I just replied to a couple more PMs. I called him and gave him a heads up that a bunch of you guys will be calling. He's ready for you.

Yup. He did my IS with no issues what so ever. I was a bit worried at first. As there is a lot of complaining about a lot of issues with tinting a 2IS. But I was very very pleased. My car looks sick with the tint. I ended up going with 20% all around and don't regret it one bit. I was about to do 35, but am so glad I didn't. Not to mention the price was incredible.

The fact that a BMW 745 IL was going before mine did help to ease some of the initial anxiety.

George's hookup is awesome.

Edit - I should also add that I was also worried that I did my tint job in the middle of winter when it was freezing cold outside. I was worried the tint wouldn't cure correctly. I also had some bubbles that were in the tint, but Ceasar assured me they would go away within a week, and sure enough they did. I am very particular about detail and quality. In all of the cars I've tinted, this came out as one of the best.

All PMs replied.

For the record guys - he charges about $140 for a full tint job (which is prob the best deal you will find for the quality job he does). Please don't low-ball offer him, or i will not give the info out unless i personally know you. I haven't had any issues with our CL guys yet, but I just want to avoid any issues down the line.

George

No advance time needed. I called him at 10 AM and dropped the car off at 12.
