    Default nearly got ripped off on window tint lucky escape i think

    had my car booked in this morning to get windows tinted so i turned up at 9:30 its all locked up so stood about waiting for 10 mins and then phoned the number up someone answered sounded like i just woke him up he told me he was at the hospital checking on some work he done their yesterday ok i thought.
    so i sat in my car waiting a 4x4 pulled up came up to me and said r u getting your windows done as they messed mine up full of dust and bubbles.
    so this put me on edge a bit he went so i looked around and outside their was 2 cars with tints on so went out for a closer look one had loads of tiny airbubbles in when i looked closer it was dust and the other had a kink in the tint on the edge where they havent heat shrunked it properally so i got back in my car and drove off lucky escape i think i could of got it done and then had battle on my hands to get it done right

    i think the next tinting place i go to get it done i want to see their work area and possable have a quick look at them doing it a lot of cowboys out their

    tell me about it ive just been on the phone to another company been doing it for years they qouted me £200 +vat so its going to be around £240 which is £40 more than the last place but this company has invited me down to look at samples and they said it was fine to have a quick look round seam much organised so its worth paying that little bit more

    £240? that seems expensive to me! I had rears, quarter panels & back window done for £120, and it was an extra £50 for the fronts (which I didn't get done because of the rules about front windows! )

    But it's quite a way to come to Luton to get them done!lol
