My wife's 40i. Won't mod it but I've done some spirited driving in it. The X7 will be a force to be reckoned with!

The F85 is headed for the glue factory. At 55k miles she's undesirable. The M5C will be in port stateside on 3/3.

Very sweet ride.

So what does this do? Is it a clear film on the front windshield to filter out IR? Does it work ok with the sensors on and near the windshield?

And I'm curious what audio system you have, that you're looking to upgrade. Pretty sure Bavsound doesn't have any upgrades for us yet in the X7, but will follow with great interest anyone that does upgrades.

Thanks!

- Yes the front windshield tint blocks out heat but also harmful IR and such. They have a 90% version as well that is pretty much invisible. I wanted it a tad darker than stock so that's why I opted with 70%.

I have the stock HK system. It sounds great as it is but missing some good bass at loud volumes. This is actually the best HK system I've had in any of my BMWs so far.

BLVK is another way for us to creatively write the color black but it also stands for - Be Loyal, Valued, Kind.

I see. Is that the name of your company or car club?

Any issues with the SolarGard Vortex IR Film in respect to LAH effect ?

I thought that there is electronic option to define exhaust sound? You can set as per mode or all the time sport mode, am I missing something?

I am assuming you are taking about the Laser Headlights - I don't have that on my car. If you are talking about the Assisted Driving/Cruise Control, it doesn't affect it at all as well as HUD is unaffected. Hope that helps.

Yeah - You can code all time sport mode but I wanted the sound in comfort mode as well which is why I took off the flange.

That helps a lot thanks

I was talking about low angle haze (LAH)

Best Noticeable when the sun rays hit the car windows directly before noon and around sunset creating a haze "milky" effect on the ceramic tinted windows.

The darker the shade, the more visible.

Had it with solar Gard Ultra High Performance (UHP) was really annoying at times but heat and glare reduction was amazing.

Thought they'd fixed it with the new film and wanted to get your feedback about it. 😊

Again, you can have sport mode sound while driving in comfort. There I am not so clear why you had to modify the system.

Those are fake exhaust sound or ASD.

OP wanted the real sound.
