Over in Whirlpool, there are many threads about good tint shops. Here are a few for you to see if they do 3M:

When you find a good one, please let me know. My car is still too hot inside. I know it's sunny today, but at 20 degrees or so, it shouldn't be this hot.

Try this guy:

not 3M but he does non-metallic films which is probably more ideal for BMWs

Thanks for all the responses..I guess my only worry if that I find a tint shop that has not worked with luxury cars before they will damage the vehicle or remove the door panels to do the tint

I can vouch for Peter @ tint a car in North Melbourne, although I'm not sure if they offer 3M.
He's done quite a few F30s and no issues with mine.

Tinting

Yes - I just picked up a BMW 328 M Sport in Estoril Blue today from Doncaster BMW. Really happy with the drive and comfort. Options I added were:
- M sport brakes
- Reverse camera
- Front heated seats
- Sunroof
- Bi-xenon lights
- Extended Bluetooth
- DAB

Now looking for a good tint place. Worried about them doing any damage to the interior. Any other suggestions besides Nth Melb tint-a-car?

been using these guys for years

http://www.tinturride.com.au/address_11.html

I did mine for $200, and they use quality film, and offer lifetime warranty.
Everywhere else try to rip you off as soon as you say you mention BMW.

No good there. He's got a crook neck and can't do F30's as the rear window is too hard for him to get to.

Same site I found last night. Looks like 3 brothers or father & sons run it:

http://ultrashadetint.com.au/contact-us/

I'm calling them today. Looks like they use the very best tint products too:

Ya i heard very good stuff about suntek.. For u guys who got tints.. did u guys tint the front and rear windscreen as I'm thinking of going 80% all round.

Does it effect the HUD?

suntek is what the dealers use.

Pretty sure its illegal to tint your front windscreen, so sides and back only. 80% sounds pretty light!
