Nope...just dark tint everywhere else and blackbinterior gives it that appearance.

No income tax, no front license requirement, better roads and weather, beaches...I think I live in the wrong state.

Let's not forget one of the worst public education systems in the nation. Ie; FCAT is the single dumbest idea I've ever heard of, piss-poor example of a standardized-test.

But, then again we have UF which has among the cheapest in-state tuitions
And I do love my school

Miami & South Beach do provide superfluous amounts of eye-candy though , just a bit too many BMWs around.

Looks awesome on red - don't see many E93s in that color. I'd also like to see pics with the top down and windows up. I haven't tinted mine yet because I'm not sure I'd like the way it looks.

From what I have heard there's a hard rubber seal inside the door that needs a moleskin or something to prevent the tint from scratching.

looks great! i've been wanting to get my done, but keep hearing about scratches due to the "felt" -- i guess the newer frames lack adequate "felt" so the tint gets scratched. supposedly a good tint shop will add the felt. did your guy have to add felt or was your window frame already ok? kash

Tint was the right choice. It looks fantastic.

His White Alpine would also look much better with tints. Perhaps you should suggest it to him...
