I used 3M crystaline. 70% on the front doors, 50% on the back doors and rear window. I do notice it at night, but visibility is still good. The 3M does a really good job of rejecting the heat and UV.

I'm in Ventura County, I don't know anyone out east. I just got an recommendation from the dealer. They did a great job as they do a lot of BMW's there.
