Either go 20% all the way around or 30-35% all the way around. I had 20% on my coupe and on the sedan i have 30%.

I kind of shy away from dark tint .. IMHO it looks classier without, but it's down to personal taste.

Too dark and you risk looking ricer. If I was going to have it, I'd certainly go no darker than 30-35%.

i have 30% all the way around on my coupe. looks perfect IMO....not too dark at night but still dark enough during the day.

whatever % you choose i would suggest doing it all the way around for a coupe....i say that because the front windows are so big and it just looks cleaner if its the same all the way around.

also welcome to the forums!

Go 35% tint! It looks classy, sexy, but its not dark enough to get a ticket.
I got pulled over once for my tint, but the second the cop looked straight on he left me off and told me its not dark enough to be illegal. Any darker and you could get a ticket.


PS Review my latest thread in the exhaust section, car sounds perfect now! I found the ultimate set up. Mufflers are back on and I love it!

got an email saying Edmonton BMW is having an Ultimate Demo Event where they are selling Executive Demo's. Any way of finding out if they're any E92 M3/335's for sale?

We got the JB4 on Vader's FBO car tonight .. that thing is no joke! It's also logging very clean, so we'll probably push the PSI up a couple of points to squeeze out every last drop.

335i+FBO+JB4 = WIN! Now he just needs methanol.. LOL

The car is serious.... with both myself AND simon in the car, it was pulling twice as hard as COBB 93 octane up top.... It is wild with just me in the car.
I honestly don't know many cars that could pull from me in a drag. JB4 rocks!

You'd be surprised -- at Race City, lots of prepped cars on drag radials will go very fast in the 1/4 mile.

You won't find many faster on the street, however. N/A cars are losing ~12% power at our altitude .. it wasn't very long ago I stayed ahead of a heavily modded Mustang GT that was pushing a lot more paper HP than me, and top end, I even gently pulled.

Believe me, modded domestic guys hate being killed ..

Just remember, there will always be somebody faster!
