Exterior Upgrades

Fairly new to the forum, picked up an 11' 335i last week and wanted to start making cosmetic upgrades to it!

20% tint with black interior, is that too dark? If anyone could post their setup that'd be great. Also looking to go completely matte black with grill, wheels, badge, etc...

Are these a decent product?

Link won't work - mod bargains

Thanks!

This is 20% with black interior, always the first mod I do.

Don't go matte black on the grills, the Piano finish is much more appealing with that color, IMHO.

gloss/piano black grills are much cleaner looking
Do 20% tint. I've had 20% on all of my cars EXCEPT my bmw (which is 30%) and I wish it was darker.

x2 for piano black.

I did 15% with a black interior and I like it.

20% isn't that bad at all, just like any tint you have to get used to it at night that's all, and also be aware of cops

Had 25% done by a local tint shop. I'm loving it so far.
