    Cool Window tinting!

    Hello gearheads and bimmer dreamers I needed to have my windshield replaced because some clown threw a beer bottle off an over-pass one evening while I driving home from Kent Island on Highway 50. Any-who, I need to have my new windshield tinted to the Maryland standard, therefore if anyone knows where in or around Howard County I can accomplish this task I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance. Happy Motoring...

    Don't know any place in Columbia, but me and several e90 guys went to Driven Dynamics in Rockville to get tint work. Here's a link to get a real good deal on their gift certificate (actually there are a bunch of really good deals on this link).

    Yes, I used them to tint my e92 and its not the easiest back window to tint b/c of the dots at the top. The tint film just doesnt adhere well to the window/dots and they were finally able to come up with a solution that looked good.

    I recommend the 3M carbon tint they use and with the price of gift certificate, you can't beat it.

    What was the solution to the dots? I got a tint at DD last month and the tint near the dots is not adhereing at all.

    I don't know if Art did it or not. A thin European guy tinted my car. I don't know if I really want to go back there again, ya know? I suppose I could call them.

    side parking lot is where the Tint shop is. I've had several cars done by them. Very professional, excellent work that they stand behind.
