you will find that people that went to tom have nothing negative to say about him, myself included
i definitely agree, some people dont mind dropping an extra 200 bucks for tint that is "ceramic, huper optik etc" im fine with just good old black 3m or solar guard tint. I just appreciate a hard working guy who does a good job, the cheap price is an extra for me. thats why im reffering him to you guys

i really need to get my tint done like RIGHT after i pick my car up on monday, maybe tuesday morning.

Does he have 20% huper optik? Will it mess with my CA, Navi? How much to tint all around? How long does he take? I have a few friends with an M6, 325, and TC that want their cars tinted the same time i take mine. If hes as good as you claim he is and it doesnt mess with my ca, nav. Ive got plenty business for him

Is it me or do your tints look slightly purple? It may just be the reflection of the sky.

cheap film!!
not cheap film, a tinter that doesnt know the car.

the window gaskets need to be felted, bmw switched to partially felted front gaskets, and unfelted rear ones in march of 07.
grit gets caught in the gasket and scratches the tint when it goes up and down.

tom felted my gaskets when he tinted my windows with Huper 30, no problems over a year later.

Art of Tint (Optik) and F1 Pinnacle want 425-450 for tints. That's pretty outrageous. Does anyone have the number for Joe? I don't mind driving out there if he offers a good price on Huper Optiks for my E90.
