    Window tints

    Given that 30% tint is all that's legally allowed on the front windows what's a good level to have on the rears - don't want total blackout.

    why dont you buy a set of sunblinds, not the crap stick on sort but the fully tailored removable versions.

    I had a set on my mk5 golf 5dr and they worked a treat, on in summer and off in winter, less than half the price of tinting and removable for sale when the car gets sold, simple!

    Here's a link. UV Car Shades (Set of 6) A4 Avant 2000-07 - AUDI A4 2000-04, AUDI A4 2004-08 - Vanstyle

    I'll be getting a set for mine as soon as i get paid!

    Just looked at the site,the price looks excellent at under a ton.Only one concern - the tailgate shade comes in two parts so it looks like there's a black frame running down the middle of the window.

    Honestly fella, you don't notice it from outside, hence why i'm up for another set.

    It gives a nice tinted effect from the outside too, i reckon comparable to a 50% and no grief from plod either lol

    I have looked at these also, they look a good deal and a member on here has them and when he came over to mine i thought it was tints, just not sure if it will look odd without a drivers side one where as tints are all round, but as i am one to remove all mods once the car goes up for sale you will be able to recoup some of your outlay.

    I think i'd be happy to leave the fronts as they are and just buy the shades for the rear glass.
