Matt I love your car. It is identical to mine but I got black interior. Tint looks like a must do but I had a Honda prelude in my youth with 20% tint and it was impossible to see the side mirrors or out the back at night. I'd have to open the windows in dead of winter. What's your experience guys with 20% tint on a BMW? Too dark to see out at night? What about 35% tint? Or 35 front 20 rear any pics of that?

I believe my tint is 35 front 20 rear, pics in the mineral silver pics thread.

I was really happy to come across your pictures...I knew exactly what tint to ask for! I like the uniform tint look a lot better than really dark back windows and lighter front windows.

Thats because the dealer is contracting it out to a service which is charging like 200 for the whole car and then the sales guy marks it up and then the dealership and by the time you get it its $500... Don't ever have a dealer do a service for you unless its brand related. Autobahn or roadblock is only like 350-400 for instance but a dealer will charge 800+, so my advice is just find a private tint company to do your windows, most of them are contracted by various dealers...

How's the heat rejection with 80%? Is the tint noticeable on the windshield? I want to tint my car to keep it cool and get rid of the harshness of the light, but I don't want to go very dark

This film is really great, as it knocks out 92% of IR yet only 34% of visible light, so it works like a much, much darker film as far as reducing heat in the car. Really a big step up from the tint in my 2007 G35.

The more I see MW, the more I like it? Is your's MW?

What a colour man!!! I've changed my perception of white completely after looking at your car...wow!

After seeing all the pics, I really like MW and never thought I'd say this but Glacier Silver is stunning too...

Madico film 35% front windows + 20% rear windows


I figured instead of starting my own thread, I'd just revive an old one.

Seems to be a common question, people asking what different color car with different tint % looks like.
