Tint job at Premier - Diamond Cut IR

I had my tints done at Premier in the OC, and took some before/after shots. I opted for the 32% shade on all windows, except for the windshield, which had the 73% shade applied. They do great work and certainly have the reputation to back it up

Looks great! I like how subtle it looks and how it enhances your M3.

Thanks. No bubbles, the results are as good as one could hope for.

Diamond Cut Tint lower the temperature inside very well, and together with Awesome Subtle Look. There is also Premier Location in Bay Area (Fremont) if you guys interested. They do the best work period. =)

Heat rejection is supposedly the best, I'll find out once summer arrives. This is my only experience with Premier, so I may not have the most valid opinion out there. Their rep speaks for itself, though. When my car was the shittiest car in the shop that day (CLK 63 Black series and a Panamera Turbo), you come to realize that they don't mess around.

Good people, got a custom wrap (fenders, hood bumper) from them. Wrap paid for itself, simply by giving me a peace of mind.

Did you have to apply any kind of felt protection against scratching the tints during simple normal use?

Looks very nice, trying to find the best place to tint my car the moment it arrives.

Do you guys think I should go with Diamond Cut IR like the OP (I'm Space Grey / Black) or something different like Huper Optik?

Yeah, their clear bra service is supposedly second to none.

Not sure what you mean by normal use.

The heat rejection is really good, I'll have to test it out when it gets really hot.

Both the Diamond Cut and the Huper Optik are excellent routes to go. Can't go wrong with either.

The whole car was around 800 with tax. The OC Premier location is in Orange, CA near Anaheim.

Jesus man, I remember when I paid $200 for tints on my 550i and thought that was too much.

IMHO, $800 for tints is a waste of money. I can't even believe that!

awesome max! I saw and met you at Bimmerfest this weekend. Can't believe you did the windshield. Looks really cool. I might have to get that done as well with Premier.

I can't recommend Premier enough. Flawless install obviously, but always willing to answer all questions after installation and help with any maintenance issues if any occur. I got my whole front quarter wrapped and the IR tint all around except for the windshield. My M3 was one of their display vehicles at bimmerfest. No association, just happy customer.

OP, love your tint choice. I wish I went a little darker, but didn't want the hassle of getting pulled over. If I could do it over, I would def go darker.
