I did mine. Love it. It's black on black and I did 20% charcoal ceramic tint all around. Looks amazing.

I wrestled with this idea at one point but then decided against it since I love having my top down too much. If I was in Texas, Florida or any of these mostly summer and hot states, I would consider it for sure because it do help with the sun rays. Do it if you like it.

Taking mine tomorrow for tint. Looking forward to it.

I'm opting out for now, saw the silver one with tints on the thread link and looks a little too suspicious, as if though I'm trying to hide something. Either my good looks or my beer!

Tinted due to hot GA sun...

I'm not a huge fan of silver with dark tints. I live tints on black and white rides.

I had pretty dark tint on mine, and it was the same color as yours. I would 100% advise to do the same. It looks awesome, and it keeps the interior cooler (temperature-wise).

18 in the back, 35 on the sides...lovin' it!

I have the legal limit on my tint so 30%, wouldn't have it any other way. One of the first things I did to this car. Them sun-rays beat down on you here! Not to mention it looks great.

Tint it up IMO.

I don't like really dark tints so I always go with 50% on my Bimmers...Blocks out just enough sun without being too dark to where you cannot be seen.

You don't have to go very dark, I got mine legal in the front (30%) & 5% in the back. But that's just my preference. I'd say at least 50% all around just to keep the sun out, but 30% doesn't look bad either.

Sounds like you want to be seen.... :p

FWIW ; Tint it up,

30% Rear, 50% front & windshield.
