Are we really supposed to be able to tell what it looks like by that huge close-up? It shows us nothing...

It does actually shows you why this tint is so easy to work with, no airbubbles with all theese holes.. Seems like the pictures I meant to show you didnt really work, heres a link to the album..

Tint is slightly too dark for my liking. Also, if you can see the holes up close that would really annoy me. However, I do like the idea of tiny holes because that would make it so much easier to apply and you wont have air bubble problems.

Any other plans for the car?

Would look even better on a darker color car.
thanks for the other pictures as now I know what it looks like.

On the 335, everyone switches to the blacklites or tints their lights.
Haven't seen much movement that way on the M3.....

A little too dark for me too. If there was a way to make it lighter that be great, but I suppose the holes would need to be bigger and then they'd be more visible. Cool idea though.

To make it lighter the holes can still remain small but the material should be more transparent.

I agree that when the lights are turned of it is a bit too dark for my liking aswell, but im really loving it when they're on. Yes, the theme of this car will be SSII and matte black. Indicator chrome will become matte black and so will the grilles. I will also get a catless exhaust system with x pipe and a bit bigger and black tips. I have a K&N air filter in it now and I will have it tuned with some software, after that Im done. Perhaps I'll get the zcp splitters but thats it.
