Night Owl...

Hello,

Just did a quick shoot with my camera and here are some photos.

S/O Mode Carbon with the pieces! The car needed all the parts.

Wow nice. Are you worried at all about getting a fix-it ticket for it? I've never gotten tint done on any of my other vehicles and doing 50% on the sides and 35% on the back for my E63S. Noticed you're in California also so just wondering what your experience has been if any with getting issued a citation for the tint. Or do cops mostly not care?

Funny you say that because I got pulled over 2 weeks ago for tints but the cop didn't give me a ticket for it. He told me that he loved the car and knows the car looks better with tints so he gave me a fix it front license plate ticket instead.

2018 E63S AMG
Was pulled over in my Jeep Wrangler for tint on the driver and passenger windows. Dealer had brought the Jeep over from NV because of a dealer swap mix up locally after I'd already signed the contract. They had added the tint in NV at the dealer but I didn't know that and thought the tint was factory. Was a very nicely done job.

Cop pulled me over and had to convince me it wasn't factory glass. Finally managed to find the edge of the tint film. Fix-it ticket. Dealer removed the tinting and compensated me in service credit for the ticket and having to deal with it.

Honestly, it was too dark, whatever the percentage was. I'm happier without it.

Looks wise, I know it would look really good on the E63s

Maybe a dumb question but the grill is carbon fiber not black? Hard to tell in the pics? How do you like it and how was the fitment?

You can see it in the Mode Carbon thread. In fact, it's the same car.
