M3 Tint Work and Clear Bra

Any recommendations on some credible contacts that have rock solid experience with tinting and bra work?

I'm in Corona and work in the OC

Let me know please

Premier is going to do a tour of SoCal November 16-19. As you've probably seen on these forums, many consider them to be best with the clear film.

I just got my film (hood, bumper, fenders) and tint done by Premier--I couldn't wait until November so I actually drove up to the Bay Area a couple weeks ago and had all the work done.

I highly recommend them!

I have just about seen them all and Premier gets my thumbs up by a large margin. They will be setting up shop right near my home as I was told recently.

Tint Connection in Costa Mesa, off the 55 freeway.
They've done about 6 cars for me with no bubbles, or peeling.

Unless you're keeping the car for 8+ years, it's not really worth that kind of money. As long as the shop has been around for a long time, they should honor the lifetime warranty most of these films carry.

I just called Premier and they told me they're going to open up a shop in the Los Angeles area early 2009 (Jan or Feb) but no exact date is confirmed.

I don't think I can wait either so going to try and make an appointment when they're down here next month.

I'd wait for Premier. Had them do my car a couple months back and they are very good at what they do. Prior to using them I also did a lot of research. Figured if I'm going to be spending money on this, might as well get the best.

Found them on all of the enthusiast sites and everyone's got nothin but excellent things to say bout them. Go with them if your schedule allows. Just looking at the gallery of cars they work on sold me.
