    Default What Tints

    I've got my black Vectra SRI booked in for tinting, they are coming to do it on sunday morning, but im still not sure what to have done! At first i was thinking of just having 50% (very light) tints all around, but ive spoke to a few people and they said that would be too light at the back!

    My brother has had it done to his astra G with 50% all around and at first you couldn't tell it had been done, took a few months to settle in and darken. So now im thinking 65% dark (medium tint) on the back windows and 50% light tint on the fronts.

    Dont want to go any darker than 50% on the front cos im sure ill have to pull em off in a few weeks anyway when the local cops see em! but thats made me think, i mite aswell get darker at the back then, but then i didn't want too much of a "step" in the side windows of the car from dark to light!

    HELP!!! lol does anyone have any pics or advice and i need to make my mind up today as they are coming tomorrow morning!

    Have the light tint down the sides and the next shade on the tailgate, as that will make the rear side windows look darker anyway as thats what I did on mine
