    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.

    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.

    I realize that this is an old thread, but for anyone currently looking for Opticoat / Xpel coatings in the MD/DC area, I had Rob from Proform Auto (Home - Proform Auto) in Ellicott City apply Opticoat and a partial Xpel wrap and was very happy with the results. He has quite a bit of experience with Teslas.
