Mein Auto: '12 550I GT/ '10 Golf TDI
In NJ not legal to tint front sides or windshield. For what it's worth, I did 20% metallic tint on rear sides and hatch. Ive already made 2 long trips with all night driving and no issues with interfence or reduced visibility during night driving. My GT is Black Sapphire/Cinnamon Brown.

The shop did a great job and the 20% looks perfect for me. I have the rear sunshades and when down combined with the tint it completely blocks out the sun. But I am a little bit disappointed by the amount of heat/sun that is still getting through the rear hatch. Heat reduction not privacy is my main concern as I carry my dog around back there and the hatch window generates a ton of heat.

I should of researched a bit more on brands, ceramic vs metallic, etc. to make a more informed decision as reduced sun/heat penetration was my main goal. But overall it is a major improvement.
