    cheers matey, well the fronts will be alot lighter bcoz of the legal side of it, the company wont put illegal tints on as it will come back to them also!!!

    as for rear's am not sure what to do, always prefer as dark as you can get for the rear's but am not sure fully black on a silver car!!!!

    had this done to my black astra and they went dark as you can get and really suited it, but like i say black on silver?? altho i am going for smoked lights etc by looks of things!!!

    i would go the sliver route as would look pretty cool, but as you say if you are going down the black lights etc then black, what i was trying to say was keep the tints the same

    EZeee amos your ride looks sweeeeet! Are those smoked tints? Cheezy i to have a silver ride and will be looking to get the tints done hopefully in the summer but only after i get my dam wheels. When you looking to get yours done??

    I think Amos shade of tint looks just right, its not too dark but then again not too light if thats what you looking for?

    Cheers Donnie

    Yeah. My tints are Dark smoke at the back and Light smoke at the front.......but to be honest they are pretty similar and the Light Smoke still isnt legal. I think that the black roof kind of sets the car off really.....matching with the windows.

    erm hopefully just before summer, but i think legal fronts, with as dark as you can sunstripe, then not complete darkness at rears

    on the new 3 series coupes they only have the rear and rear corner tinted, not the door or front, there is a slight tint all over anyway, I am going mad myself all over, but stay away from silver tints, stick with black on this colour car.,???
