Here's an example of an E89 with tinted windows. https://e89.zpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=952789
But not one photo of roof down/windows up, as this is what the OP is now concerned about, I believe?
I’m sure OP can use their imagination. There’s enough shots there to give a good idea of what different tint set ups will look like.

And there’s no need to be snarky. I’m just trying to share something helpful.

What's your point?
That the link didn't show the car with windows up and roof down (unless I missed one?).

I found these - hope they help.

^ See that looks terrible doesn't it.

I'm thinking of just doing the small rear side windows though, not the fronts. So I'd just need to remember to put them down if the roof is down, they make very little difference anyway.

Some really good photos there and I like the look it adds to the appearance I think. :thumbsup:

With the wind deflector left in - and how many of us take it out? - a tinted back window's going to look very dark, isn't it?

Remember that tints are done with a plastic layer, hence any moving window will eventually show scratch marks.
