Question Tinted Tail Light Question

I have an alpine white 135i w/matte black 19" csl's and im considering tinting the tails...

I dont want any crappy ones from ebay that will peal off or bubble or anything stupid like that. I want it to look as clean as possible and to stay on there with no problems, i dont care how much it costs... Are there any good quality ones out there for the 1-series? and where can i find them?

thanks

my local tint shop said he could do it. He has a more durable material for it though. Why don't you ask yours? They also do the computer cut 3m products too.

took mine to my local tint shop that did the car tint and he took care of it, the tint that goes on the tail lights is much thicker. very happy with mine.

Sorry to thread jack but I had to comment on this AW 1er. Stunning from this viewpoint. I flip flop b/w colors all day but this photo made me think of the potential of an AW 1er. Good stuff.
