    I've tinted mine mate. It's best to get the pro's to do it in my opinion, as you don't want any bubble or creases etc.

    If you've got an SRi you are already at the legal limit on the front windows. I've added a 50% tint to the front door windows and a 30% tint to all the rears. I've had traffic police give an appreciative nod at my car.

    I'd say always leave it to the professionals who hve the best quality film and glue and the right tools for the job. I've seen so many DIY efforts and there are always bubbles or creases... the only downside is that a good tint will cost anywhere around £200.

    leave it to the pro's m8 (well I did) - shop around you should be able to get a price for all 4 side and rear window for £200 or less. AND you should get something like a 5 year guarantee thrown in too.

    as a second option you could check and see how much it would cost you to have the pull-up blinds fitted (as in the picture of my car below) to the rear doors, assuming Vx can still do them.
