Firstly let me say that I have searched the internet and found this to be one of he most informative Mercedes Benz forum sites. Have been reading for a month or so and have finally become a member.
I recently purchased a 1994 E220 Mercedes Benz Coupe, silver in colour. I would like other forum user's opinion on whether or not to tint the windows on the car. I have noticed that it does have a slight blue hue in the glass already. The car is in absolute pristine condition and I don't want to make a mistake and wreck the vehicle's look and/or authenticity.
Welcome aboard! To answer your question about tinting, I believe it looks great right now but it would also look reaaaally nice with the tints as well. So... it's up to you! It's personal preference my friend.

generally speaking,i don't like to tint and think yours would look better without it and also less suspicious and with more taste,....however,because of the fact that we live in florida and we have pretty strong sun most of the time,we went ahead and tinted. it most definately and without a doubt protects the interior and keeps it looking new much longer. also,most cars here have tint so it doesn't really stand out. we also use one of those windshield/dash protectors all the time,even though it's a bit of a PITA and takes a few extra seconds getting out every time we park.
...did i mention that our interior still looks new.
also,make sure they do it right,..if not,it can easily add extra friction every time the window goes up and down,increasing wear on the regulators and motors etc..
