It's been said here many times that the mirror doesn't last as long. I think either would look good on red though, but my vote is on regular grey/black tint.

Same here, I would just go black. Silver looks good on black or silver cars.

In my opinion, the mirror or colored tints are a "trendy" type of thing. It looks good at first and then the novelty wears out and you wonder why the hell you ever did it. Black never goes out of style. Once you go black you never go back!

I have limo tint on all my back windows (solid black) and 35% on the front 2.
