    I hate to spoil ure fun guys, but the people at VOSA have made it clear that both drivers and passenger windows are not to have any window tint at all. I fit window film for a living and this law has now been written in stone.

    I got my window tints done (bristol) for £250 and iam very happy with them. The back one is 10% and the sides are 30%, they are not to dark. I see some cars and they cant see out which is crazy, but i have had mine in for over 12 months and never had any problems at all. I wouldnt do it yourself, it looks **** and will take you forever.

    I remember my mate getting his cab done some 16 yrs ago, he had the darkest black and all but the front windscreen was tinted, cost about £150 back then and you couldn't see him behind the wheel.

    If anyone wants to try themselves, the tip for the side windows is this, wet window with soapy water, apply film, draw the water out from the pillar end with rubber blade, then trim 5mm off of the top so it doesn't foul the door frame once wound right up, cant tell you how to trim the rear window to get a good looking job I'm afraid, thats where a pro comes in handy.
