On my previous car I used Winners Window Tint in Rockville, MD, and they did a great job. This time I used someone closer.

This is their price quote, in case you're interested:

When I first got my P85, I did the research on where to get tinted windows on my Tesla. and I remember someone mention about Absolute Perfection on this forum. So I got LLumar FormulaOne PINNACLE Series tinted windows on my P85 at Absolute Perfection (5397 Enterprise Street, Sykesville, MD 21784 Tel: 41049-4285 ). As I know, they have done the tinted windows for many Tesla and also did a great job on mine.

Anyone have experience with any installers between Rockville / Silver Spring and north Baltimore? I'm hoping to not have to drive an hour into NoVA to drop off my 85D and then again to pick it up.
This an older post. I am looking for recommendations for any type of paint coat (ceramic Pro/Opticoat), all around protection film, and window tint in the Bethesda/Silver Spring/Rockville area. i am willing to go upto Columbia/Ellicott city too. I want the job to be excellent. My model S has solid black paint.

Let's try this again. @scottreds2k where did you get your car coated? I've gotten some eye popping quotes for paint protecting film and ceramic coating my Model 3. On the other hand, I've seen some more reasonable quotes for similar service from Winners Window Tint in Rockville. They get excellent marks for tinting, but I can't find reviews for PPF & ceramic coating.

I did not get my car coated. I got tint done up in Baltimore. I'd have to do some research to figure out what the name was.
 
RJ at Speed & Tech Motoring at 1 (703) 565-4508 in Aldie, VA, close to dulles, wrapped my silver 2018 Model S in Xpel Satin Stealth. Tinted windows with Xpel Prime, 45 all around. True professional. Best price and great service.

If you decide to work with him, mention Mitch with the Silver Model S.
