    Default Window tinting? How dark...

    Im looking at gettign the windows tinted next week (Proper job not DIY).


    However i am unsure how dark to go.

    As it stands im looking at Medium Tint (you can just about see through the windows at this point)

    But im not sure how dark to go? Does anyone have any suggestions/Pictures of the darkness to go.

    My car is Black as well (Like an oven yesterday...)

    Thanks

    Purely from a legal POV, watch the fronts. Most standard windows are already at the 70% limit so tinting them can cause issues. Look great though, especially on a black car so go as dark as you like on the rear!

    Yeah, i had no plans on doing the fronts due to the legal issue.

    So my plan is to just do the rears.

    85% is looking quite likely now.

    Just hope it aint to expensive lol!!

    Thats what mine should cost approx.

    Gonna call them tommorow.

    First quote was £250, the guy is amazing (takes the window out etc) but er sod that for a laugh lol

    Mate had his ST done for £100 so i reckon £130-150 would be about right from that place.
