Can rear window be tinted in '08 335i Sedan?

I was cleaning the rear glass yesterday and realized that unlike other cars,
the rear defroster element wires are not sandwiched between two layers of glass, they are actually glued onto the inside of the rear glass. If you run your fingernail across the glass you can feel every wire. The flat wires feel like they are probably the thickness of window tint.

How in the world can a tint shop tint this? If they trim around the edges it's going to cut through every wire and how would they put the tint on a surface that's not smooth with 100s of raised wires criss-crossing it?
