Hey thanks for the info.. I'm sure it looks extremely sexy on your car because of the dark interior.. The only thing holding me back from 35% is the light interior :/

jet black with beige interior...25% carbon rear, 35% front. Used to have 25% all around but got pulled over twice locally so decided to go a bit lighter so they "can see the driver's face". On my wife previous white E39, had 20% all around and it looked perfect with beige interior.

I got 25% percent all around. The only time I got pulled over is because I was speeding and then he asked about my tint. And since im in the medical field I had a friend of mine who is a ophthalmologist write me a note and recommend the tint on my window. I told the cop I have retinal blastomia and here is my doctors note. Didnt get a ticket for the tint but got one for speeding. Bastard!!
