    The rear view mirror has broken on the clear side of the spectrum if you know what I mean. No matter during the day I wear shades, sorted yeah but at night it's like mother ship coming in to land behind me! I was thinking about tinting the back window rather than replace the rear view mirror. What do you think?

    I guess the rear window is removed to fit the tinted film?
    How much roughly would it cost to tint just the rear window?

    A replacement mirror can be found on ebay for around a tenner and its a simple twist the old off and on with the new. It will be more to do the tint and you still have a dodgy mirror. if you do the tint you should do the side rear windows aswell i think.
