    Car Pretty, they are on bustleton ave in northeast philly...just a heads up tho, if you have a newer (08+) they might have some issues getting the bottom of the back window all the way to the bottom, just the way the car is designed. but other then that, they were pretty cheap and fast and good

    shades of gray has done a lot of subies well. i don't know if they are a vendor here, but they are on IWSTI, and may give you a discount for that. they usually run a winter special.

    Trek Glass Tinting in Springfield, PA...about 10-12 miles from center city on Baltimore Pike. Looking it up on the web shows it as 415 Baltimore Pike, however there is a location next to Pappou's Pizza Pub (near Rt. 420, across from Babies R Us)...not sure if there are actually 2 locations but I've always been familiar with just the one near Pappou's. I haven't had my car done there yet, but I've seen about a half-dozen cars that have been done there & they do fantastic work. Last I recall a 4-door sedan was about $250.

    I've used these guys...AWESOME tint job and the owner Had/has a built 05 STI. They "specialize" in Subarus.

    They also use Llumar tint which is warrantied for the life of the car, and can be repaired/replaced at ANY shop that uses Llumar tint specifically.

    Prices are pretty good as well...$160 for all 5 windows is what I recall paying

    Thanks for the input. I'm over in West Chester so Trek seems to be a good option.

    If you're willing to come down to DE, Cindy's Glass Tinting in Wilmington is the best, IMO. She's been doing my cars for 14+ years now (19 cars overall) and offers lifetime guarantees, too. Reasonably priced also - tell her I sent you down and she'll take care of you

    Definitely go to Shades of Gray. They tinted my Bimmer and were absolutely amazing. GREAT guys over there. They let me take my car without paying wile waiting for my friend's to be finished. They use LLumar tint and it has a lifetime warranty.

    I used Sun and Shade. http://sunandshade.net/

    They're the only licensed 3M tinters in the area. They're located in Creamery...same building as Creamery Tires.
