Tints on 08 M5, is tinting windshield ok?
Hi everyone, I have just bought a 2008 M5 and want to put window tints, is it ok to tint the windshield, my concern is the headlight and windshield wiper sensors.

depending on the local laws tinting the windshield is not legal. might want to check that first.

Windows are now tinted!
Windows are now tinted, windshield 55% and the rest 25%, and yes it is against the law in Florida thats why I went light on the front and dark on the rest.
The tints are carbon based and the windshield tint does not interrupt any sensors, also guaranteed for life.
I am pleased, it looks like a different car :)

The tint goes around the sensor. They will lay the tint on the outside and cut where they need to then peel off the plastic to expose the glue. So your sensors should be fine when it comes to the wipers. As far as the headlights that's a different story but you should be fine as well.
