guten tag

im going on a road trip and will be coming through Germany. first Munich, then to the Nurburgring passing Stuttgart and Frankfurt on the way.

does anyone know of any good mod shops for BMWs in Munich or on my route? ideally i want somewhere good but cheap to tint all the car.

thanks

Well, I would say cheap mods/Germany are two things that don't go together...but you live in the UK...so maybe that doesn't apply..

Tint in Germany can be a pain to come by too....I had to find "Hidden" side shops to do mine...

yeah we prob get ripped off a bit more here in the UK. for example to do rear tints properly it costs around €250-300! im thinking hopefully Germany may be a bit cheaper.

you know of any places in Munich, Stuttgart or Cologne?

I don't sorry...I lived about an hour west of Koln....but I only went there for family trips...same thing for Munich/etc...

I lived next to Neiderheid/Geilenkirchen. There are a couple of good tint shops there. If you wanted to stop in that area...I could show you on the map where one of them is...

If your in the K-Town/Ramstein area I know a good shop. Uses Swisswax etc... Most all the M-Flight guys use his place. Usually full tint is done under the table because front window tint is illegal. Just PM me if your interested in knowing more.

So i reached Zurich yesterday. Drove from a German town called Oppenau, to Freiburg and then on to Zurich. Right through the middle of the Black Forest.

O.M.G!!!!!!!!!!!What a beautiful place!! I adored the scenary and the roads, wow, it really is a driver's dream. Its one of the most gorgeous places i have ever seen. All i can think of now is to go back there. I miss it I wna live there.

Off to Italy tomorrow through the Alps, then Vienna and then to Munich, where i will go on the BMW tour Where can i find an unlimited speed section of the Autobahn near Munich?
