So is 35% lol .. I think legal is like 70%.. I know people getting tickets for 55% so it really does not matter.. But you gotta get on that PBA card and you'll maybe catch some luck a few times... As i hope i will.. = )

I have 20% all around on my black interior e90 and feel it isn't dark enough. I wish I had gone 15 or even 10. My plan is to tint the windshield 60% and see if that makes me happy. You may want to consider doing that.

There are a lot of opinions about windshield tinting, and I've never had more than the strip, but the general consensus is that 60% doesn't effect night-time driving and helps a lot with the general visibility inside the car.

It looks fine, you don't need 99.9999999999999999999% tint on your car to be "cool".

It isn't about being cool. I don't like people being able to see me singing Katy Perry or getting roaddome. Also in the south it keeps the car from getting insanely hot in the summers. The sunshade and sunroof vent can only do so much. Also, it looks cool.

I can see all the way through both side windows. I don't think it's dark enough. It depends on your preference though. I like it dark and like to know I can have privacy. And I also have a newborn that will be in the back so she I want it as dark as I can. I went limo. Of course its illegal but it's my preference. Just like it's someones preference to mod their exhaust and cut cats etc. It's also illegal. Drive someones car that has the percentage you want. Drive it at night too so you can see how it is to see out of the sides.

Your tint is perfect especially when driving, it's the right shade inside. In daylight with the snow reflecting even more light, it makes you want a darker tint but really it's fine.

You forgot the 60% Huper Optik option on your poll.

Also, those tacky license plate frames need to come off.

I think it looks fine. Personally, I'm not fond of the limo look; no need to go darker IMHO.
