I say you go for them platinum tints, to go with your Platinum Silver Metallic, chrome Altezzas, platinum teef, and other assorted bling.

Whatever color you choose, have Leeberbs tint your car. He'll do it right.

definetly, i saw him in action at the first AZP install day, and he does great work! i have planned to get it done by him, but his tinting choices are limited... so i hafta find a color, tell him who makes it, and then he can order it & put it on for me...

SO HELP ME FIND TINT!

I suggest that drive over to Tropic Window Tinting in Union and check out the choices that they offer and the work that they do. Their work is top notch. Nothing short of perfection!

One word:

Dark!!!

None of that silver or color crap... it looks too ghettoish and it's just a phase... it will be out of style before you change your underwear... oh... well... there you go.... it's already out of style.

Dark tints makes the car look stealth, sleek and it's functional

a good black tint job makes a sports car look good, and any car look ok... but thats where it stops...
if u didnt kno by now, i dont go w/the norm, the plain, the basic, i go w/crazy, but nice, stuff...
i saw a silver vr4 at atco once, w/fog tint and it lookd amazing...

I'd go with the mirror fade to blue.

Actually, I'd stick w/ black. Althogh the Silver looks nice on a Silver car, once you put the window down it looks stupid. If it were up to me, I'd to black.

On a side note, here in the Tri-State (on L.I. to be exact), Whiplash did a very creative tint job. He did the subaru star symbol in mirror tint, and then did black tint over it. It looks pretty cool. The downsides are that it's expensive, and that he said it gets to much attention.
Maybe Whiplash or ZoomnWRX could post the pic.

I got Lumar Stealth tint 35% all around. I think it looks great and may be what you're looking for. It has a silver sheen to it at certain angles, but you can still see through it. It gives the same protection as 20% regular tint.

Here's a link to a pic I posted up on ClubWRX.net: http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/showth...threadid=14436

I had the titanium tint done on my black wagon, I went to tropic window in Union too, they did a great job. I do not have any pics but the car was at the central jersey meet a few weeks ago, weren't you there?
The Ti tint is nice, especially on the black car, it is not too mirror, looks more smokey than anything and the guys at tropic said it will definitely keep the car cooler in the summer.

Personally on a silver car I think the plain dark tint looks best, it is cheaper too.

I have a Silver WRX and I have 20% regular dark tints and it looks fantastic. I get complements everywhere I go. It is kind of a pain backing up at night with tints but hey...what can ya do.

I got them done for $65 and the guys did an awesome job. My friend recomended them. He had the same tints put on his pearl white A4 and they look awesome on his too.

That is one of the reasons I chose the titanium tint. It also looked great against the black. Decisions decisions....
