About Tint + radar detector

Hi, I want to get formula one tint on my m3, but I'm wondering if it will interfere with radar detector cuz I have one in my car already. Also, does it interfere with comfort access?

As long as it's not (certain) ceramic or metallic film, you shouldn't get any interference.

FormulaOne Pinnacle tint reportedly does not affect CA or a radar detector. There are other FormulaOne films that will affect them.

I talked with the FormulaOne people and the Pinnacle series should not interfere. I have it on my car and I know it works fine with other radio based signals (in my case the Comfort Access) and the previous tint that I had did not.

The tin foil around my head seems to be a little bit more in style than the tint I had in the car, so I didn't have a chance to check that out
