    Default Bit of advice regarding window tinting

    Hey all, I'm looking to have my windows tinted but dont know where to go, I deff dont want to be doing it myself, so I need somewhere local to take it to (I live in St Helens, Merseyside) or even a company that comes out and does it.
    Does anyone have any reccomendations of somewhere?
    Also, Im planning on getting the rear and front tinted, but am I setting myself up for loads of police pulls by having the front done?
    Obviously is wouldnt be any darker than the legal limit, but Ive heard they pull cars regardless ?

    Pretty sure that the Vec is at the darkest legal tint on the front already. Many window tinters just won't do it and yeah you'd probably have to end up ripping them off within a month. Not worth the hassle imo

    Is it really, mine seems to have no tint whatsoever? Hmm and there was me thinking Id get away with Light Smoke.. Ah well, just the back it is then.

    I got all my windows done on my previous car a civic type r and got told by the window tinter its ilegal but it was my choice and he wouldnt take responsibility for it if i got pulled.Anyway i got him to do all the windows and in nearly 2 years didnt get pulled for it.Iam intending to get my vec done by the same guy and ive been quoted £160 for complete car.And alot of places WILL do all windows but its on your head at the end of the day....Plus it looks much better,always thought getting the back 3 windows done looks pants...
