i know this has been posted before (or at least threads with similar topics) but ....

im thinking of getting my windows tinted and im just trying to get a better idea of what my car would look like with different % tint on it.

so if you guys with tinted windows could post pictures of your car and then tell me the tint you've got on it, i'd really really appreciate it! plus, its a chance to show off your cars. thanks!

The guy I bought my car from put 35% on and I dont like it. I plan on getting it taken off and putting up 20% all around.

can you post a picture?


right now i have none and i kinda like being able to see in and all

but the sun is killing me so really im just wanting to get enough tint to block a little sun. i'd just like to see how it'll look with the paint and rest of the car.

I think its something like 32% on sides and 27% on back I cant really remember Ill check my receipts tomorrow and edit this post. 20% looks the best but may be to dark for you.

This is 35% looks pretty dark on black/dark colored cars...I personally think that 20% on my car would look a lil bit silly. When the windows are up and roof is closed...you cant see into the car.

Personally, I've found that 20% tint is the best for beamers. Its not legal in all states, including the one I live in, but I think it is comparatively worth the risk. Go for 20% all around for the best look IMO. B)
