Window tinting in Minneapolis?

Any recommendations for quality window tinting in the Twin Cities? Just bought a 2011 328i touring to replace my 2002 325xi touring that was declared totaled after getting t-boned by an unlicensed driver this past August.

Tint Pros has done three of my cars and I've been very happy with them.

My Ride: Too many to list
Have heard many good things about DarkDan. He's a frequent poster on local boards, specifically tcstangs and mngmp (not sure where else he's on). Search for his screenname on one of those.

My Ride: 2004 325CI vert
I have had many vehicles done at Ziebart by Maplewood mall. Their work has always been flawless and reasonably priced with the 3M lifetime film. They will tint to whatever percentage of darkness you want as long as you are willing to sign a liability waiver in the event you were ever to get a ticket (I've only gotten one in over twenty years for tint, and it was really dark). I just checked last month for my 04 vert and both side windows, two rear quarter windows and the back window would run about $270.00 for the 3M lifetime film.

My Ride: F30 328i M Sport
Gjerde's Solar Shield in Savage also does excellent work. My employer gets all of our vehicles done there and it is great quality.

Good to know that I can get it done at Imola Motorsport though. I have a 2013 X1 xDrive28i M Sport in the works, and the lack of tint on the windows looks goofy.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Had the tinting done last week at Tint Pros. They were fast and did a great job. I went with a 30% tint front and back.

Looks great! They did a good job on my E46 back in the day.
