Who does excellent window tinting in the Orlando, FL area?
 
I just bought my 135i two days ago and I need my windows blacked out asap. I hate not having any privacy from the outside world while driving my new toy.

so I wanted to ask the peeps in this forum for any recommendations to window tinters that do excellent work. I don't mind paying the extra $$$ as long as I'll be happy. I have some severe OCD which of course also extends to my 135i.

Good Question
 
Bump! Would like to know as well! Won't be getting mine till after my Euro Delivery but will definitely want a good quality tint job asap after delivery.

Another bump for a fellow Orlando 135i owner. Even if mine won't be back in the states until the end of summer.

There is a guy in the Kissimee area, his name is Paul Bazo, he does really great work.

You might ask your dealer as they usually have pretty good insight.

Cheers

I hate tint. I love to be seen in my cars. People with window tint look like they are scared to be seen.

In some cars, like the 1 series, I wouldn't want to be seen though. :dunno:

Lol your ego is THAT big that you drive around going "Oh yaaaa look at mee" in your head?:tsk:


Tint: Reduces amount of sunlight coming in making it easier to see on bright days while driving. Keeps the car cooler if it's parked in sunlight. Makes it harder to see what valuables might be in the car. etc..

nolan mangrum 12-14-2008 03:27 PM

tint
 
insaneskippy u r correct on what tint does. some people have no clue that tint does more than give u privacy. I have tint on all my cars. My 745i looks great with tint!

bimmerblack 12-14-2008 07:23 PM

This is my next to do...gotta have the tints.

All who live in Orlando area, I have to piggy back on what Nolan has mentioned; The company is called CHOICE WINDOW TINTING from Orlando.
Highly recommended; the finished product is phenomenal!
I have never seen auto tinting completed so perfectly; furthermore, he went out of his way and offered to jump start my family member's van during his tinting.
Ask for Troy. He is good with explaining his work and happily answer any questions you may have about the work.
He finished my 2005 Mazda 6 (which is a four door) in under an hour and a half.
For the high quality of the material and his work, it was surprisingly cheap!
No need to travel to look for them, they will come to you!
Again, highly recommended!!!
For my Mazda 6, the total came to $139; my wife saw the finished product, and was curious to know how much it would cost to tint her 318i.
To tint her 318i, Troy stated it would cost $119.
I hope this helps.
Here's their info.:
CHOICE WINDOW TINTING
(321) 439-3064
For Orlando and surrounding areas
They tint auto, residential, and commercial
One piece rear windows (which is great!)

Another Fields Location
 
Just tagging on to this Orlando related posting. Fields has opened up another location on South Orange Blossom Trail which used to be the Volvo dealership there. Right now they are only selling used cars but may offer new vehicles at some point. They also offer service there however which may be more convenient for some compared to the other location across town. I believe the service center on Sand Lake has been closed as part of this move. One down side is that they do not offer loaner cars at this location.

Took my 1 there for a few items the other day and everything was handled very well.

This may be a little late, but The Tint Man mobile tinting is good. I have used Shawn, the owner a couple of times in the past. Does a pretty good job and guarantees his work. I believe he does all the work himself.

I have ALWAYS used Dave Forester, he's in winter park off fairbanks and Cherry St. I think. Reasonable prices and great service. he's done MANY of the cars in CFBMW.org group. Once I find his card i'll give more info. He even tinted my mom's front window perfectly (she has vision issues with bright lights) and I know that had to be a pain since getting into the corners and such...

+1, I like the reverse mirror so I don't have to look at the common folk but they don't need to be deprived of the opportunity to view all the brilliance that is me :D

Tinting is a necessity in Orlando. I lived there for 12 years so i know. NEVER EVER EVER go with a person or company for tinting. Always go through the dealership. Tinting in high humidity environments like Orlando requires the services of professionals who know what they are doing and many dealerships have established relationships with experienced, insured and bonded tinting services.

brucegn525i 07-18-2009 11:04 AM

I know this is an older thread, but I just purchased a BMW and I want to get the windows tinted. I contacted my dealership and they suggested somebody, but I figure he might up his price on a referral from a dealership. I am looking into getting the huper optik and I would appreciate anyone's experience with the product and is it worth the extra price? If it is worth the money who in the Orlando area does a lifetime warranty install? Does Troy do the Huper Optik? If not worth the money, what is? Thanks

nolan mangrum 08-09-2009 01:14 PM

u can call troy at choice window tinting orlando. He has llumar atx film that is ceremic and does not interfere with radio waves. The cost is almost twice as much as atr metalized. If u use am radio often then go with ceramic if not then save ur money and go with metalized film. troys number is 321-439-3064 or www.choicetints.com. hope this helps.

I like generalized statements like this one which justify spending more thru a stealership. Who do you thing does the tinting at the dealership? I am talking after market. Dealerships don't have a tint crew nor a detail crew around for this type of work. they actually work with third party folks who have good referrals....

One way to find a good local tint guy is to call x dealership and ask the employees who does the tinting for their own vehicles or dealership.
