    I hate silver tints! And totally agree with your local tinter, it would look very cheap and tacky. If you really want the van look how about getting the rear windows vinyl wrapped silver to match your paint work?

    My other half's A4 had dark tints all round until I told her they were a) **** and b) highly illegal and made her take the front ones off. So, it currently has very dark smoke on the rear (for the kids... apparantly) however it makes it look like she sells drugs to underage teenage mums. I'm waiting for her to go out so I can attack it with the heat gun and scraper. Graduating towards a light smoke at the rear is so much more classy.

    I agree I wouldn't go for silver but go for a dark tint.

    Did a quick photoshop of the rear windows tinted and I think it looks awesome.
