I got metallic. The guy did caution that on some cars metallic tints can interfere with in-glass antennas so we tested it first by laying the tint on the outside of the glass and then tuning multiple stations on both the AM and FM bands. We had no problems at all, the guy said he does a lot of BMWs and he never has a problem with the newer ones, but it was the first F30 he had done.

The only problem we had was the roof brake light on the rear window - on E92s the guy says it can just be unclipped and dropped down but he couldn't get my brake light off the roof, so in the end he had to cut around it.

Overall I'm very happy with the job, and the price.
