Mein Auto: '10 535i GT
Tint - FormulaOne Pinnacle and Llumar Air Blue 80

Hey Gents,

I am having the GT tinted up on Friday. I'll post up the before after pictures soon.

Windshield - FormulaOne/Llumar Air Blue 80
Side Windows - FormulaOne Pinnacle 30%
Rear Window - 30% or 15%

I would like to go with the darker option (15%) on the back window but I am a bit nervous about night visibility out the back when in dark places like an unlit parking lot. I'll probably end up with the 30%. Any opinions?

FYI, these side and rear window percentages are all legal in my state. Technically, a clear film for the windshield is now legal in Texas, although the Air Blue 80% isn't exactly "clear," hence the name "80." That is an iffy call but that has resulted in some hassling of my installers customers but nothing that hasn't been cleared up after a little headache.
