Tinting...where to go

I wish I still had this contact I had for the first Mini I had tinted. The friend of the friend is no longer stationed here so I'm at a loss. Any good suggestions on a good place that professionally does them at a good price?

Welcome MiniCoastie, You'll find SSMINI a great group to belong to and associate with.

By way of information, when I bought my first MINI (a Chili Red S Hatchback) I had the windows tinted at Visual Effects, 209 10th St SE, Puyallup. Phone # (253)848-6991. They are a husband and wife team and did a superb job of tinting my windows. In March, when I took delivery of my new 2012 Chili Red Roadster, I had them tint my windows again. They did another great job and I love the effect. Their prices were reasonable as well. I hope this will help.

I hope to meet you soon at one of our upcoming events.

Personally, I used AccuTint. They have locations in Bellevue and Seattle. Got my windows done something like 5 or 6 years ago, and they still look great.

I'm just going to go out on a limb, and say that a drive to Philadelphia might be a LITTLE far to get a window tint done.

I stayed local and ended up getting them done at a place in Auburn. Superb job too. I do thank everyone for your suggestions though.

+1 on Visual Effects in Puyallup. Had my Clubman done there this week and they did a great job. By the way it's cash or check only, no debit / credit cards.
