Sorry about blurry pics - Needed to use night mode or the flash masked the problem...

This happens on all bmws....everyone ive owned had the same issue. My tint guy usually has me bring it back a few weeks later so he can squeegee out the top the best he can...it will never be perfect though.

Just had my previous tint replaced with the FormulaOne Pinnacle 35. Looks great, and no issues with any of the electronics (like comfort access). They also had great customer service and helped me research if there would be any issues with the CA.

I recommend it.

Sorry for taking so long to post this.. here is how my tint turned out on the back window.. I messed with it a little while it was drying... It's not noticible from far away.. I think it came out good.

To Mantis, Rickc and LittleRocket,

Could you gentlemen tell me how much you paid for the tint job?

Also, are there any hazy areas on the rear windshield's dot matrix strip?

on me and my sisters' acuras, we all got tints done by TintPlus 10 years ago, but there were patches of hazy spots on dot matrix area (not a lot, but still caught my attention, but I never bothered to ask TintPlus to fix them either).

Thanks

looking at Tint Plus' website, every type of Formula One films all have 99% sun protection rating.

which company of the regular (non-ceramic) tint will work with the CA. My budget is too low for the double priced ceramic tints

has anyone received a FIX-IT-TICKET yet? I have the 15% F1 Pinnacle Tint on all windows. COP said i had to get it fixed. said that the 35% should be fine. What do you guys think about 35% fronts and 15% back and back sides? Pictures please if you did this.
