Thanks for the pic..

Hmm to me it doesnt look dark at all, even with black interior. Maybe at night but during the day it's perfect IMO...

I never got pulled over with 40% Huper Optik on the e46, but Huper is much lighter than other tint, it's probably like a 50% normal film.

The cop that pulled me over in Walnut Creek at 1:30 AM on a Thursday evening said cops typically let 35% + slide. I had 15% he didn't let it slide, but ironically he said the tint looks good. Got the fix-it-ticket signed off by cop friend and paid the 10$ fine. Have not been pulled over since October 2008.

15% all-around.

Lucky you. I got pulled over twice in two weeks for 35% on the new car, which is why I'm redoing it at 50%. Fukkin' Cupertino cops...

he can't pull you over for simply driving with the windows down. make sure there's no other reason for him to pull you over.

AND WEAR A SWEATSHIRT!

Okay guys, all the deposits have been submitted to Rocky Mountain Tint.

The amount due when you bring your cars in: (FormulaOne Pinnicle Ceramic)

New Tint job = $305 - $50 = $255
Removal of old tint + new tint job = $420 - $50 = $370

Feel free to call them anytime to schedule your appointment. Just pay the remaining amount.


Aleks and Andy, you guys can give me the deposit amount the next time we meet.


Thanks everyone for making this a successful Group Buy!!!
