looking for picture of black sedans with 35 or 50% tint

I have had my car almost 10 months and I still haven't tinted it yet.

I am looking for a pictures of a black or dark color E90's with 35 or 50% tint.

I am not intersted in going any darker, in fact I think 35% may be too dark for me.

So if you have pics or can help me find them( I did search) I would appreciate it.

I have 35% LLumar F1 Pinnacle Ceramic film on Black Sapphire. These pics should give you a better idea about the transparency of 35%:

I will chime in with my opinion here, no pix.

With 50% it's like no tint at all because it's not noticeable. With 35% you can tell. So if you simply want to block out the heat with not visual affect on your car, go with 50%. If you would like to change the aesthetic a little bit, definitely go with 35.

I'm going to have to disagree, which is why I am having a hard time deciding.

I tend to be conservative family guy type, and not the average E90 post early 20's mod guy.

there is a women who works in my building with a black on black 535, with I think 35%and on overcast or dark days I think it looks way too dark, yet on sunny days it looks good.

Then I searched the "official window tint thread" and found an E93 saddle on white, with 50%(screen name sterns) and I think it looks classy.

so darn confused.

F1 Pinnacle 35% FTW! Not too dark and not too light, perfect % IMO!

Yeah on cloudy/overcast days tints will look darker than they are. On a bright sunny day 50% is virtually not noticeable. I cant comment on NY's weather but here in CA there aren't that many over cast/cloudy days. Thus cars with 50% tints are rare (well, at least you can't tell there are tints on them). Anyhow, goodluck with the decision and be sure to post some pix.
