The darker you go the better it will look. The guy I bought my car from put 18% on rear windows, back, and front strip and 28% on door windows. But its old and has some small chips and bubbles so Im going to get it taken off and do it all 10%.
In my state it is illegal to have any tint on the front windows. I went with 20% all around because I felt I could get away with -- and I do. The night visibility of 20% is not that much different than stock.
Umnitza now provides a mechanic to install all parts ordered right in the box! It's their new "Total customer service program" that will eliminate all the haters and keep incompetents from breaking shit and blaming the vendor! When you are all set simply call INS and they will pick him up free of charge.

from $30 DIY.....(please don't DIY!)
to $200 to $500 professionally done.
Delmarco is right, the DIY can be extremely hard. I've seen plenty of tint jobs that are shitty because the person who applied it did a bad job. Search around for the best job and go with them no matter the cost. Personally I ended up paying 200$ for a top notch job.
The DIY is ridiculously hard on BMW's and in general, non-suv vehicles. We've DIY's it on a explorer and it was easy cheezy. Then ewe almost did a e46 and realize its very difficult to do the rear windows. $200-250 seems right. Get hookups and find it for like 150. The tint on the rear window MAY interfere with your AM transmitter. In order to rectify this you need to get a specific type of tint that is made of some different metals. Its a bit more costly.
I dont like it when people put differnt types of tint on. I say keep the same percentage all around.
