Tinted my E93 Crimson Red

Finally, I re-tinted my passenger windows from 50% to 35% myself.
Rears are 20%. (previously done by a shop)
Front windshield strip(2 piece) 2.5%.

Front doors were little tough since I dont have a garage and its always windy(need to keep the door opened) and the doors are longer as compared to a 4 door.

Here are some pics.
Removed old tint, cleaned the glass and applied new tint.

Thanks Man.
Somehow they are looking darker in the pics, may be dude to sun direction.
earlier, I had got 50%F and 20% Rear. That was looking really bad and my wife was kind of sarcastically commenting everyday...lol. so i decided to go for 35%.

good to know. maybe 35 is where i want to be. maybe a tad lighter than what i see in the pictures, which is probably more realistic in person. nice work again!

If you go 35% all over, it will be lighter and good.

Damn that looks great for a DIY! I tried tinting about 4 years ago, failed miserably, and never gave it a shot again :loo:
