Has anyone noticed that sooooooooooooo many vehicles have their front windows tinted? It's illegal to have any tint on them in BC. I guess the cops don't care much?

They do. Those you've seen are lucky so far. If any of them get pulled over they will get a ticket

I have no intentions of tinting my windows, I was just curious.

Does anyone know how much it would cost to make the exhaust sound a bit louder/deeper. VERY subtle, but just nice sounding.

Yes, I'm a n00b. Y'all can look forward to a lot of questions/inquiries from me!

Also, there's a typo in the thread title "Offical* Vancouver Members Thread (#2)"

Fuck ehh, its illegal to have the back windows tinted to ?, buddy of mine got his tint done last month with 20 percent visual done and I think that's why to dark for my liking. I was considering more of a dealership tint around 40 percent visual in the rear windows, you guys think that's to heat ?

It's not illegal to have back windows tinted, even pitch black is legal.

How much is it? I don't care about it improving performance, I just was a subtle nice sound.

Just picked up my first BMW today!

2008 328i E90

DARK GRAY
SPORT PACKAGE
PREMIUM PACKAGE
COMFORT ACCESS - NO NEED FOR KEYS TO OPEN/START CAR (DOOR HANDLES HAVE LED LIGHTS, LOOKS REALLY NICE AT NIGHT)
LOGIC 7 SOUND SYSTEM
SPORTS SEATS WITH LUMBARS/MEMORY/HEATED (THE SIDES ALSO FILL WITH AIR SO THEY "HUG" YOUR BODY)
BLUETOOTH - HANDS FREE
DAKOTA LEATHER
XENON HEADLIGHTS
FOG LIGHTS
LOCAL
NO ACCIDENTS

Some things I want to change (maybe someone could give me a rough estimate on how much each change would cost):
Tint back windows
Make head lights blueish colour, not yellow (they are only the blueish colour when the headlights are on at night)
Make fog lights blueish colour
Paint rims dark gray or black (maybe buy new rims, but I don't mind the look of mine at all, just the colour)
Paint front kidney grill black - still not 100% decided on this

By blueish I mean Xenon, HID, or whatever you want to call it. How much would that cost roughly? I just want to change the colour.

Yes, I realize that I probably sound like a total n00b.

I'm a noob as well but from what I've learned so far...
You can easily find black grills.. On here or Craigslist for about 100 bucks
Changing you daytime lights (angel eyes) from yellow to white 200 bucks
Painting or plasti-dipping your rims is the cheap solution but some people feel it devalues the rims.. So if you plan on getting rims in the future, just keep the OEM ones you have for now, and buy a 2nd set. Or possible trade with someone that is looking to go back to OEM.
