window tint?

not sure if there is a window tint thread here, but I am trying to decide how I should tint my 328. It is black on back, I am thinking 35% all around, or maybe 35% sides and rear window 10%?

can anyone help me with pictures or a link to thread?

Heres a couple pics of my car with 35% all around.
Sorry about all the reflections and what not. I took the pics in direct sunlight.
The first pic is a before tint pic and the second is after. Notice the water bottle and shifter. The last pic is just a angled shot. Notice my mom carrying a watermelon.

This is 50% on the windshield and 35% on everything else




Really depends on the angle and distance of view. Sometimes it looks straight up black, sometimes it looks barely tinted.

Where'd you get your tint done at? Ive been calling around and haven't found any prices acceptable.

I did 18% on mine and that is because I live in south florida where the heat is unbearable especially on my black on black 328i Coupe. The only thing that bothers me is the dot matrix =\
