Pick whatever tint percentage you like the best.

I would just just recommend that you consider Formula 1 brand window tints.

This is a top-tier automotive window film. You'll be happy that you did...

not sure what i like that why i'm trying to get others opinions. i normally black out my cars with 20% but this car might look better different in jerez...so not sure.


does pinnacle formula 1 tint have a different hue to it or look different for any reason or its just higher quality that wont fade?

Get Formula1 Pinnacle 35 on all four side windows and 20% on the back window. It will look good, reject heat really well, won't fade, and won't interfere with your electronics.

Not Jerez, but here is 35% 3M on my Jet Black E90. Also be aware of the risk of scratched tint on the E90. My has gotten badly scratched as a result of the hard trim piece that sits below the window seal. See the thread below for more details:

I have 35% pinnacles on Jerez e90. I would go 20%. I regret my decision going light.

I went with 20%, and voted for it also. Here's a link to my thread with pics of 20% all around on my M3: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=283396

35% wouldn't look bad either.

Like some have already mentioned, go with Formula 1 brand.

Llumar is also a good brand. 20% didnt cut it for me, but thats just my opinion so I went with 15% might as well go alittle dark

I opted for 35% all around to keep the visibility.

what do you guys think about 20% on the rear windshield and 35 on the dooors?

make it just a smidg darker while still getting the visibility out of the sides

Yes, that would be a good compromise. Or you can go down to 15% in the back windshield.

Like I recommended before, that's what I did and I'm very happy with it.

20% on the sides isn't really obstructive, in my honest opinion. Don't let the darker appearance from the outside fool you.

If you like to go darker, yet still get good visability.....20% all around is perfect. If you're sensitive to going slightly darker than average and you just wanna play it safe, go with 35% on the sides, and 20% on the back.

Looks good.

Need better pics though.

Please tell me you purchased a high-quality film (tint)?
