    Tints tomorrow

    Now that I'm no longer going to be buying LED tailights, the car is booked into Kevlon Autofilm in Bexley to have tints fitted first thing tomorrow.

    I've used the guy before and his work is really first class. The price is £175 for the rear doors, quarter-lights and rear window. Plus, for an extra £20, he will tint the top of the windscreen to obscure the DAB aerial, auto-dim mirror cables and mounts, which are a bit unsightly in bright sunshine.

    A4 3.0TDi SE Quattro Auto. Factory-fit: RNS-E/bluetooth; F/R parking sensors; full leather/heated front seats; cruise. Retrofit: Remap; Eibach 30mm lowering springs, RS4 RARB; MTEC drilled/grooved discs; 18" RS4 alloys; VW fan washers; Kinetic Digitizor DAB; Blackvue DR380 camera; front armrest; ambient lighting; white LED lights; autodim mirror; Cupra splitter; S-Line door blades; tints; UK pressed plates; MFSW; SDS; TPMS; LED Taillights and DRLs. RS aluminium pedals

    Hahah! Don't worry; no drug dealers here. This is a nice gentle tint to keep the back seat cool and private.

    Here's how it looked on my B6.

    Very good price indeed! What kinda tint are you going for?

    Tints are coming from next months pay for me, I've been somewhat undecided on whether to go with a sun strip or not - have done in the past but not sure whether the A4 will suit it. Be interested to see how yours looks.

    My B6 did have a sunstrip. I'll see if I can dig out a pic showing it.

    Here's the sunstrip on my B6. Of course, it was OEM, so the tint was graduated.

    Look forward to seeing results Jeff, what shade you going for? I had 20% done last month and think they're spot on. Sun strip will be a nice touch too

    Not sure what the percentage is (will check tomorrow) but it'll be the same shade as on the silver B6 in the pics earlier in the thread.

    it's an on-board camera. It records everything that happens in front of me, with sound, speed and GPS data. Dead handy for the police or insurance company if I'm ever in a dispute over who did what in a prang. It's called a Blackvue DR 380 HD, and it's supplied by one of our forum sponsors. Send a PM to Cruiser89 and he'll tell you everything you need to know.

    Cool, heard of a lot of guys running these in trucks now too, along with a camera facing the drivers.
    Do you get a reduction in your insurance premium for having these fitted?

    Honestly think I'm one of the few people who really dislikes tints, I just don't like the difference between the front and rear windows. Its maybe as I'm from Scotland so rarely see the sun anyway!!

    I don't think he takes the windows out, no. But he does heat-treat them to help bond the film to the glass. It's all completed, and the car is sitting on the drive in the sun to aid final drying out and curing. I'll take pics later.

    Reason I ask is I read this off his website...

    Yes….we take windows out and bake them…. when you collect your car you will be able to wind the windows up and down immediately !

    Never heard of anyone doing so, was just intruigued as I know Elite Car Care remove door cards and trim but never known anyone to remove the actual glass!

    Sorry, Joe, missed this yesterday. I haven't asked the insurance co. Maybe I should.

    Yeah, I did but not for long, back on the right side now

    All my cars had the glass removed including the ones Kev did. I believe he bakes under a heat lamp.

    I watched my Wife's Freelander being done and saw all the glass come out that isn't bonded in, including the rear door fixed panes and the tailgate window, very impressive, although Kev didn't do this one, he did remove the glass in my 8L some years ago.
