    Default Window Tints where to go ?

    Hi everyone

    i know i know its another window tint thread .....

    I`ve spent an hour going through 15 pages using the search function to try and find the answer , i`m hoping someone can help ..

    I`m looking at getting some tints to my silver 06 plate Hatch so any pictures of your silver vecs would be a bonus if you can post a few up

    Now the Question i have is.. Last time i got my tints done on my vec b about 8 years ago i went to tintr in nottingham which is a bit of a drive but at the time there where not that many places doing tints and i wanted a decent job done, now what i need to know is where is the best place to go preferbly not too far from the north west ( i dont mind a bit of a run out ) to get them done that wont give you the white dots on the rear window ?

    I`ve decided on 50% rears and a very light smoke on the front just to get rid of the green tinge and i`m also looking at getting a sunstrip done too

    I know i have tint wizard which is not far from me but i have never had any dealings with them or seen any cars done by them .

    Like i have said i dont mind a bit of a drive to get a perfect job done.

    can anyone point me in the right direction

    cheers

    I had mine done at Dapaa tints in leeds, maybe too far from you but I have the white dots, didnt know you can get it without them as the tints goes over the raised parts. Pics for you below if you wanna see.

    Sorry don't know what the % works out at. The rears are 1 from limo black and the fronts are just a light "legal" tint as they put it. Obvioulsy just a bit darker than standard on ours as they are already max from factory but I think it looks good!

    Cheers mate

    I had 35% put on my silver omega and was told that this was the level that VW's come out of the factory (Passatt CC's...) and is just enough so that on a reasonable day you can stand on one side of the car and just see through and out the other side.

    In the summer I think I should have gone for 20% but then in the winter it is plenty as it can feel a bit like a van.

    I really would think twice about bothering with 50% tint.



    ANY tints on the fronts are ILLEGAL - run it at your own risk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
