I am getting my windows tinted soon, should I get black or mirror tint??? I want to do sorta what GD wants to do, black everything :P but i saw a black car yesterday with mirrored tint and i thought it looked awesome. What do you guys think?
i think cam540's 97 m3 (he is the guy with the silver m3 right? lol) has "limo" tint...it looks really cool B) B) he said it was illegal

and yeah, those do it yourself kits are horrble for windows...i have seen many a car in baltimore (and iowa also for that matter) with purple back windows with huge bubbles.....eww....

i wouldn't want to know how that tint would hold up with the light bulb heat....but i guess it could be done if you make sure it is sealed really nicely

I think the 'best' or 'only' way to remove tint is with an S.O.S type pad and rub the f'er off. But I may be wrong.
Thank GD. That sounds like a big job, especially for the back window, which has those fragile defrost threadamajigs.

I'm also guessing an S.O.S. would scratch the glass...

It probably would somewhat scratch the glass. However, before I bought my car they used something like that (I stil have metal fibers in the car that I can&#39;t get out) and the glass is ok. As for the drfroster lines, JCWhitney sells a kit that you can use to put them back on. So far it seems mine are okay so I haven&#39;t gone out to get it, but I have to guess that it works ok.

another option would be a razor blade. like the kind used in box cutters that has a flat edge. you can then apply alcohol to get rid of the sticky adhesive mess afterwards
