Whoa, there's an LATint on Route-1 in College Park? I did mine at the LATint on Route-1 in Virginia near the Krispy Kreme.

There's also a great spot in Rockville called Details Details Details. Shop around bro, and also check on the Capital Area Regional Forum on Vortex.

:lol: I know you did a search??

Winner's Tint

I got my '02 GLS wagon tinted at Winner's Tint, which is in rockin' Rockville. They use a computer-operated cutting machine for the tint, rather than cutting it by hand. They were very professional and courteous. I had them apply 3M brand tint. They also had another brand that was cheaper (Llumar perhaps). They did the wagon for about $200. I highly recommend them, but because of one 1" scratch in the tint on the rear glass, I give them a 9 out of 10 instead of 10 out of 10.

Please forgive my stupid question but do we have problem with the police for having our car tinted? I really want to have mine done but have read from another post that someone had problems with a cop because of that.
Thanks. :nervous:

Each jurisdiction has their own laws concerning Window-Tinting. I get a kick out of hearing people with DC tags boasting about their tinted windows because if they catch a DC Vehicle Inspection Clerk or Metropolitan Police Officer on the wrong day the Good Times are over! It is illegal to have any Window Tinting Film on vehicles with DC-Tags, unless you have an exemption!! Many officers don't enforce it, unless you have very dark tint on your cars or they are pressed to make quota! Don't be shocked when the police begin to enforce tinting more aggressively because of all these knuckleheads riding in Smoked-Out Ghetto Get-Away Buckets.

Officers are now carrying tint-meters in their squad-cars and will measure your tint on the spot. The general-rule for Maryland and VA is if you can place your drivers license on the glass and it isn't legible, then the officer will measure your tint to check for violations.

Here's a site which breaks down the Window Tinting Laws...
