if you're gonna do the same % all the way around....get 35%. 20 is too dark for the front and 50 is too light for the back.

Yeah that was what i was thinking.. i didn't want to mix and match the tint cause two different colors on the doors would look funny to me as i had that on my old car but what do i know it may look pimp. I was just trying to get some input before i did it.

Is there any in between 35% and 20%? I would go with 35% if not depending on your interior.

I have 20% all the way around. I'd like to do my windshield as well but don't want it 20%, I'm thinking 50% if I can find it in the same film. The place I went to sells it in 35%, I may be stuck doing that.

Does anybody have 35% on the windshield? If so, what are your opinions during the night or rain driving?

i have 35% on my car and i think it looks great. however, i've had 20% or 15% on every car i've ever had. i was so used to that, that the 35's felt too light at first. i do wish they had something inbetween 20 and 35 over here. i hate the sun so alittle bit darker would've been perfect for me. thank god i'm italian and columbian and have a tan all year round or else i'd be pale as wonder bread. :D if you want tint for looks, i'd go w/ 35%. if you don't like being in the sun, i'd have to say 20%. remember though, if your interior is light, your tints will look alot lighter during the day.

I'm a big fan of a very light tint. Personally, I'd go with 50.

I've got 13% all around on my 330 and I find it to be perfect for Florida. I saw a siver M3 with 20% all around and 50 on the windshield and it looked super nice.

PIctures of tine

Ok thanks for all the input, my car is black with tan leather interior, anyone have pictures by any chance of the differnet % OF tint? I think the 20% on the back and back doors and then 35% on the front roll ups. I've had tint on all my old cars ranging from limo to 40% and can't decide on what to get on the beemer. I'm mainly doing it for looks. Thanks for all the input
