I'll go different and say a chrome colour. I think it would suit the silver car.

DEEP BLACK... definately...

coloured tint looks really really bad!

black looks sharp on anything and will contrast the grey nicely...

chrome is to close to grey and won't look good... it could be helpful if someone holds you at gun point while you're opening your door you so can see them behind you... unless you're paranoid... GO BLACK!

This is mine with 35% (depest legal in australia) black tint.
Photo is a crappy angle for the lighting, but it shows the tint the best.

A grey charcoal 35% is the world's most popular colour and light transmission.

Nahh, too lazy (and too little time). plus I don't use photoshop often enough anymore and it would take me too long.

LOL, I wish I had a copy of photoshop so I could do stuff like that. The black looks good, although as something different I reckon the chrome/silver tint.
Actually there is a blue VY ute here at work and it has mirrored blue tint on the windows. Looks awesome, maybe a totally different colour is needed for that real unique look.

I think i prefer the black - i don't think the chrome works with the black window surrounds. On a BA it'd work better due to the lack of pillars/frames, but black is better on the BJ.
