    Default Window Tints

    Hi,

    Thinking about getting my windows tinted. I know it is illegal, but keen to get all except the windscreen done. Any ideas where, and how much?

    Couple of my mates have been to Protint Uk in Trowbridge.
    There is/used to be a place called South Coast Tints in Southampton that might be nearer for you.
    Looking around 200-250 at a guess for the whole car.

    Is it better to have a tinting company who remove the windows from the car or one that fits them in situ.

    Don't think it matters, but I didn't think anyone took them out anymore, too much hassle.

    This is the e-mail I got back from an enquiry.



    Hi
    To tint your car is £220.00 with the 10% january discount.

    if you would like to book in please email back your name full address and contact telephone number or phone 07799626620 to arrange a booking date and time.


    • We remove all the door glass windows so we can tint the whole glass not just what you can see, (like most tint shops) this application method not only makes a cleaner install but makes you door glass six times harder to penetrate and holds the glass in place if smashed.
    • We have in stock 5 different shades of film ranging from limo black to a very light smoke.
    • We use the latest thermal bond technology, which means you don’t have to wait to use your windows; on completion of your car you can open your windows straight away,(most tint shops make you wait 4-5 days to let it dry).
    • We factory cut all windows so no gap at the top of the windows.
    • We tint rear windows in one piece (most tint shops use two or more strips).
    • None of your time wasted as you do not have to leave your home or work as we come to you.
    • The install can take as little as 2-3 hrs start to finish.


    • All our work is to the highest standards and carries a lifetime warranty.
    Thank you for taking the trouble to email and we hope this is of some help to you.
