That worries me a bit, I'm always concerned about rattles, plus any damage etc. Must say like the look of yours though. Might buck up courage to get it done

The guy that did mine use to be a bmw technician as well as an utter perfectionist so I was more than happy letting him go to work on my car. I can see where your coming from though mate, just need to find someone you can trust to do a top job. Go for it makes such a difference to the look of the car

I'm looking at tinting the sides and rear on my alpine white E93, can anyone recommend a place in or near Halifax West Yorkshire?

Thanks alot mate, the film the guy used was 20% and I had no previous tint or privacy glass. Think there is a small amount of tint already in the window from factory even though its hardly noticeable. I think it's a good percentage to go with as its pretty close to factory privacy glass. Also would maybe look a little darker if you had a darker interior, mine is very light.
