Huper Optik ceramic has two drawbacks. on the rear window you can get ghosting when the film is heatshrunk. it looks like wavy shapes in the tint. a good installer can minimize it, but its there. the other is the mirror like quality, makes the film look metallic.

i've had HO ceramic on my past four cars, went with formula one pinnacle as soon as my installer was authorized to carry it. very happy with the results.

the F30 shouldnt need moleskin. i've seen the gasket bmw is using, unlike the E90, there is no unfelted wiper on it. both are covered in felt from the factory, at least on my november build car.
