    Huper Optiks Window Tinting

    I bought a 2011 335i a few weeks ago and put the Huper Optiks window tinting on it. I believe they put the 35% version on my car. It did not adversely affect the radio reception and it seems to be pretty good. It is a little pricey but, so far, it seems to be worth it.

    Sorry. I do not have pic's of the car.

    I have not noticed any issues with the key fob reception. I haven't paid particular attention to it, but I haven't noticed any difference. I guess that that is a good thing.

    yes it is but it's worth noting. Recent tint on

    my E92 335 cut the response distance down to nearly zero.

    I do not remember exactly what it cost, but I believe it was around $350 for the four side windows and the back window.

    Re: Huper Optiks Window Tinting

    I have an update on the tinting that you may want to consider before putting tinting on your car. After having had the tinting for over a month, I finally rolled down the windows (first decent day in Dallas). I noticed that I had small scratches that extended from the top of my of two of my windows to the bottom of those windows. When I called the service advisor at my dealership he told me that BMW does not recommend putting tinting on the car and that any issues would be on my nickel. I complained about this and they said that they would look into it for free this one time. I guess that the seals on the window are quite tight and they can collect particulates. These particulates can scratch the tinting. I believe that they will replace the seals (this one time) for free. However, I have to pay to have the windows retinted.

    Please keep this in mind if you are getting window tinting.
