Tints

Currently I have a Benz with 35% tints and rear window shade which I keep up pretty much always. Have alot of SUV's around here and I sometimes get annoyed with their headlights even with the automatic dimming rearview mirror. I have an 08' 328 coupe in Alpine white on order and no rear window shade option. Was thinking about getting 20's on the rear window and 35's on the sides. Anyone else have this on their car? Think it would look ok? Any pics would be greatly appreciated

I think uniform tint looks the best.. go to the cosmetic mod section and do a search, there are a lot of tinted AW cars there

I guess you mean 20% when you say 20's.

Yes, people do have darker on the rear window. 35% sides and 20% rear would look fine. I was going to get 15% rear, but decided to get 30% all the way around.

Will look fine IMO. I don't like the look of 35/20 front/rear doors or front/rear quarter panel though!

On my 328i, I have the auto-dimming rear view (same as my old B7 S4) and both cars have 35% all around. Never any problems with bright lights behind me or in the side mirrors, and I've seen some pretty bright lights behind me.

I have that on my benz as well. It's not so much the glare off the rear view as much as the way it's lights up the whole inside of my car and I still get glare sometimes off the side view mirrors. those aren't auto dimming on my benz.
