    dont think i would ever do a blower unless i did some sort of built engine but i dont have that kind of money
    Why do you feel the need to build the engine? There are plenty of supercharged s65's running around just fine without a built motor

    Yes, that's why I went with a high quality ceramic tint.

    Do you have any pictures of this ceramic tint? I have a quality tint on my car, but have been wanting a slight change in appearance. I saw a highly modified car in European Car (I think it was a TT lambo, but don't recall) - and in the article, it mentioned that the guy put a ceramic "tint" on the windshield to prevent pitting at high speeds. I am not sure what they meant - as tint is on the inside of the car, but that's what they said. I

    t looked amazingly cool and very unique, that's why I am asking. Also, I am not sure why - but the glass on my M3 is very soft compared to my last M3 - it is pitted all over from sand and whatnot. I am thinking this is something separate from what you are referring to - but maybe not.

    Why? Get an exhaust, a bolt-on evolve kit & run it at ~7 psi, and some upgraded rod bearings & you're looking high-500 WHP, maybe even low 600

    there are some tints that are exterior. and if it says it protects against pittin, i would assume ceramic does as well. kinda like the race films real race cars and motorcycles use, just peels a layer off the top when it gets bad

    Aye - yeah, I want some, but can't find it. So it goes on the outside - which makes much more sense... Any idea who makes this stuff?

    To prevent pitting it would have to be on the outside as how else would it do that?

    Yeah, it was definitely on the outside - only thing that makes sense. Click here to enlarge

    I cannot find it no matter what search terms I use - I have a feeling a lot of people would like it unless it was insanely expensive. I guess it was because he was either using it or driving it in the desert.

    When I take a photo of my windshield with the flash on, it is highly exaggerated - so it shows much worse than it is, but I will have to post one to show how bad it is. I don't know if it's just my car/windshield or what - it's really bad compared to any other car I have owned. Average speed is higher in this one, but it's more than that.
