Warning if tinting.

I had mine done and the tint guy was shocked that e90 M3's do not have felt lining inside the rubber/plastic guide on the inside of the door trim.
With dirt and dust trapped my driver door tint is now extremely scratched.
I'd love to hear from others who have tint to see if they have the same issue and if not who did their tint?
Cheers
Nick

$650 for tint?? My cousin paid $280 for all windows with the highest end tint. Mind you it was a bit of a ghetto shop, they knew how to do their job.

I went to a more professional place and paid premium of $440 in Canada. So I'm pretty sure you can get it for like than $300 here

On the back? Pretty ugly haha looks kinda like the wet look. But Rob's work is second to none he has done 2 of my cars now, i think cost is around 3-400 can't remember off top of my head.

On a side note, I discovered a scratch in my passenger side window.. Hairline so won't replace but annoying!

Right. Price for tint in a different country. Are you saying because he paid $160,000 for his car he got ripped off?
