The Nov. 6 batch turned-out very nicely as well.
Please put-up some pictures!

Despite our precautions, we did have one no-show at the end of the day and that's very annoying.

Will post again to announce the date for the next batch.

Thank you everyone.

We did a few cars this past Sat. Apr 28. Everyone was on time and pleased with the work done.

Hüper Optik looks amazing darker colors.

Please let me know if you'd like to join the next group. Date to be determined. I have one car on standby. Need another 4.

I got my 535i tinted by Tom at the Art of Tint this past Saturday (April 28th) and boy it was a great experience. Tom was a very nice and respectable man. He is pleasurable to work with and right away I knew he would take care of my car like it was his own. He answered all my questions regarding tint installation and the different tint films. He also told me what not to do after the tint was installed. Overall, I was very happy with my tinting experience and would recommend Tom without hesitation. He is the man!

Finally, I would like to personally thank v12 for his hard work and setting this up for me. He was excellent in communicating with me and setting up my appointment with Tom. He gave me his personal experience with Tom and assured me I would have the same experience and I definitely did. So once again, Thanks v12!!

If anyone has questions, you can post here or PM, I would be glad to answer.

Next group Sat Jul 28. I have 3 spots left. Tinting takes two hours. Location: Manhattan.

Please do not contact Tom directly. There will be no group-pricing without a password.
I put these groups together for him. PM me if interested.

Thank you.

Yup, no kidding. Like an idiot I got limo tint on all windows. On way back from the tinter, I got pulled over by State Police and he only gave me a warning.
Needless to say i got it removed and went with 30%

What a bitch, it looked hot too!!

Here are a few pics with the Limo Tint
