    Smile Window Tints

    Morning All,

    I'm after my 4 door windows and boot tinted. Nothing jet black just a nice smoked tint. Just got a quote from 'tintsntweaks' for all 5 fitted for £250 inc VAT. Does that seem a good/bad price. Im near newcastle so any recommends of good tinting places would help.

    Thanks

    Steve.

    Hi Steve
    Never used these myself a m8 had his done there and they looked ok.

    Pro-Tint, at the end of Byker Bridge Newcastle

    There's that many companys doing tints now but £250 sounds about right.

    I've just fitted OE sunshades in my estate, and unless you are actually looking directly at the blinds from outside you wouldn't know the car wasn't tiinted, MarkM has also just fitted the blinds to his car, His also looks like its been tinted, And they are also removable, http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread...ight=sunshades
    and Cheaper, at around £120 delivered.. I've had nearly all of my cars tinted, but now i prefer the blinds

    Steve, your front windows will already be at the legal limit matey (70&#37.

    It really isn't worth doing the fronts anymore as the police and Vosa have been told to crack down and check cars nowadays. I suppose the next step is for the MOT testing stations to be told to check and fail any car that doesn't have to correct transparency.

    My wife refused to drive my old Vec C at night as she said she couldn't see our properly. I had 50% on the fronts on top of the 70% manufacturers glass, so I'm not sure what the actual tint was.

    Exclamation Tints

    Steve,
    The best option if you are going for tints is to make your back windows limo black. This will make your fronts appear tinted aswell.

    The police and VOSA use a device called "Tintman". This measures the amount of light passing through the window. Any tint placed on your front windows even on a light smoke will make them illegal. Following this a prohibiton order can be placed on your vehicle which means your car stays where it is and gets recovered. Then you get a long walk home and a hefty fine.

    I'd smash the front windows and drive home, gotta be cheaper than paying the fine and recovery costs...

    No Problem, Pm MarkM and ask him about the car blinds if you want any more info, I've got the Estate ones but they'll be more or less the same..
