Not all E46 owners are fanatics. They're either successful single fathers or soccer moms, besides, theirs are most likely STOCK. I do seriously see a lot of modded E46s too, I guess they don't have time to chat on e46fanatics.

Is this meet going to be the same as the meet they are having on April 25th? http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=27496

If this is on the same day then im up for it, but if on different days then I will not be able to drive up to the Dallas area twice because I will either be comming from San Antonio, Houston, or Austin. I also have relavtives in the Plano area.

Yea, id say 99% of e46 owners couldnt tell you what BMW stood for, let alone care about a website about their car.

I got my tint for $160, they did an awesome job, except it has the dot matrix problem but u basically get that regardless. Its 20%, if u wanna know the name of the place IM or PM me or sumthing. Oh yea, its the same place Moritz BMW uses, so they do know what there doing.

I take my car to the shop as long as I'm under warranty. They've done brake work on my car twice since 30K miles. But, my maintenance warranty ends in 3,600 miles!! But, I have extended warranty to 100K, so it ain't too bad

i-20 and 360 checking in.

I had my windows tinted 20% with llumar at a tint shop on cooper 3 blocks north of Parks Mall. Haven't had any issues with bubbling, other than the matrix problem that everyone has.

the tint shop i took my car to before taking delivery of the car did a dot free tint...you can look at my rear windows and the tint is smooth and perfect against the glass instead of having the dot effect where the dot matrix is located
