Wildcat, can you take pics with the 40% tints on your car if you go with them? I'm undecided between 35 and 40.
Thanks.

Here is Formula One Pinnacle 50f/35r in sunlight if anyone cares. I have 3M 35f/20r on my E46 and the rear is too dark at night.

I looked at 35%. If I were a bit younger I'd go that route but my 17 year old says her dad would look "sketchy" with a darker tint.

Thanks.
Got 40% solar gard premium from eclipse in Cincy last night. Perfect for what I was looking for. Trying to post pics from my phone on way to airport. May not work but here goes. Tint look darker in pics with sun behind me vs the other side of the car.

Keep it like that! My Jet Black which was Paint Corrected, now after about 4 self washes already (to be fair, my first wash used an improper technique which I learned from and corrected after) is starting to show swirls under LED lighting. Good thing is that my paint is so well protected and wax'd, etc. that you really don't notice them unless under straight BRIGHT lighting, and even then they don't bother me much helped by how the paints "pop" overpowers them. I'm still learning new things every wash. For example, I noticed that even though I have a ton of the same type of MF (plush) towels, a certain "batch" I got was rougher than the initial one I got. Unfortunately I partially used the comparatively "rougher" batch last wash. Not sure if it did any wrong to the paint (hopefully not), but I now learned to not only be picky about what MF's you BUY, but as you USE them, compare them to each other (talking about even if you're using the "exact same" MF towels) when you pull them out, and make sure that your using the softest feeling ones you have.

Washing technique toward the MF towels also obviously makes a difference. Oh, and wiping in straight lines REALLY helps minimize the noticeable'ness of swirls as if they go in one direction, they won't catch light as easily. Easier said than done, but if you at least put attention into it, you'll at least minimize alternate directions.

Some mods..

Ok, so I'm posting a few pics pre-detailing because I wanted to thank Lee for not only doing a great job of tinting my ride, but also swapping out the side markers and fog lights. The dude is awesome, I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to do any of the above. I have not washed the car because I'm getting it detailed this week so try to ignore how dirty it looks lol..
