With the top and windows up, I can still see your steering wheel and dash. So not too dark.

I don't think it's too dark. I'm sure it looks more dark at night too. Your car looks a lot cleaner with that lip painted!

you should cut off the excess piece in front of your intercooler, will make it more aggressive looking, and not having something blocking it. Really easy to shave off, you can use a dremel. It would make it cleaner, and not have a piece look out of place.

the shop where they installed my fmic said if they cut off that black piece then my headlights would be out of line ?? So I'm guessing that was a lie?? Lol

No, not correct. With big intercoolers like AA, big tom, and even helix, cutting is to be done to the shroud. It has nothing to do with headlight. I have cut mine off, and so have others who have replaced their intercoolers. no affect to headlight!

Looks great! I personally like it being dark and yours looks really good, however cops here in CA will ask you tear it off if they notice it super dark. I generally prefer ~35%. Yours looks really good nonetheless.

Nice car, I remember seeing you on g35driver back when I used to own a G. Your car really came around overall. Tint is good but personally I think 15% is the best tint!
