my e90 was done by sunset tinting in woodridge. they did a pretty good job on my car, but an ok job one of my buddies car. i think i know of 4 people that have brought it there. i brought the e61 to umbra tinting in arlington heights. he did a great job on the wagon. i would recommend him overall. i know of a few others on this forum that have brought their cars to him as well.

yea the pricing was pretty good. i dont remember off hand how much it was, but it was definitely cheaper than sunset tinting in woodridge. plus he had to do 2 extra windows since it was a wagon. i was actually gonna ask him to do my stock tails also, but decided it wasnt really necessary since i have blacklines. i was just going to get them done to get them done. i actually asked nino(umbratinting) about the vinyl overlay for the window trim and he said he could do it, but he said he couldnt warranty it for life like the window tint. i told him that i would just give him a call back if i wanted to get it done since i had the wagon and not my car. i havent had the chance to go back since its kind of a hike for me.

I've found that having multiple infractions gives you some negotiation power, as long as you have some negotiating skills.....unless you've been drinking or are .

I got mine done in Joliet by Precision Tinting. I went with the Huper Optik (Ceramic) and it came out great. I'd recommend the premium tint unless you have CA, since it's cheaper, dries faster, and does a better job on the dot matrix. They did a good job on my dot matrix, but I learned from a post on the M3 forum that the best way to do it is to put black tape over it.


Precision Tinting
Quoted prices for e92:
-Regular tint ($170)
-Premium tint ($200)
-Huper Optik ($350)
