Tinting windows and back

I would like to get the windows and rear glass tinted per the legal limit. As windshield can't be tinted legally, I was wondering how the Z4 looks. I don't want the strip on windshield. Did anybody get their Z4 windows tinted and windshield not tinted ? Any pics will be appreciated.

Waited for the film to dry. Noticed several white spots and above all dust and solid glue particles between the glass and film. Got it redone without any success. So removing the tint tomorrow.

Hi had my windows done professionals. Love the look and the shade. Gives the inside of the car a bigger feel. I went to the dermatologist to right a scrip that I need to have the windows this dark for medical reasons. pre basil cell cancer. She was more then happy to comply. I put it in to a devision of DMV, waited 2 months and its street legal.

The person who worked on my car has around 17+ years experience. I was very impressed how he cut the film and applied. But when it dried I started seeing dust. Which brand film did you use ? Does rear view mirror auto dimming work ?

Hi again. I looked at a wall and said I want that to my tint guy. Yes all my Deming works. Note: I did not put anything on my side mirrors. Just all my windows, including part of my front window. The upper part of my front window about 4 inches, straight across. This is legal in CA.

After tinting and re-tinting, I de-tinted y'day. I noticed there are some white spots here and there that bugged me a lot. So got it de-tinted.

Sounds like you can write this off as a medical expense!
