I would do it on my car, maybe 70% front and 50% all around however it cost double the amount of regular tint.

I guess you can't go wrong either either choice, just tossing it out there that there's another product besides Huper.
I'm actually leaning toward using the SunTek Carbon XP 80 on the windshield, which has 44% heat rejection in an 80% VLT film! For comparison, Huper Optik 60 has 43% heat rejection and Huper Optik 50 has 50% heat rejection, but they are much darker.

Well I didn't know it was your BD when I called so.....happy belated BD and congrats on COTM, well deserved brother!!!

And how utterly tasteful that you own shoes to match Probably put you over the top as far as the votes went.

The piano black is TOTALLY AMAZING... I am drooling at the pics of your interior.

Looking at getting my ZCP wheels powdercoated satin black too, to match the GTS style wheels. Gotta find somewhere in VA that will do a good job though before I make any comittment. Too bad I don't live in Cal and can bring them to EAS to have them done

Absolutely love this car, congrats on COTM!

Thanks everyone for the kind words re: COTM. I had no idea that was coming. Especially since I have so many other mods planned for the car which I have yet to install. I haven't even had this car for two months now. There's definitely more coming guys.

Maybe Car of the Year? Fingers crossed

love threads like these. You've got good taste and the "Bee" theme is pretty good too. Black wheels in my opinion look best on cars like red or yellow (silver may be). Never liked the blacked out theme. I think it's very good you matched the shadow line and grilles with rims, and followed up with Piano black trim. It looks just "right". May be not for everyone (yellow cars aren't) but I think it's so well put together that you really can't go wrong. If you get that M3 kevlar bumper that was mentioned it would really look great (the one that was on the blue akropovic M3 featured here earlier that basically looks like the more agressive OEM version - but not like that Amuze Ericsson thing which is horrible imho).
