    Got a bad tint job. Not sure what I should do.

    Had my new M3 tinted last week. I picked it up when it was still drying so didn't think much of it. This is the first time I got a car tinted, so from the outside things looked good. The next day, I started noticing bubbles, this wrinkle in the back, the alignment issue, and even a scratch on...

    PPF/Ceramic Coating and Outdoor Car Cover

    With my MYP hopefully arriving in the next 2 weeks, I've already scheduled Xpel PPF on the whole car with Ceramic Coating inside and out (including suspension). Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of having a covered parking/garage where I live. For those of you with knowledge on the...

    Rear glass cracked is tint a possible cause?

    I noticed my rear glass cracked months after I had my M3 tinted. I am certain it was not an accident from the tint shop since I inspected their job right after the tint was placed. Is this normal? I am getting my car serviced, should I remove the tint before going in so they won't blame it on that?

    Tinting help with battery life?

    Does tinting really help with saving battery life so my m3 sr+ doesn’t have to cool itself down as often? Anyone who didn’t do tinting, do you feel like you’re baking inside? If this is more a cosmetic fix than practical, I want to save my money.

    stock model Y rear window tint on the outside?

    I appear to have a tear on my Model Y rear window tint. Isn't window tint normally put on the *INSIDE* of the window? I feel the tint hole on the outside. (This is stock Model Y tint.. not aftermarket). Anyone else notice this? I assume it will be considered a user problem, not covered by...

    MY window tinting

    Took my MY in to get tinted. They pointed out that the passenger and rear doors have almost no gap whatsoever between the glass and interior material of the doors. They said it will most likely damage the tint because of this. Makes me wonder if that’s the reason why Tesla pre-tints the MY...

    Having a difficult time choosing: Stek Nexseries vs. 3M Crystalline Tint?

    Hi, After owning my M3 for a few months I want to add a tint. Tint will include a clear front and tints on the sides and roof. After doing a lot of research I have settled on a Ceramic tint due to the heat rejection and non interference with radio waves. I originally thought that the 3M...

    Major problem created when tinting front windows of M3 w/ white interior

    I don't know if this reflection problem (see picture) is just for certain brands of tint or certain intensities (mine is dark), but as you can see, the white interior casts a major reflection on the driver's (and passenger's) side rear view mirrors when it's sunny. I really like the white...
