I have not used them myself yet but I believe Momentum BMW uses them for
their tint. Once I get the car in I am going to go by and see how their stuff looks. Good luck.

I have the FormulaOne Pinacle done by them through Momentum. It looks great and worked very well through the heat of the summer. I think you will love it. The special price of $399 is a very good deal - I'd jump on it if I were you.

I have heard good and bad things about Huper Optik. I have a feeling the quality of HO and F1 Pinnicle are pretty close. FormulaOne has better heat ratings... they also have slightly different tint color. Also HO is lighter looking from the outside... if you want more privacy go with F1.

Hunter what % tint did you have? Im kinda leaning toward 15%. I think 30/35 is a little too light. Now if HO made a 15-20% tint I would be happy.
