yeah, i got the f1 ceramic film. it came out good. if you look really close, you might see a little bubble, but i'm not complaining. i got my e92 335i and m3 done there. both came out good. that owner is cool and drives a e90 335i.

I went to California Tint in Rosemead.
Some people say it's a hit or miss w/ them, but mine came out good. Non-Metallic for $120.

hey... i don't know if u got ur tint yet... but i work at a shop in laguna hills... near tint plus... if u want... i'll hook u up... but to let u know.. tint plus... their tint isn't the top of the line shit... it's works for couple years... i don't want to sound like an ass... but i used to use that same film... but i was having return customers after few years with issues about the film... well i'am around the corner... so let me know if u need some help... i'll help u guy's out...
by the way there is another good shop up the hill from me... called, terrific tint... they do a great job... (i know cause i used to work for them)... but they are hella expensive... i used to work in rowland heights at a shop called tnt audioworks... i don't know if anybody talks about us, but we had few good reviews...
hope ur tint works out for you...
