Recommendations on window tint installer? (South FL)

I’m looking for a professional tint shop in south Florida that has worked with the m5 before. I also have some questions about tinting the beast… Is there a tint currently on the m5? Can a metallic tint be used with all the electronics in the m5? Members can you please post some pictures of your tints. Sorry for all the questions… After spending 100k on the beast I want to do the job right. I’m currently thinking about getting a tint between 25% and 35%. Also, does anyone have any recommendations on a particular tint brand or percentage?

Edit: Any recommendations on a Huper-Optik installer in south Florida. Need to get these tints applied asap.

Do not get a metallic tint. It's a cop magnet. I had reflective mirror tint on my 1986 Grand National back in 86 or 87, and I was given 3 warnings in one day driving on NJTPK to and from 6-flags and NYC, and decided it's safer to drive it with windows down.... I had it on for only 6 days and had to have them changed.

plus metallic tint distorts the V1 inside, and cell phone reception, ex...
wouldn't recommend metallic.
I have 35% it's what's legal and it's the right level of tint for me at night. My other car has 25% back 15% fronts, and 50% windshield. to Dark at night. way to dark.

Get Huper Optik. It's a ceramic based tint so it won't interfere with radio signals and stuff. Plus it has better heat and UV rejection.

Just had the Huper-Optik done yesterday. I went with 50% tint all the way around (not windshield). Looks classy, not trashy. You will get good heat rejection without looking like a gangsta.

Will take some pics this weekend and post.

BTW I think the stock tint is 70%.

A Quality Custom Window Tntng
12390 Metro Pkwy # 3
Fort Myers, FL zip code

Phone: (239) 768-6933


I drove 30 extra miles becuase I saw the job they did on the M5 in the show room of an M5. SO, I TOOK MY M5 there and they had 5 people including the owner of 15 years doing my car in 45 min while I waited. They were like orchestrated ants! I but what the law required as well as the Ceramic based tint. Total was $220.00 because the Ceramic is a bit more.

These guys are so detailed. They had 1 hair or bubble on the back window and I had no idea, I watched him rip it off and start over! I was like what happened? "Had a bubble that wouldn't lay down". I will get any car tinted there. I will get pics on in the morning for you. THEY DO ALL THE BMW, MERC, and GERMAIN's Dealers cars!

From the pictures, this is the first E60M5 I've seen with chrome/silver trim around the window.

In the US, we get "shadowline" trim.
