Window Tinting Near Columbia Maryland
I just bought a used 2010 M3 with low miles. I know, I need to get pictures posted...
The car came with tinted windows, but I had to have the tinting removed so the car would pass inspection. Don't ask! It cost me $100 to have the window tinting removed.
I want to get the windows tinted again. I'm told that 35 is the maximum I can go in Maryland and be legal. I'll assume that's true.
Question is, what place would you recommend? I heard of Performance Tinting, but don't know anything about them. According to their website, they offer three grades of tinting, one with a metal in the tint. I know I don't want that. I have the comfort access and a Nav system, and, of course, a cell phone. I heard the metal based tint will interfere with one or all of them.
They have a medium grade that will cost about $220. This tint uses the SunTek Carbon tinting. The higher grade uses Huper Optik Ceramic tinting which costs about $380.
Does anyone have an opinion about either of the two higher grade tints good or bad? If neither is a good choice, are there recommendations for a shop or a brand of window tinting?
Are the windows tinting kits specific to a model of car? I'm guessing yes as they need to fit the windows exactly. If not, are they cut to fit? If yes to the cutting, are there dangers to the interior of the car?
How about to the heating element in the back window? Any one have comments on that?
