E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

15% Tint

Got my 1er tinted today at an "open-minded" shop. 15% all around.

And what do you think of it? I am trying to decide if I want 15% or 20%. I have a Tacoma with 15%, but wouldn't want any darker. Do you have any trouble seeing out of it at night? Is it so dark it looks "forced" (for want of a better word.) By forced, I mean, sometimes I've seen cars with the tint is so dark it makes a loud statement. If you had to do it over again, would you stick to 15%?

I agree that I wouldn't want it any darker, but I am very happy with it. Good luck with your decision!
