Arrow Official Window Tinting Picture Thread

Post a Picture of your car with tinted windows and include the VLT (% tint) and how you feel about it!


I had my windows tinted today - I'll post pics later in the week when I get a chance!
I chose a 20% VLT tint, but they look alot lighter then I remeber'd them to be on my old E46. I hope the tint shop never made a mistake...

What happedned to the other thread like this? Just wondering how many different % tints there are. Massachusetts limit is 35% all around. That sucks because I would love to go 20% but don't want the hassle of the police.

Ok...here are the photo's of my tint.

It's a 20% all round. Reflective metalic type tint on the windows and NOW a non-metalic type tint on the rear window (after I had some issues). The front window isn't tinted!

Had it done at Window Tint center opposite the old investment cars showroom.

Is that 30% visibility or 30% tint? It seems kind of mild, which I like. I keep going back and forth on whether to tint. How much night visibility do you lose?

I'd really appreciate it if someone would post pics of the rear sun shade option. Perhaps showing the shade in use and not in use? I hope it's ok to ask as I didn't want to start a new thead for this request. TIA

Since i have NO idea how to post pics... here is the link of my thread w/ pics of my car and the tint.

I got 20% all around. Its called quantum. Its supposed to be high end, its almost a sliver gray in the sunlight. I love it, BUT- i think the guy who tinted the windows fucked it up.. I still have air pockets in the back window and its been over a month. I need to go back!

Here is my X3 with 15%. I will probably get the same on my '06 330i.
If you live somewhere with cops that like busting people for tint, than maybe go lighter.... but otherwise go dark.
Just taking the test drive in the un-tinted car was annoying
For guy guy in Mass who posted earlier. I have been driving this X3 (15%), a 330ci (20%) before that and a MB C230(20%) before that in MA for almost 6 years now, all with dark tint , and have never been stopped about it.
