Tint, esp Huper Optik owners please chime in

I got in touch with a reputable tint shop in the Boston area and the owner states that there are issues with the HO tint in the E92 such that the top portion of the tint won't stick to the window and will peel off easily. Does any one have problems with their tint? If not, I'd order some Formula One films and have a different tint shop tint the windows instead.

there is a thread titled 'does this tint look right to you' or similar that touches this exact subject. But in a word: yes.

They are referring to the edge of the side windows, not the dot matrix. I already know about the issue with the dot matrix.

huper optik is the greatest product ever!!! maybe an exageration but not by much. tint is applied as well as any other tint i've had. the heat reduction and look are amazing.

Does anyone have HO on an E93? Does the extra thickness cause any issues with rear windows rolling down or with roof operation (which requires lowering rear windows)?

That might make or break it for me vs. the F1 tint.
