Arrow Bay Area Tint Shops - Comfort Access

The car will be arriving early July and I'd like to tint my windows.

I've heard too many stories about how this affects CA users. Any shops with CA tinting experience so my CA doesn't get F'ed up?

i think its just what film they use... but i dont know... some people using non full metal films and are having problems with CA and i believe there were a few people who used full metal films and had no problems with CA... i believe most people would say that anything ceramic should be fine.

maybe somebody else can chime in...

Rocky Mountain WindowTints (run by Matt)
4749 Bennett Dr, Suite M
Livermore, CA 94551
(925) 373-2577
Tues-Sat 8-6pm

Although I don't have CA, Matt explained the cermaic tint does not affect the CA. His shop uses Formula One Pinnacle ceramic tint and he does the majority of East Bay's Bmw's in Pleasanton. Matt installed my tints (35%) in less than 3 hours and did an excellent job. Price went up to $399, but if you invested over $40k in a car then the price really shouldn't matter because you are also paying for the quality. Here's a quick pic of my Jet Black w/ Beige Leather int. 330i
