Found one online: Solar Tint in South Miami. Any good?

I'm thinking of doing Huper Optik Ceramic 30-35%. Any recommendations?

I want something more "grey" look than black.

Guys,

Solar Tints in South Miami. It's a reputable shop.

FYI if you have comfort access you need Ceramic, trust me when I say that.
I had 20% and had to have them remove my comfort access, Bluetooth, HD Radio was affected.

Also there is a 10% coupon discount online, you can either mention it when you go or print it.

Good Luck.

Let me know how they do on the dimples on the back windows and sides. I have not seen a good job yet on the 2 door m3. I've had my rear tinted now twice and I'm not trilled with the results. We put a vinyl sticker over the top dimples and tinted below it and that looks the best yet but the tinter messed up a little bit so I need to take it back.

I'm assuming you had 20% metallic and affected CA, right? Did you replace with ceramic? Any problems with CA?

Yes, the more carbon look. I hate the reflective cheap ones...

Yeah, had the 20% metallic, in addition to this they really didn't do the rear top correctly as they applied glue to fill in, didn't look so good, all this joke cost me close to $300, I decided just to leave stock.

Solar Tint does excellent work, but I don't like the color of the Huper Optik and they don't sell it at anything less than something in the 30% range. If that's what you're looking for, make sure you go on their website and print out the coupon to save some cash.

I went with 3M ColorStable. Got it at Senor Stereo on Bird Rd., I have had several cars tinted there and so have many of my friends, and they do good work as well. All computer-cut. Also less than $200, lol.

What percentage did you get? IS yours reflective? I want the carbon look which is non-reflective.

I got 20% and it's pretty flat black. I didn't like how gray / reflective the Huper Optik was at 30% (had it on my E46, done at Solar Tint - they did a great job on the install though)

I'm at Senor stereo right now doing mine, $180 cash for the 3M colorstable, not a bad price. What did they do for your rear glass at the top?

You mean the dot matrix right? They tinted over it, just needs a lot of time in the sun. Unless you want to do vinyl (I don't care that much) it's the same for everyone...

Got mine done, 35% all around. It came out very good. Got to wait for the rear to dry now and see how it'll look. The computer cut saves lots of time, they did mine in 35 mins. The quickest I've seen it.

Cool. I think you'll be happy with the 3M. I have no problems with my CA.

What agency ticketed you for tints? That's ridiculous.
