When I said "mine had nothing in the rear" I meant hatch. Yes the rear passenger and driver side windows have power sun shades. They are awesome.

I have no idea for your situation but I have to believe the 3 GT just does't have the long legs for the road that the 5 GT has. 2016 may be the last 5 GT based on the 7 short so that might be the one...

In the 2014 there are not shades on the hatch. I can't speak for the later years but I'd doubt it. I went with 3M 70% tint and am happy.

The 5 series Gran Turismo is a fantastic road trip mobile

I gave it a whirl last summer with a paltry hop skip and jump to the Blue Ridge mountains and back. But I just returned from a very full 14 day road trip. This car is phenomenal. Beyond the smooth...

In FL you have to have a note from your doctor to tint the front and basically have a diagnosis of skin cancer to get the form.

Does your windshield tint affect clarity of the heads up display?

With a 550, you want to check if the vanos recall is needed. If I recall correctly, there are some rims available on the 550 not available on the 535. Probably other options on 550 not on 535.
