    Pics of tinted windows wanted

    Right i've got mine booked in next week for some tints. currently i've decided to have the back blacked out and the front are going to be done 35%...

    Does anyone have any pictures of what i'm thinking of having done and possibly and recommendations with pictures of what other shades to have?

    Regards

    Dave

    Re: Pics of tinted windows wanted

    Hey there mate, I got my tints done a year back and it was 35%front and 45-55% rear. It's the toughened glass so it's hard to break from the outside, and it has a slight magnesium effect which looks nice in the sun and makes the car darker than it is by reflecting most of the light but in normal weather it looks normal and not too dark at all. Hope it helps

    @ danej

    Did you have to remove the front tints?

    I've had medium smoke tints all round for over 2 years and have never been stopped.

    The new law states that you can not have any window tint on the front side windows. So just be carefull as you could be made to have it removed.

    Re: Pics of tinted windows wanted

    ok thanks for the pics guys. after having recent talks with the window tinter i think i'm going for 35% all round...

    Markb he mentioned about not been able to have them in the front so i guess i'll take the risk..

    Cheers

    Don't do it!!

    I had medium tints all round and got pulled by VOSA made to take them off within 10 days. Believe me you will be well p*ssed off if you pay for them and this happens.

    You may be lucky like ImolaS3 but then again you may not....

    Why would you want tints anyway. I think titnts are for cars your embarrased to be seen in, or for real ugly people!

    Gutted for you.

    I've got mine done, but I hoping I get away with it. Although if I do go somewhere, where cops are likely to be I drive with the front 2 windows down.

    Re: Pics of tinted windows wanted

    Police in London are generally cool about tints, I had my old 1.8 which had 55% black tints on the front and 75%-100% rear. Never got asked once, even though they were illegal. Yet my bro gets hassled up in Birmingham (even though he then legal) cause they're PETTY and got nothing better to do. I know this is going off the topic but, Honestly the police sometimes really wind me up when they would rather spend 8 and half hours booking someone in for the smallest offence, rather than going after murderers, robbers etc..

    No...it's because it's illegal.

    Just like no front number plate...
    Or no side repeaters...
    Or no cat...

    In my opinion, anyone caught should get charged...the rules shouldn't apply to some and not others...

    If you speed and get caught...you get done.
    If you have overly tinted windows and get caught...you get done.
    Same with no number plate or side repeaters or cat...

    Just because fashion is stupid...doesn't mean you shouldn't get done.
    The more the merrier, I say.

    And pimp tints look stupid...

    They do have valid issues such as visability from the front windows, which makes sense, but I believe they were good at having 35% front, they're goin a bit too much with no tints at all. Plus the majority of cops seem to be nice enough to me to never complain about it, they actually like the car and start askin questions

    Slightly off topic,
    I had YOI 313 on my first red 911, squeezed up to look like YOBB.

    The police loved that one and i got pulled 5 times in a week.

    Hardly...but you can take them off when it gets dark, or hammers down with rain.
    You can't remove pimp tints in the same way...now can you?

    Or a tinted visor...that too was legal...a light tint. A bit like car windows really....
    Same applies to sunglasses under your helmet...take them off.
    You can't just take a black visor off...
