Haven't posted here in a while figured I'd put up some quick cell phone pics. I'm currently running with some lamin X (Darkest I could get) film on the corner - to cover the orange - to see how I like it and I think am going to get my body shop guy to make that permanent... thoughts?

















I also have a Dinan style intake that I will be using, I just had my body shop paint the tunnels gloss black and once I have time we're gonna turn it into a ram air intake feeding air straight to the factory airboxes

I tinted my amber corners. I got the idea from member M55555. I believe mine are even darker than his too. They used a "dark smoke" film. The alternative was "light smoke" Couldn't tell you what the light % is. I personally prefer the look...you have my blessing :thumbsup:

here's a couple of mine: you'll notice the amber bulb still illuminates through the tint but I don't mind it...I actually like it glowing from behind the tint.

Haha, yeah I sure DON'T have the keys, lol. We need to get some M5 owners to hit up a cars and coffee (perhaps at a certain time maybe later than 8 am on a Saturday, lol?)<o:p></o:p>

<o:p></o:p>
Thanks, front is a vanity plate, rear is the legal one<o:p></o:p>

I like the window tint. What percent is that?
<o:p></o:p>

<o:p></o:p>
It's 3M 15%, it's their second tier of film, not the entry level. I've had all sorts of films but I really like the 3M one, color wise it looks the best I think. I wanted 20% originally but 15% feels and looks good since our windows are so big. And also they do not offer the 20% in the second tier (quality wise)<o:p></o:p>

Yeah, I don't mind it illuminating through I just wanted to hide the orange and this works well so I think am going to go ahead and do it. And, actually legally I think it "has" to illuminat through.... not that it really matters, lol
