Tinting advice...

Alright, well my friend is interested in tinting his windows on his E34 525i.

Question is, where is a good tinting company that provides good service and good deals? Also what sorts of warranties do they offer, any life time?

Please name a couple and approx. prices or exact would be even better, thanks everyone!

This isn't going to get you too much info, tinting wise. But i spoke to a family friend who's a cop and he says the following:

----------
The way they check to see if you've got it tinted too dark, is they ask you to put your licence on the inside and they try to read it from the outside. If they can read it from the outside, your ok. If not, you're nailed.. Keep that in mind..

M54TU Schnitzer -- your windows don't look tinted, did you tint another car? I want tint my windows too, but i've noticed alot of people have not tinted, even heavily modded cars . . . . I guess sometimes no tint looks good too

Its a matter of choice, I have a somewhat light tint, and I'm happy with it. But then again my car is pretty much stock.

Tinting makes stock rides like mine look much nicer than without tint. hehe

But as for heavily modified cars, it doesn't matter if you do or do not have it tinted. Either way it'll still look nice.

If you want cheap quality tint at an average price... go to Tint King. If you want high quality tint at a higher price... go to Ziebart.

If you want high quality tint at a reasonable price... go to Tint Master....
