    Hi.

    I want my avant doing as well. Have you had any quotes? I spoke with http://www.empire-tinting.co.uk/ and got prices of 300! so will have to wait a bit i think!

    Yeah a decent tint will set you back 300 or so. I've had a couple of quotes around that price - I only want a really subtle tint so I've not bothered yet...

    Yeah 250-300 is about right tbh as I had my S4 B6 Avant done by my usual guys down in surrey, they did all but screen, very good I might add, very.

    TBH mate I live in East Sussex/Kent area so I happily go there given the quality of work even if a drive, but I've asked someone near you to comment on Yorkshire fella.

    Where is Yorkshire, as Empire Tints are J21 of M62? Perhaps get a better deal if we went to get both? A bit of a group buy

    I use Dapaa tints, they are based in Leeds and you will get a lot better price. Possibly 200 for all round. Give them a call.

    300 seems a bit steep TBH. I paid 150 last year to have my RS6 Avant done, that included a light smoke to the front and a medium smoke at the rear. No use to you guys as I'm up in Scotland but gives you an idea of price brand for an avant.

    Yeah they fine. They seemed dodgy when I first met them but have used them 3 times now so says it all really. Give them a shout and tell them you have been recommended by me, you will get a cheap price. They just did my new S3 a few days ago.

    There is a guy outside of York on the A64 who quoted me 150 to do my A4 Avant.

    Not got round to having it done yet, but seemed pretty good.

    Any details for these guys? I am in West Sussex and thinking about getting my A4 Avant done.

    Any other recomendations for people in the W Sussex area?

    job done, and i can certainly say i recommend dapaa tints. the guys were very professional and explained everything they were doing. it took them just short of an hour and half to do the full car and at 179.00 you really cant go wrong and as an added bonus i got to go for a spin in the bosses porsche boxster S!

    I did both the A3 & the A4 cab myself. There is a chap who does the film pre cut on ebay called Luxico film. Dark smoke rear & light smoke front, about 50 quid for the kit. It is really easy to fit if you take your time & the pre cut stuff saves any messing around putting it on the outside first. Highly recommended
