No problem I was a new to it before this great forum and people willing to share info. I went with the legal 35% because I was told it would look dark regardless with black on black. I regret it tho I wish I went with 20% if not at least on all rear windows but I guess I don't have to worry about getting pulled over by police or passing a state inspection.

also the tpms you have, is it wireless for the 2008 bmw 535xi because oemwheelsplus are going to install them and mount/balance the tires for me. They said all i have to do is take it to a garage shop and have them change the wheels. Is it true are the tmps wirless or do i have to connect something? Also how do you know which rear tpms goes on the left of right rear of the car when i get them or does it even matter which one goes where? please reply thanks

They are wireless sensors, no programming. All you need to do is reset your TPM, there is a setting for it in your heads up display under tires. You have to reset while your stopped and then just drive. Of course after you set the psi to your desired level. The computer automatically knows which one is where. Just make sure your tire with the biggest offset of 9.5 are the rear tires but any time shop should know this.
