    I'm taking delivery of my new S85 at the end of the month, and based on a number of other posts am considering getting Opti-Coat or some other similar protection for the car, as well as possibly tinting. Searches of other posts have recommended a place in Elmwood Park, but that's going to be very inconvenient. Can anyone recommend a body shop either in Chicago or on the North Shore?

    Did you guys ever find a good window tint shop around the North Shore?

    I have a good shop in the Western Burbs, but that probably isn't convenient for North Shore folks.

    They can do crystalline. They will do really whatever you want them to do. I went with llumar. They did it nicely. They take the tint all the way to the edge which makes it look like factory.

    this is awesome news. I am expecting delivery of my 86D in a week or two, and was dreading the drive to Glen Ellyn for Opticoat. Given their reputation, I would guess/hope they would have the same quality in the glenview location.

    Also, I hear the Tintworks in Vernon Hills is great for Llumar.
