window tint question

still waiting for our baby -- she has made it to the VPC; hopefully she will be at the PDC soon.

when she gets home, I'll have a clear bra and window tint installed. For the tint, do I need felt added? On my E93, felt had to be added so that tint would not scratch every time the windows go up and down. did a search on this subforum, and "tint" did not show up at all!

I installed dark Formula 1 Pinnacle Ceramic on my 550GT and did not need to install felt either. I have Black Sapphire Metallic over Black Perforated Leather and here in Austin Texas (85 days over 100 degrees this summer and counting) the best thing I ever did was installing limo darkness tint on the two sunroof panels at a cost of $150. Makes my car cool down as quickly as my old Alpine White X5 35d.
