Good deal. But I noticed you have your car listed as a 2003 330ci, which is a coupe (2 door) and according to TNT's website, 2 doors are supposed to be $139, 4 doors are $159. Did you list your car wrong and you have a 4 door, or is TNT jacking up the price due to the illegality of the tint? I need to get mine redone. I want either 5% all around, or whatever's the next step darker. I figure if I'm already going to get a ticket for it then I mine as well make it worth it.

Nah, they did my cl500. There is no darker then 5%. 5% is limo tint, can't see through it at all. Also makes it darker to look out of. They charged 159$ because cl500 has huge windows haha

Ah, ok, didn't know you got the CL tinted, lol. I should have figured that based on previous posts. There is darker than 5%, you can layer them. For example, a friend of mine from Oklahoma has double 5% on his truck, basically 2 layers of 5% tint. I'm not sure what the would register as on a tint-meter, but it's dark as fukk. Mine as well be painted.

I've decided right now, at 11:48, im going to get my fronts retinted this weekend from 35 to 20. I've been putting it off for too long now. That and all this tint talk may have had something to do with it...

My rear's on my 4Runner are 10% on top of the factory 20%. I had it metered at 4%. My fronts meter at 7% (originally 10%tint, but it varies depending on the glass it goes on).

If there isnt an acutal light source within 20ft I cant see anything in my side mirrors, much less anything out the back at night... if Anyone needs to see how dark DARK is... I suggest getting in a car before you do it, if I'm free and youre in the area you're welcome to ride along. I wouldnt have gone this dark myself, but I bought the truck this way and dont want to strip and retint it.

IMO 20-15% is a good tint level for daytime blocking and nighttime visibility...
