BMW x5 tint

Hi,

Not sure if anyone here have tinted front windows to match the rear factory tint? Please post some pics and what film you have used and if you can recommend the shop that had done the work. I am looking to get my front windows tinted and would like to have a good match to a rear windows from factory.

Thanks again happy holidays

king, be careful with the front window tint. Most states have rules about how much of a tint can be applied. In CA for example you can only have a 30% tint, which is virtually the same as the OEM tint on the front windows -- so no point to doing anything more. The cops do not like tint because they can't see into the car.
