Been driving cars with tint for awhile now...

20% definitely causes issues at night because of how dark it is...never had an issue with 35% (which is what I got above).

It will improve over the next few days/nights, but there will still be a little residual...I had the Huper Optik Ceramic 40% installed and at first I was very unhappy about the night/ headlight effect but it decreased over time AND I got more accustomed to it...

Didn't realize the M2 actually came with a portable tire inflator in the trunk!! Along with a screw driver in a bag with a tow hook. However the tire inflator is a cheap one and analog but it works! Still happy with my purchase because it's digital and easy to use.

Me too.

Also, got my Vorsteiner front lip installed and already scraped it. This won't end well once the car gets coilovers.

So what's the deal? You're obviously keeping the '16 DCT and not flipping it for a '17/18 6MT? The female shopaholic addiction is strong with this one.

I pulled myself off the LCI list. M2 will be a track queen/part time daily driver. I bought a manual Z4 coupe about a month ago to learn on. Then I'll trade that for a Z4M and add a 9114S for daily use so the M2 can be turned into a track car or I buy an e36 m3 track car. Too many options. Plus the shoe addiction continues....

A stripped E36 M3 with a roll cage makes a great track car.
