Colorado Springs

Does anyone have any recommendations for a 3M Clear Bra and Window Tinting shop in the Springs? I have a 335i that will be delivered soon and I would like to have a good idea of a place to take it for some quality work. Thanks for any help.

I'm in Colorado Springs as well and tentatively planning on getting a clear bra put on by this shop:

http://www.actionlineclearbra.com/

I've never gotten a clear bra on a car before, but based on the website it would seem they know what they're doing. I got a price quote for a custom cut clear bra and it seemed fair.

So do you fly an AH-64D? If so, that looks pretty intense!

What parts of the car are you getting done? I was thinking front bumper and 12" of hood.

Did you even look at going through Winslow? I know they don't do the work in-house, but I didn't know if there were any benefits of having the dealer do it.

And yeah, an Apache is the only thing I am driving these days. Just a few more months and I will be back in the Springs though. I have asked for a January delivery, but based on the production tracker it looks like my car has left the plant and is on the way to port already.

I'm getting the front bumper, mirror caps, and probably 12" or 18" of the hood.

I decided against getting it done at the dealership, because I didn't want it to delay my delivery at all, and more importantly I think they use pre-cut ones, which won't fit quite as precisely as a custom cut like what action line does.

Well thank you for your service! That's going to be torture having the car sitting there for months before you get back.

Go with RMwindow tint in motor city. They have a great reputation and are reasonably priced.
