Man you guys have some pretty dope rides. Keep pics coming. I am liking the guys with the 50%-28% range. So torn.

If you all have side shots, please be sure to post because some of the angles may look deceiving.

Here's a couple different angles and daytime/nighttime of my 15% tint. I'm just trying to show that depending on the lighting and angles it sometimes appears very dark, and at other times not so dark.

thanx, having a darker/black interior helps make the tint look a little darker at certain angles...

Great thread! I'm looking to get my tints done this month as well. VA state requires 50 front and 35 back though . I might try to get away with 35-40 all around on Jerez Black.

Do you guys with the sedans use any protectors for the tint? I hear the tint gets pretty scratched up over time.

I plan on tinting the front a little darker (35%). Right now, I believe the rears are 20% and the fronts at 70%+. I would like to see some pictures of 20% rear and 35% front on an e92. Thanks!

I did 50% all around on my AW. Way better than dark tint. However I'm debating whether to tint at all on my new JB. Probably doing 70% all around.

I feel the sun burning me with 70% in the front. I'm quite pale.
