Hi! Where did you move from? Just want to make sure you know that tinted windows are illegal in PA. Regardless, many people still do it and many get away with it. Just don't go too dark. I haven't had mine tinted but I'm waiting for a response from someone who has, so I'll let you know where they went.

I think any qualified mechanic could put on the bike rack, or even a bike shop, but if you want someone who does work on MINIs check out http://www.mcbautospo...­ they're located in Bridgeville.

Thxs fir fast reply... I move from connecicut. I did not kow it's illegal here, I just wan a light tint then..hehe...I did a search on google and there few places that pop up but not sure if good or not

I had my last car, a Volvo tinted at Solar Control Window Tinting in Monroeville, they are on Old William Penn Highway. They did a great job and will be upfront on how dark to go to avoid getting hassled. I never had a problem with with authorities or when getting it inspected. I forget what the number of tint it was but it was dark enough to keep the inside cool and to look really good on a white car, but it wasn't limosine opaque tint either.

I plan to have my mini tinted, but just haven't got around to it yet.
