Tinting ADVICE!! ?

I still have ďNO TINTSĒ. Iíve been doing my research on Tints and I feel like Iíve done enough but now I need ADVICE on what I should do. I really want to get the BEST OF THE BEST TINTS, which is from my knowledge ďHUPER OPTIKĒ TINTS. I found an official DEALER 100% LEGIT and everything. Heís charging me $450 but I talked him down to $400. He only has 40% Tints and 60% tints for the HUPER OPTIK. Then he told me that if I really donít want to spend to just get whatever tints but the darker it is the better. I need your advice guys. If should get TINTS what should I get? What brand? Or should I go through with this ďHUPER OPTIK TINTSĒ ??

The type of look Iím trying to have is a nice look where itís not too dark but itís enough at night where you canít see through, I have 335is, dark grey, with Red Interior. I just want that look where its mature and not pitch black tints. Any Advice?

Thanks guys for your time..

Appreciate it

Go with 30%....40% maybe too light with a red interior.

I mean if you have the cash, go with huper optiks. I've heard good things about them.

Depends on what regular tints you're talking about. There are numerous tint brands....

IMO anything 40%-50% isn't even worth getting.

I have HO 36%. Its great. The way its created with ceramic creates a silvery look and you can't see through the window in direct sunlight. At night its not too dark but not too light. I suggest doing the windshield in the 60% as well. You won't regret. If you're talking about the art of tint they are legit.

If you want to make it look like a shitbox than by all means go with some 15% walmart film, but if you are tinting for decreased heat and UV protection then go with HO.
