Random: I was at the police station one day to file a report. I was talking to an officer next to my car and a man comes up to us... He asked if I had gotten a tint citation because that is why he was at the station
What tint do you have? It does look dark from the photo, could be cause the photo is enhanced?

335i style

Hey all,
Anyone like the way the 335i sedan looks compared to the e46 sedans? I want a black car and am considering just trading in my car to get a 05 e46 zhp, am I crazy? Should I just wait for the e92 to grow on me?

Did you tint the entire Windshield or just part of the top (to the AS-1 line)? If it is the entire Windshield that explains why your car looks so dark.

I always wondered about tinting the whole windshield 50% to keep the car cooler but wanted to avoid a ticket, although it would be hard for law enforcement to get their tint measurer wrapped around the windshield

The entire windshield is tinted. I have sever migraine problems, and oncoming traffic at night was killer for me.

35% is not bad at all; Visibility is completely fine. Anything lower would be bad though. I think 50% would be good for you if you decide to tint it.

At least you caught it

Luckily your entire coolant system did not erupt on the highway like in my old e38
