What do you guys think of my mirror tints ?

I bought the car with mirror tints, at first i thought it looked kind of weird because I've never seen a BMW with mirror tints before but its slowly growing on me.
What do you guys think ?

all honesty.. beautiful car. but i dont have to feel bad bashing it bc you didnt selectively chose to have this tint applied to you car, but bought it with it. without any question, take it off. its kinda like chrome wheel. you need no supporting reason you just DONT. it looks gaudy, cheap, and trashy imo. it takes away from a clean looking car. i dont like tint at all, but especially that. eww. remove my friend. its truly tasteless.

Wheels look different from that angle. That's pretty cool. Didn't know they could do that.

Doesn't the S-class come with faint mirror tints? I would rip it off and put 20% on it

BWHAHAHA! Good eye, I noticed that as well. That tint is surely illegal..most likely the same film used for commercial buildings. I have metallic/reflective tint, and they mainly 'mirror' really well during cloudy days. For sunny/clear skies, it's for the most part like normal tint. All legit as well.

They don't look horrible... but that type of tint looks better on a lighter colour vehicle. If you have thoughts about removing them, don't hesitate, go for it.

ehhh.. my friend has them on his white s550 and actually pulls them off. but i think that's the only car it can work on

at least you didn't waste money on them. I'd remove them and go for some nice 25% black tints

i have 15% and it's too dark at night
