looks good.

excuse me for the ignorant tint question, why don't you want the tint to stick to the dots on the dot matrix?

do most people do the vinyl?

52 on the front!? Damn. That's gotta be so dark on the inside. Must say, it looks good on an AW M3 though.

Oh, now you've gotta follow through with the black-out routine. Matte black grilles, wheels, that whole thing.

Damn man! Nice tint and the dot matrix looks really good. Are there any places where the dot matrix doesn't look good in your opinion? If so post pics. If I want to get tint maybe I'll go where you went. How much did it run you?
