The group buy price is no longer available. However, let me check with doba_s about his order and if he cancels, you can take his spot.

Cool, much appreciated! I sent an email off to Rocky Mount also to see what they'll do on price. Thanks for helping out!

im not sure about omega but rocky mountain does use vinyl, their reason being sanding down the dot matrix will leave tiny scratches in the glass and leads to more problems in the future.

They did a really good job on my car i will post pics later. Also they use f1 pinnicle and omega does not.

Omega doesn't use vinyl and he doesn't do any sending or anything like that ... Just the film ... Their film is made by the same company as F1 and it is exactly the same film just a different name ... Omega and Rocky M are very close to each other and can be distributors of the same " F1 " film ... I am still not sure which place should I go to ...

Here are the pictures of my tint job at Rocky Mountain. As you can see, the dot matrix around the windows are well baked into the windshield. If you notice on the last pic, it's not easy to work on cars that have very lil space between the dot matrix and the rear dash. They have worked on many ///M cars and have good experience.

Front windows' dot matrix:



Rear Windshield Dot Matrix:

Aleks, please pick your choice because the deposit amount that I placed for you is not refundable. Sorry I thought you were 100% in for the group buy so I paid the deposit amount for you without letting you know 1st.

If you decide to go with Omega, please let me know so someone can take your spot.

great service!

Thanks again for arranging the group buy. I went last week to get the car tinted--I must say that Matt did an amazing job.

He's a real professional--takes the time to explain darkness levels, shows you pictures and really makes sure you know what you're getting into. He's also great at explaining the tint laws and ramifications of getting a ticket.

Overall process takes a few hours and they have wi-fi at the shop so you can work while you wait! He wasn't satisfied with the back window so he redid it--that impressed me.

No hesitations recommending Rocky Mountain. If I get some time, I'll post up pics. I got 35% all around on my 330i.

Cheers,
Krish

i'm kinda leaning towards omega since they don't use a vinyl, i think i'd rather deal with some of the tint looking a tad off and not having a tunnel vision effect
