They did my clear bra. Great job and a fair price. Their tint film looked really good. But I went with a different guy closer to where I live.

Low is their prices compared to other places? Is it better to get the clear bra done at the dealership or there?

Hey Alex - it depends ont he dealership. BMW Mississauga charges $350 but I am not sure if that's for hood/fenders only, or if it includes the bumper. Either way, I am sure it is a cutout and not a wrap so there are lines all around instead of just the exposed edges. Trimline is $250 for just the hood/fenders/mirrors and $600 if you do the bumper wrap too. I'd find out if BMW Miss does the bumper for the $350 price, if so it's a good deal, the only concern is who they outsource it to.

I left a message for John a few days ago and haven't heard back from him yet

Any idea on what he charges to tint a E90 3 series sedan?

A quote directly from John:

"The cost for the PPF wrapped on the front bumper is $400 installed. The hood and fender pre-cut kit installed is $250. The 3M Tint is $350. It is by appointment."

hey yuggy, I have one my guys that does tinting.

$250 cash taxes in. We use Suntek premium film, and its a lifetime warranty from bubbling, wrinkling, peeling.

He specializes in BMWs, Mercedes & Audis. PM if you're interested.

I dunno, I am not affiliated with them in any way, just use them - could be busy, could be out of town. If you can't find 'em I'd go with christyle's guy.
