    I went for 25% at front and 50% for rear and back window.
    If you not wanting too dark then Id go 25% all round, You can get 15% but to me that was too light.

    I paid 140 for mine from a Asian guy who does it from his house in the mornings.He went germany to do a course and even does it outside if there isnt a massive breeze. He's the dogs doolallys,Everyone in Leicester goes to him. **** hot.

    Only problem I had was the rear screen where the bottom piece had slightly bubbled but lifetime gaurantee.

    Suppose that dont mean owt to you as your too far away.
    My mate paid 390 at ICS on his X5, found out the asian dude would have done it for 190!!!!

    NIKNAK!!!! if you decide to get yours done dont get the fronts any darker than the lowest level (15%) as GMP are currently clamping down on tints and have a little test they do at the road side. if its fails then you get a 30 fine and get issued with a prohibition notice which basically means until you get them removed you have to drive round with the windows down. I know they have tested the vectra traffic cars with factory tinted windows and these are just below legal level as standard.

    Whereabouts did you get them done, what price did you pay and were the windows taken out to apply the tints?

    Live in Hastings but always visiting parents in Thanet so Canterbury's perfect.

    Anybody hear of problems with tinting windows when a car isn't new and has scratches etc on the windows?
    I've heard they become really visible, which is the main reason (and cash, obviously) I have held off...

    Was done by Auto Films Direct - 0800 018 6232, on Thorndens Wood Road, between Herne Bay and Canterbury.
