(Chicago) Place that does good vinyl wrapping?

Anyone know of a shop that could do this in the area?

I've got the roll of Vinyl from BMWshaddowline.com and I want to wrap my chrome window trim when it warms up.

Anyone know of a place that can/will do something like that?

You could try Umbra Window Tinting in Schaumburg. I got my tints done there. I dont know if they do it, but he did say something to me when he saw my shadowline trim if it came stock like that because he's had people ask about making their chrome trim black/shadowline.

http://www.umbrawindowtinting.com/ I usually communicate with him via email, which should be on that web site.

The guys name is Nino, great guy and great work. Tell him Ryan with the Gray 135 sent you.

Xtreme Graffix in Villa Park.... See Josh, he's worked on my car & my friends. Great prices & great service, not to mention he's a BMW guy too, drives a 335i.

Update.

I had Josh and his crew over at Xtreme Graphics do this today for me.

I had told them I was pressed for time, so they had four people working on my car at the same time to expedite the install. In and out in just under 30 minutes and it looks flawless.

If anyone is looking for a place to get this done at in Chicago, I'd highly recommend them.

I was in such a hurry to get back I didn't take any (i had it done over my lunch hour).

I'll get some up soon. It completely changes the look of the car.... I can't even believe it.

Okay,

I'm notorious for taking terrible pictures... this is no different. I know these are rediculously dark.

I'll get some outside when I find some time. Trust me when I say it looks better than OEM.
