I would highly recommend TintPros in Roseville, as I have taken literally every car I have ever owned there and they have always done an amazing job for me. I am pretty anal over my cars and they will usually even let you watch during the installation process. They do both the clear bar and tinting so it could be a one-stop-shop for you. Just my own personal suggestion tho. Depends on where you are located too I suppose.

trim

Anyone get their window trim done recently?? I'm looking to do the trim matte black on my E93. I called Sam sign's didn't sound cheap. Called Alekshop but reception was bad (google voice really) and have sent an email but no response. I'm in the East/northbay. So I was gonna possibly contact HD salon in San jose. Any current info and help I would appreciate.

I'd like to recommend European Collision Center in San Francisco. They did great work on my E92 and everyone I've recommended them to has said the same. http://europeancollision.com/

I would like to add a note about Alekshop in Fremont. Great place to get work done on the M3. I had my BBS wheels installed there recently. Aleks does a thorough job, with a meticulous approach to his installs. His shop is CLEAN. Overall great experience from making the appointment to completion of work requested.

Shop to install side gills on E90

Anyone know of a shop in the Bay Area (near SF preferrably) that has installed side gills on a E90 sedan specifically? I tried several times using several different DIY methods from the threads posted here with no luck. I didn't want to crack or chip my paint, so I didn't want to force anything. So I'd like to go to a shop that someone has had a good experience getting side gills installed on their E90 sedan.

They do pretty good work, however their customer service is a joke. I would never go back. Had my old iForged wheels repaired and refinished. They told me a week. Called every couple of days to a new excuse. Took over a month to finish. Thank God I had my stocks wheels still. I know a couple of other people who have had issues with them as well.

Walnut Creek is a bit out of the way for me, since I'm in South San Jose, but I may give them a shot if I can't find anywhere down here.

Thanks for the recs!
