    Tints

    So the modding is about to start..... window tints going in on Monday

    Whats your thoughts, I usually go limo (black), but now thinking dark smoke would look best against the white

    Dark smoke gets my vote Mac, if your getting back & front done.
    Dark smoke also, if your only getting the back tinted, as it blends better with the slight tint the front already has. IMO

    Another one for dark smoke, that's what I went with. If you are fronts done I would have light smoke on the front.

    +1 for Dark Smoke on the rear and a lighter smoke on the fronts.

    That's what I plan to add on mine

    I've got factory tints and they're dark enough for me.

    Main reason for the post is to say that if you've got B&O then ensure the electrics are properly protected as I've seen posts in the US where the water used in applying the tint has fried their ICE

    I had mine done with the B&O and had no issues. Really helps the look of the car too, a well worth it mod I'd say!

    I had the factory fitted tint on a previous car, which was enough. It's personal choice at the end of the day. Not sure what colour they are, light smoke maybe?

    My current car doesn't have tint and I am looking into changing that. Just trying to decide if to go for the film option or replace the actual glass.

    My guess will be 30% to 35% but it may change from country to country due to legislations

    You're allowed up to a 30% tint on the fronts to stay legal I believe. That's why I went with it on my fronts.
