Anyone got their E90 tinted?

I want to know which tint will look good on e90 Titanium silver.

Any pictures? If not E46 with silver will help too....

What do you guys think about mirror tint on titanium silver?

It is going to be 50% in front and 35% in rear so it will not be totally mirror like...

Is it a bad choice? Should I go for conventional black tint? Need help, Please...

I would personally go with a black tint. It looks MUCH better on a silver car. The mirror tint looks cheap and like you're trying to be cool. BLACK TINT>>>> trust me.......

I feel that the lighter the car color the darker the tint. I would do 20% on rear and 35% on front. 50% is not much of a tint. Of course, I am not familiar with the Virginia laws but in NY I have never been stopped for my darker tint.

Black tint, but keep it at the same percentage all around. Don't do 20 in the back and 35 in the front.

Will is right, uneven tint looks hobby-shop. Go with 50% all around if it's the darkest you can do legally, super dark tint is totally 80's anyway.
