Thanks. I'd love to see some more images if you have them. It's hard to see at that angle. Do you wish you had gone lighter all around?

Several tint pics. Windows were already tinted when I bought the car, so don't know the % tint or brand. Rear side and back windows are slightly darker than the doors. No tint on windshield.

Tint looks good, however, night time driving takes some getting used to also when backing up into my garage I always have to roll down the windows to see properly (I park one car front end in and my car rear end in to make entry and exit easier also not to ding the other car door).

black looks best without tint in my opinion.... that's how I kept mine. Not a fan of dark windows I don't think they look classy.

Couldn't disagree more. Every car looks better with tint IMO (assuming a reasonable shade and not something tacky like mirror tint). I feel so exposed not having any tint. Besides the privacy, tint also really cuts down on glare from sunlight and keeps the car cooler.

Ugh. I can't decide. It looks nice with the lighter tint. I wouldn't want to go too dark. I like some contrast between the windows and the car. That being said, that one of the reasons I'm hesitant to tint my black e93. I like the contrast....choices choices

Some older photos....35% all around and nothing on windshield. I'm happy with it and personally wouldn't want anything darker, or lighter.
