Default Any silver v's out there with tint other than black

Was going to tint the v here shortly and wondering if anyone has reflective tint or such on their silver v. Would love to see some pics...im all silver and chrome so think it may look real good to do some sort of silver or chrome tint

I think it'll look a little ghetto honestly. I got 3% all the way around and it looks good. Just my .02

I wouldnt do reflective tint. Its ghetto/tacky IMO too. Dark tint always looks best.

Have them done at a paint shop where they can sand em and spray them with transparent black. Just dropped all my lights and grills off today to be smoked/painted black.

I considered a reflective type tint but I was torn. SO I bought a roll of cheap walmart tint in black and did a quick half *** tint job on the driver's side in black 5% and the passenger side with a silver/bronze (not the mirror junk). I rolled it like that for a couple days and it was a NO BRAINER to me that the black looked much better and cleaner. So I had it done professionally in the black 5%

If you are local to a tint shop that is reputable, go in and look at their displays. Tint can come in som many flavors that maybe they can recommend something or have pics of other silver cars.
