I think if you have light interior colors then lighter tint will look even lighter. Also, on a black car tint tends to look a little darker. I did 35% all around on my black e90 and it looked awesome but I did 20% on my new space gray and I think its perfect! I think anything darker than 20% starts getting ghetto.

looks so much better cuz the shadow line trim helps connect the tint to the rest of the car. Old on had the silver trim that looks hideous.

Yeah, TNT was pretty busy today. I had to book 2 1/2 weeks ahead! They said they start getting really busy around March and it last till almost November. I think 35% is perfect for me. Now I just have to install my pedals and dp's before the big meet.

Seth, where did you get your trim blacked out or did you do it yourself?

Yep his name is Mike Broderick with Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists and his cell is 608-333-6292. He does a lot of work for Zimbrick and he can either come to you or you can meet him somewhere and wait.

between $80 and $125 per wheel depending on how bad it looks. I had one that was pretty f-d up in like 4 spots and it was the full $125. I had another one that was just 1 spot and an easy fix and it was $80 (however this one was a winter wheel and off the car so I just gave it to him and it took him a week or so to get it back to me, maybe why it was cheaper).
