It's your choice..If u feel your BMW is good with tints then go for it. Your BMW will look better with tints i guess...

ive got a red 87 325 i got tinted at the beginning of september,
i hate my tan interior tho, so im switching it to one from a black interior car,
the tan makes my 20% tint look lighter than it is.
heres a few pics tho, these are taken with my cam phone so they arent the best quality.

maybe this gives you an idea?

I put 5 percent tint on my other car, all around. Got pulled over, cop measured 3.5 percent Legal in my state is 43 percent LOL
If ya do it yourself its really not that hard, My other car has an extremely curved hatch, made it a PAIN IN THE ASS, but these have pretty flat windows. just heat shrink it to the outside of the back window so that when you put it inside, it conforms to the curvature.

My rear windows are tinted, and i think it looks real good liek this, and the front windows have some sort of very slight slight slight slight, and i mean slight tint to them, its liek they just have some sort of extra protectant layer, but i think it looks good.

youll find by just tinting the rear windows and rear window taht it will give the effect of your front windows being slightly tinted also, i think it looks better then having them all tinted, but thats me.
