Huge No.

unless you put gold-120-spoke wire rims, neon under the body, and a huge bolt-on spoiler...

Hmmm...yep, that would do it. :D

Just kidding...but you get the point.

What is a mirror tint? Is like a tint on ur windows that is extremely reflective like the lenses in some aviator style sunglasses? Can you post a pic as an example? thanks

The outside reflection of the tint is silver instead of a smoke color like the majority of car window tints.

Thanks...

I would guess that there are only 2 types of people who drive cars with mirrored tints: drug dealers/drug users, and soccer moms who don't want to be pulled over/ticketed for talking on their cell phones while driving, lol.

On a more serious note, I am pretty sure mirrored tints on the front, front sides and rear windows are illegal in every state, so you would probably end up with lots of tickets/harassment from the cops.

Mirror tint is not appropriate on an S5-rather ghetto IMO.

Thanks for the input. I just didnt know if anyone had any pics with mirror tint. I dont know how it would look but figured I'd ask.

I don't think it looks ghetto... but I think it only looks good on silver cars.

Don't do it

When my tint guy did my S5, he told me that mirror tint (which is actually 'metallic film' instead of carbon or ceramic) is a big no-no for Audi's because it interferes with the electronics of the car--and in general will kill your cell phone signal.

Stick with something more classy. :)

Yes, but only if you don't have/use phone preparation with external anthena, it means also no bluetooth conection.
