. It's outsourced to a guy that does it from "The Tint Shop." It was really convenient for me too, because he just came by while I was at work, took my car to his shop, and came back with it a couple hours later when it was done. I didn't have to go anywhere.
