I've tried a couple of places (one in WPB and the other in Boca) without great success. My current M3 is not tinted because it is so hard to find a good shop. I'm going to Serious Autosport on PB Lakes Blvd. in WPB on Monday to get some tires mounted/balanced. They also tint cars and while tires/wheel mounting/balancing is a different story, I'll let you know what I think of the shop in general. So far, everyone I've spoken to on the phone has been very professional.

I got my tires mounted/balanced at Serious Autosport (it is a division of Audio Advisors) and have to say that they did a very nice job. Everyone was very professional and courteous and the customer area nicely set up. I did not get to go into the shop to take a look but suspect everything is in order. I asked about tinting and Jared told me that all the cars parked outside had been tinted by them. Unfortunately, I could not get a close-up look at the workmanship because of the rain today.

I am now considering getting my car tinted by them but will have to make another visit to get a good look at the workmanship. I suggest that if you want to get tint, visit them and ask whatever questions you want. Also take a look at the cars they've done, and perhaps you can even ask to check out the shop. I'm sure they'll accommodate your request.

If you do get your tint there, please post back to let us know how it went.

I had my E90 tinted there almost 2 years ago. They did a great job on it. I would recommend them. They also did some OEM installs for me.

check out Pepe @ Auto Supershield. While i've never had anything done by him/them, I have only ever heard good things. Can't remember exactly where that shop is but pretty sure it's somewhere near wpb.

I stopped into Serious Autosport the other day and I don't think I'll be going back. I asked the guy about tint, he asked me what kind of car, I told him it was an '11 M3 and he seemed puzzled. Had to google image search the car.

He's got a ton of 5 star reviews on yelp - interesting. While I don't believe in yelp anymore, I'm sure the preponderance of fives indicates some sort of skill. I'll probably contact him as well when I finally get my car.

Not saying that place is paying it off - but points to what I've always thought!

Couldn't get the video to load, says page not found. But the guy was super nice on the phone, and I guess I'll find out next week when I take the car in.
