    will see I only want the lot tinted during hot weather... after that hot weather i just want to be able to remove it quickly as i don't like the look of just tinting the rear and leaving the fronts normal... always hated it and won't stop hating on it... unless you can do all the windows... hell i've even been looking at some really light tint about 5 % that if you apply it looks like you have brown windows instead of blue/green... i might just go for that.

    My windows are already 30% tinted but on the back on all of my cars i had factory OEM privacy glass wich really is the best of the best, maybe i should swap my rear glasses and only tint the hatch but it will look like **** after that

    2 days ago, removed the remaining tints, cleaned the windows as best as i could, there is some tint left on the driver's glass since i was already tired of scrubbing the residue and removing door panels. There is like 25% glue left on the rear hatch, gave the headlights a small sloppy fast polish because they started to shed above the turn signal, just for the MOT as i will have them tinted with clear tint maybe in a few weeks.
    Today the car passed the MOT with flying colors, the inspector was amazed by the car overall mechanical feel, the difference between wheel brakes are within 1-3% wich is better than like 90% of the cars according to him. Even he was happy about the car, they don't get that unique cars very often and he really loved the smoothness of the engine. The only thing they mentioned was the rear crankshaft seal leak but they noticed that my temporary plates will expire soon so they gave me a pass since they know it will get fixed soon anyway. They also complained why i didn't have LPG stickers in the windshield , this is the 3rd car with lpg, the other 2 didn't have lpg stickers and there was no issue with that so i glued the 2 lpg stickers just to have something to peel off .
    PS: i managed to remove the hatch tint without breaking the defroster, or at least not at first glance, we will see if it will defrost in the winter or not
    PPS: the car looks very ugly without the tint, i really need to get the rear tinted or replace the glass on the doors and only tint the hatch but i'll see what i will do about this when i'll get a quote for the tint since used privacy glass are very cheap

    mine are tinted also by factory but no privacy glass in the back... which i prefer but kept looking and found these blinds that I'll probably go for... they seem to be better suited to my liking.

    They might be but with privacy window that have UV filters it's much better to keep the car cool during the summer.

    Mate I just don't want to add any tint film to the windows, UV blocking is nice but not a requirement although it will help keep things cool.. did see some polycarbonate tinted ones that fit the same way but are way more expensive and have one let down... they are solid so no air circulation.... (a shame if they'd just perforated them that problem would be solved)

    Will see what i end up with ... it won't be tint though.

    Maybe replace the windows with the privacy ones, you should find plenty of them at the junkyards and cheaper than the ones from romania.

    I finally found the pics from the tires. Here they are. I have also replaced the rubber pedals and the 2 rear tires out of wich one of them was leaking air for quite a while now. This was the first tyre shop where the nuts were tightened by torque wrench. It's an old friend of mine so to get to his garage i had to do a detour of around 10 kilometers. Totally worth the drive.
    PS: ignore my dirty nails but i couldn't get all of the mom's engine gunk
