Tinting Place on Mainline

Does anyone know of any higher end tinting places located on the mainline. Preferably 10-15 mins from villanova area.

what do you mean by high end? figure "mainliners" (ones with money) are not down with doing stuff to their cars since they can just order whatever direct from the dealer. i'd recommend Sunsational Signs in Bridgeport (between the 2 bridges on dekalb street). those guys have done nothing but tint for 20+ years. i've done 5 cars there and sent friends. plus you can haggle if you can pay cash. otherwise, if you have something exotic enough to qualify for SPEED's "unique whips" you may want to ask the dealer who sold it to you.

I live in West Phila, Work in Narberth and drove to SOG just this past weekend. I'd highly recommend that.

Shades of Gray. Worth the trip. Less than a one hour drive from Villanova. I had my classic Mini done there last year, it is still perfect.

Good Vibrations Auto Salon does great work. all of their tint is guaranteed for life and its all computer cut. give them a call 215-675-8204.
its not real close to you but why get poor quality just to save you 30minutes of driving.
