Window Tinting

have a 2011 X6 50i non-sport coming in the next few days (ordered 8/11, released to carrier 8/24!) it is mineral silver with oyster interior. the dealer is going to have the windows tinted as part of the package. any opinions? (grey vs. bronze tint, all windows same or darker in the back) if the hatch window gets tinted, is it going to cause even more visibility problems? thanks in advance!

I tinted mine 20% in front, with black tint. It matches perfectly rear tint.

I tried doing darker in the rear and I changed it out to be the same. I did 15% formula one ceramic tint all the way around. Looks really good and blocks out pretty much all ultra violet and keeps the car cooler in the summer.

Tinted ours all round, ( have Black interior), 20 % tint.
The Sun Roof as supplied has a Dark Tint. I wouldn't want the interior any darker. However the Oyster will be brighter.
Suggest do windows first. Then SunRoof later

Same here...20% all around and is great. For those in states where front window tints are illegal, it's on the border of being legal, so not worth pulling you over too...
