Probably because there are fewer windows and therefore less light entering the car.
Thanks you for the input. I agree with you. I think I will go 35% all around.... i kinda like that lighter tint look

If you go with black interior on the M3, that will make the 35% tint appear darker. 15% is a tad darker than I would prefer, although I really like that nobody can see in, even during the day. Have you considered going with 15% for the rear and rear side windows, but 35% for the front doors?

Sweet, that will save me a lot of work. This is my first time trying Zaino products and I just received some Z2, ZFX, and Z6 My friend sent me some instructions on how to use it, I'm going to give is a shot this weekend. Do you apply Zaino to the clear bra?

Very cool, I'll have to check that sticker out! I'm really happy that I bought your car too, I couldn't have found a used E92 anywhere that was taken care of as well. Please give me a heads up when you decide to sell the M3, I will probably be interested
I would of gone 35% in the back window since you already have the shade back there if necessary..... but then 15% probably looks better with vinyl.

I ordered the M3 today and hopefully it should be here sometime in Jan.

If you need any help with the Zaino stuff we can coordinate a time to get together and I can go over everything with you. I believe I did a full treatment in Aug. So you should be set for a while keeping in mind that has never been out in rain until the day i sold it to you. So you there should be more than enough protection for a while.

Yeah, I am sure I won't keep the M3 more than 2 years.... We will definitely keep in touch... heck we can even do a photo shoot once the car gets here.
