I just tinted my Estoril Blue 335i M-Sport

I just got my tints done at the S & A Autosound and Alarm for $150 only . The guy is located at the 3725 Wet Fullerton Ave, Chicago IL, if anyone is interested . He did a really good job and he is the cheapest in Chicago Area. Its 35% all around which is legal for IL

I honestly like the way it is now because the 403s are metallic/chrome , and I think this grill goes better with those rims, if they were darker definitely

Cool.
Your thoughts on 35% during night-time driving? Is it too dark for night driving?

The 35% is from the view outside in. If you get a good quility tint it will look as if you don't even have tint from the inside out view. Stick to the good name brands and not metallic.

Great value on the tint job. What is the tint brand? Also do you know if they work on clear bra film?
