Request: Good pictures of tinted windows ( preferably black )

I really want some good pictures and opinions from people who own black are jerez black m3's on what percent tint they did and what they think is the best. I don't want it completely black but I don't want it to light

Thanks,
Michael

This thread has 35% F1 Pinnacle Tint. I also have 35% tint all around. 18% was too dark for me. I guess everyone is different.

Very... that is the reason I ordered Jerez. Nicely different, but still classy and mean looking.

I have the same color combination with you (JzB/Fox Red) and I went 40%. IMO its a bit on the light side as the red really shines thru on bright days. If I could do it over, I would go a bit darker.
