Does non-ceramic tint affect radio/bluetooth?

I know the pros and cons of ceramic tint, but i was wondering if non-ceramic tint affect reception? It did in my previous car, but my last car didnt have a shark fin. Thanks!

Yes it does, especially if you have Comfort Access.

I have ceramic tint, and both CA and AM reception continue to be crap, so I wouldn't worry about it . Local dealer always use regular tint, and they say never a complaint for worse reception. If your car is going to be exposed to the elements most of the time, you'd be better off with the ceramic kind. The ceramic also rejects heat a bit better, and you're talking about an M3, so I'd install that one. Not much more expensive anyway. Good luck.

It's not non-ceramic it is the metallic tint that will mess with that stuff. Not all non-ceramic tint is metallic so be careful when shopping brands of tint.
