Windows Tinted

Well I got the windows tinted last week. I think it makes the car look a lot better when the top is up with the dark tint.

That looks nice. I was about to tint mine also but decided to wait until I can get the new top with the rear glass window. By then, I'll tint all around.

Good blend with the top. It's gotta help keep the heat down.

Back window is plastic. If it were glass I probably would have tinted it around 35% to maintain some visibility from the mirror especially since the little window is hard enough to see out of anyway.

Good call on the wheels...I have been looking around. I think I want black to contrast the yelow.

My advise to you is to go with flat black. My dad has a 996T and has champion wheels that were originally gloss black. Recently the paint was chipping all over them so, he sent them back and requested they paint them in flat black. Looks ten times better and it hides the brake dust like no other. I was over at his house yesterday and thought he just cleaned his wheels, swiped my finger across them and no he didn't, you just can't see it. Plus, you can see the pattern of the rim better.
