    Tint advice needed

    Not had tints before.. would be grateful for advice!

    Im NOT looking for blacked out 'pimp' style, but am considering something a little stronger than standard.

    The car is an Atlas Grey A4 sport, standard sport bodykit, I think a medium tint should suit this well..

    so:
    What do I look for?
    Whats the legal position? (I would prefer to be legal)
    Wheres a good place to get this done?(Southampton/Bournemouth area ideally)
    Can anyone post sample pics of different percentages?
    anyone already tinted an atlas grey a4 saloon?

    Thank you!

    Legal position is you cannot have any further tint added to the front driver & passenger windows at all. If you do and get stopped you will get a Ł30 fine.

    you can have any level on the rear windows.

    I would say 50% on the fornt, if you want to take the risk. Then 30% on all other windows.

    I have done this on my last 6 cars and they look great.

    hmmm.. ok, didnt know you couldnt tint the fronts! thanks for that!

    this is the kind of look i was thinking of: A quick bit of photshoppery, according to which this should be about a 35% tint sides and rear..



    any comments?

    that looks lighter than 35%, it looks almost 50% prefer that to 35% now even though i have 35% which i think after the initial few months doesn't look as classy as 50%
    i've had tints a year and a half on it i'm thinking of decreasing the fronts to 50% to stop future hastle
