He's done two of my cars and no dot matrix issues. Many others claim the same.
Both of my cars were done with Huper Optik, as well as most, if not all others who had no dot matrix issues. He also does Madico film, but I can't comment on how the dot matrix comes out with Madico. Huper is a thicker film than Madico.

He actually just won a competition recently here in socal installing Madico film. He will be competing in the national contest soon, representing Madico. Go Hann!!

Huper Optik

You can also try Xlnt Tint in Anaheim. They did my 335i and my daughters '10 Wolfsburg Jetta with the Huper Optik and everything turned out great. About six months ago, I did get pulled over when I was in San Diego for the front tint, and the shop removed it for free so I could get my fix it ticket signed off.

Hey guys,

I've come across a really cool mechanic and car enthusiast. He had installed my coilovers and then swapped them out for my stock suspension before I sold the GTI. I then entrusted him working on my 135i, he treats your car as if its his own. He takes his time, plans and works on your car. I really like his work ethics and demeanor.

Best of all his prices are incredible! I mean no shop or buddy will work on your car as cheap as he does. Sometimes what he asks for is so low that I give him an extra $20.

He works on all types of cars, Nissan/Infiniti, VW/Audi, Bmw etc. He can install any mod you like from intake to turbo/supercharger kits, he's located in the Van Nuys/Sherman Oaks area.

Here is his cell phone number, you may call or text him. Just mention John with the 135i referred you and say john told you about the low prices... I promise you will not be disappointed with his prices.

I had my downpipes & coilovers installed at Garagerz Automotive in Burbank, Ca. The service writer Robbie Perez helped me out and hooked me up with very fair pricing. I definitely found where I'm taking my car in for the next service.

Any good mechanics on the west side of LA? I'm now looking at a boost leak & starter issue. Who knows, it may be hpfp - and I'm out of warranty now.

I run a certain business (wont say because I am not a vendor), but I am contracted with many of the best shops in LA/OC for any sort of mod and would have no problem referring you to them. As you see the cars under my profile name, they work on the best and charge very reasonably (I'm desi, we are bargainers, lol).

Hit me up, wraps, bodykits, wheels, etc.. I can hook you up with the shops here.

*I do not do services or tune-ups. Strictly mods.
