If you're calling around to different tint shops, ask them how they would handle dot matrix and any answer that doesn't include an overlay, hang up.
So an E90 does not have the same dot matrix? I have an E92 and asked the shop about this. I was told they could have the tint lay almost flush against it with no noticeable imperfection

E90 and e92 have 2 totally different rear windshields and the e90 doesn't have the 3" of dot matrix that the e92 has. I'd stay away from that place and find another.

If you are in the Richmond Virginia Area, Virginia Solar Tinting does a great job, excellent customer service... they have tinted 99% of my car club's vehicles and my previous car... Having my new one tinted in a couple weeks, will post pictures when complete...

They are overhauling their website soon, so try not to judge them too much by that...

I'm going to go to Absolute Perfection or Driven Dynamics as soon as my M arrives. I assume Tim at AP is still recommended. They have a $30 off coupon on the site.

Can you post an up close pic of your dot matrix?
