    Yeah 50/50 for me also. Limo tint against silver is too much imo.

    Whilst it's not really my thing, I do think the light/dark contrast is consistent on your car and actually works surprisingly well. A lighter tint would have introduced a third colour if you see what I mean.

    Looks good to me, if it was possible I'd happily swap my lighter tint for yours.

    Hi looks good to me love avants I'm wanting one for practical reasons but the Mrs says they remind her of funeral cars lol. Sorry to hijack your thread but what profile tyre are you running you look as low as I am at the moment but I get arch contact off the tyre on full lock just wondering if your the same or not.

    Looks too uneven for me too

    Is 50:50 the next step down?

    a 20% tint (a little bit lighter than limo) on the back windows would look good

    50/50 probably would've been a bit better.. I had limo black and couldn't see jack **** out the back windows at night lol

    Car looks really nice though mate!

    Lovely car, wheels work really well. Tints are just a shade to dark for me, otherwise looks mint.

    I'm with James, it's not what I would have chosen but because of the black/silver theme it works and actually, I quite like it.

    Oh no, am I a chav? lol

    The windows work well for contrast I'd say.
    Not keen on the darker lights though.

    Think I saw a 500w interior light on ebay....:)


    Looks ok imo, although i hate not being able to tell who's lurking behind me, some if those unmarked ones are hard enough to spot at the best if times

    8/half on front @ 35et
    9/half on rear @ 32et

    235/ 35/19
    245/35/19

    I did have rubbing on speed bumps and turning,but i called out some chap from arch enemy who pulled and rolled my arches.
    No issues now. Just very slight cracks,which was advised mgt happen as the underneath was rusted.

    Always assumed you ran spacers, bit worried now as mine has 10mm going up front and 15mm rear (8.5 ET35 235/35/19 all round currently), hopefully it will survive without arch work but not so sure now, suppose mine's a bit higher though so fingers crossed.

    I think the tints look ok, you just need to get the fronts done to match ;)

    To risky. Tinter says its illegal for any tints! Cld get 3 points apparently.
    Not worth the light tint as its hardly noticeably.
