G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

Getting my tint done on Tuesday. Picking between 3M Premium FX, SolarGard HP Smoke, 3M FXHP or 3M Color Stable. Anyone have any of these listed? Probably doing 30-35% all windows

Pic of your 5 appears that you applied the OEM “M Performance “ logos on your front fenders-line designation in Europe?
Do you recall your measurements (template) for placement?
Much thanks!

It really depends on for what you are looking.

Personally, I could care less about looks. But, I could not go without tint as I really appreciate the leather protection, decreased IR, and glare reduction.

Hi,

Sorry to bring back the old thread, but any idea if the door panel needs to be removed for tint? I had my F10 tint without door panel removal but took the G30 in for tint to the same guy that did my F10 and I was told door panel needs to be removed for G30. Can anyone confirm if this is true? Although I trust the tint shop, I just need some affirmation!

Ah, thanks. This makes matters much more complicated, one the one hand, I trust these guys, on the other, I don't know if I should let them remove the door panel. Haha.

Mine neither. No issues either the tint neatly 2 years in. I wouldn’t have let the tint guys pull my door panels if they asked (they didn’t).

The shop I used didn't need to remove the door panels on my car either. When I asked about it, the owner said with the right tools and technique it would not be necessary.

This is my view as well. I tint for the same reasons.
