Hello and a couple questions

Hi, just bought a second hand (5months old) AW/CR 125i for just over $50K and quite happy with the deal
2 weeks down the track and still enjoying every minute spent in the car. Apart from M sports pack its got no other options, but i really dont' feel like i'm missing anything.

I've put tint on it, formula1 from Solace tinting and there is a line around the rear side windows and the rear window where the dots are, where the tint does not stick. I'm not sure if thats normal, as the tint salesman told me, or whether that issue has a workaround. Can't find much just by googling on it. Can anyone suggest what i should do?

I'm also thinking about installing the performance parts' side accent strips on the car, mainly because i think it looks good. Has anyone seen them in real life? anyone can comment on how durable those vinyls are and whether its worth while sticking them on?

Cheers

G'day and welcome!

My tint doesn't stick completely to the dotted areas but it's not so noticable.

With regards the pin stripes....I have seen them and personally not that fussed. They look as though they're stuck on quite well but then I didn't try to peel them off at the dealership!

I reckon they look good, especially on an AW. Get the carbon mirrors and spoiler to set it off!!

I too have a slight problem with the tinting on the dots. Can't really see it till you get close though. I have seen pics of someone else's on here so i don't think it can be helped...
