Hey guys...I have just recently completed some upgrades on my E46. I had the widnows tinted 32% with "Formula-1" tint. Also, I had the window tinted with 50% Formula with a slight mirror finish to reflect the sun. And...I purchased the german license plate. What do you think!? What else would look good?

I literally had the same tint job done today, I think its called 20%, its dark as hell and looks amaizng. However, I personally disagree with the "clears" thing. I think it makes the BMW look like a Japanese "ricer" as they say.

I agree that the clears (actually clear ones so you see the bulb) look out of place on a BMW. However, the opaque white ones look really nice. That's one thing I will be doing to my car as well after I buy winter tires.

OK...what do you guys think...I have found a place that sells chrome door handle covers and a piece of chrome for the rear trunk (above the license plate). I thought about adding those pieces...OR...having the chrome on my car now painted black (grill etc) and replacing the emblems with carbon fiber ones. Make the car completely black. Whats your opinion?

Where'd you get your license plate from? What about your tinting? I'm looking to do the same with my ZHP when it arrives in July.
