I have highly reflective tint on my Silver Coupe. I really like it.

By reflective, do you mean just reflective or mirrored? My dad has reflective tint on his Gunmetal Jetta GLI and it looks really nice. The difference between that and regular tint is that regular tint is basically plastic dyed black, and the reflective stuff my dad has is a film made out of metal alloys. I think that some dark reflective tint (5/25 or 38) would look very nice on a silver civic, especially if you got gunmetal rims. But mirror tint IMO looks stupid, and its very hard to see through. Sorry, I don't have any pics or anything like that. Hope that helps.

So dragoon, is your tint a mirror tint or "reflective" tint. Can someone post pics of the two so we can see the difference, because I didnt know there were two different kinds.

Also, what are those numbers "5/25 or 38" ? What do they mean?

First of all, 5/25 or 38 was my suggestion for the tint. Either 5 or 25 for the back windows and 38 for the front. The lower the number of tint, the darker it is. The number is the percent of light it lets through. So 5 is going to be 'limo' tint (you can see out, they can't see in) and 38 is just a darkening of the windows. When you go to get your windows done, just ask to see some examples. My place has a "wall o' tint" that shows you the different levels of darkness and reflection.
