    Hey guys, I am looking to tint my front to 50% or so ~ the sides being legal and they are too light, along with the front being too bright at night. Before I get it done, I was wondering if anyone had any insight about the Front windshield. It seems there is a coating of some film, very light...

    Hi there - My 2007, 328i coupe that I bought used 6 years ago had an unfortunate encounter with someone who smashed a ton of windows in our neighborhood last night. My windows are tinted and there does not appear to be signs of glazing - it looks factory to me. Here's my question - can you...

    What's good Bimmerfest! I recently bought a pre-owned 2014 435i. It has manufactures warranty for another year but I want some advice in regards to maintenance (daily, monthly, yearly) and any other helpful hints. Also would it better to wrap or dip the roof and rims of the car? Thanks!

    Hello! I am new here and this is my first time posting on this thread. I'm currently in the process of getting a family member's 335i 2008. It is complete stock and I think it is the sport edition. I want to black it out since it is a white car and to make it look a bit more sporty without...
  8. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    So I just purchased a new (to me) 2013 535i CPO. Traded in my 2010 E60 528xi. Went from alpine white w/auburn interior to alpine white w/oyster/black interior. E60 definitely went sportier, low-profiles, lowered, blacked out, rims/trim/grille, debadged, wrapped roof and side mirrors in glossy...

    Hi What is the tint percentage on the moonroof 2015 320i? I am thinking of tinting back windows and matching the moonroof would look good. Thanks

    I've been searching for local tint shops, while I have found a couple, I am curious which types are best for a 3 series. I know that Mercedes has issues with uphold tint due to tight window fitting, anything like this with the BMW?. Also, it seems like ceramic is the best way to go, would love...
  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Does anyone have any experience or thoughts on whether or not the 3m Crystalline 70 is worth installing in terms of heat reduction? The chart below states that the 40 tint rejects 60% of heat, which is only 10% more than what the 70 tint rejects, but I am not sure if there is a noticeable...

    I recently got my M3 tinted at Tint King, Inc in Billerica, MA. I did some research to find the best window film on the market and came across FormulaOne Series.
