This is off topic but any of you guys in IT? I have a client in Irvine that is looking for some consultants. These positions can range from a financial analyst to DBAs.

Let me know.

I have had Tint Plus in Laguna Hills do two of my cars with Formula 1 Pinnacle. They did a great job with the dot matrix.

Make sure you tint the front windshield. I got air80's on the windshield and is not dark. It further protects you from UV and reduces heat. I got mine done in the Newport area.

It's illegal in CA if you tint the entire windshield (they only allow 4" I believe). But for a nice car, I recommend you do it with 70% or so. Its light so it shouldn't be noticeable. But only do it for tint that block uv and help with heat reduction, etc. else it's not worth it.

+1 for Tint Plus. I also had the Pinnacle and it looks great. Compared to my buddy's E92 which is kinda ghetto-looking on the back window, done by some other tint shop. I'd recommend Tint Plus to anyone.

It's also the closest to Irvine of the shops mentioned in this thread.

Tint Plus has worked on my last 6 cars. I've done Formula 1 on all my cars (including my E90 M3) except my 911 which I did AirBlue on all windows (includnig the front windshield).

They aren't the cheapest but sometimes you get what you pay for. Their work is excellent, they stand behind their products and you don't have to worry about bubbling, peeling, or purple.

They have also tinted both my houses.

I did mine from DP Tint. And I do not recommend them at all. A lot of dust. Not do great quality workmanship. So took back and the owner/installer complained that I got discount and back to replace tint. I really didnt understand his logic:

Discount = shit job and no warranty work?

I still have some dust and blemish in tint but I'm just gonna live with it since I don't want to deal with the owner. Got 30 bucks discount wasn't worth it. Please avoid them.
