Window Tint

So it may be labeled privacy glass, although these X3's seem to come pretty clear as far as tint goes. What is everything thinking. Generally SUV's just don't look right w/ out tint. I'm thinking I'll be doing a normal tint on all the windows and maybe a slight tint on the driver and passenger windows... just curious as to what others are thinkin'.

ordered space gray for what its worth.

The privacy glass it pretty dark, but I think I'm going to get a tint too. We're not used to sun up here in Portland so when it comes out, we're totally blinded.

I mean, its pretty dark from the outside in or inside out? from the outside in, it doesn't really appear tinted, but maybe thats just the pics and I'll change my mind when the car is received.

Has anybody applied a medium tint to the privacy glass? Is the result a dark tint? I have the darkest possible on back side and rear on my 328 and medium on driver and front passenger.
Trying to go for same effect with the X3 by end of april.

Thanks
