Huber

Contemplating Huber ceramic 50 or 60 to try to stay legal in NY. Anyone have any experience with this? Is it too light to make a difference?

hey spinzon, nice airport scene...which airport is it? Lookes like ERAU or one of the big schools? I'm a general aviation pilot who has put off airplane ownership for a few years in order to buy my E90. I have 650 hours and commercial/instrument but just flying for fun. I live in the Chicago area.

Thanks for your comments Bimmer325!

I have 35% on the front driver & passenger sides and 20% on the rear window & rear side windows.
I debates over the tinting for some time and decided on this combination & I am very happy with the results.

Hey Spinzon

I live in Jax. Where did you get the tint done. What brand and how much should I expect to pay?

I have decided not to get my windows tinted because no one would be able to see the big smile on my face.

Toronto's limit is 25% but its too light for me. I want to go 15% or 10%.

NICE, but your 35% is very DARK, I am surprised. Cuz I have a 25% now on my Acura, and its not very dark. That is why I have decided to go to 15% FRONT and 10% back and rear when I get my E90.

Tinting is adhering a film that to the interior side of your windows on the car. The tint can be made of different materials, such as dye-based (cheapest and lowest quality), metallic (most common), and ceramic.

If I don't have CA, Nav, or care about AM reception (I do have Satellite radio though)...any reason not to go with a standard metallic tint?

Do the ceramic tints (Formula One in my area) have a slight reflective look to them like the metallics?

Thoughts on Carbon (Suntek) tints?

My primary reason for tinting is for heat...
