    I've just ordered a new sprint blue S3 with privacy glass and was wondering if someone has any pics I could see?

    I'm not sure I've done the right thing reading a few posts, but haven't actually seen a sprint blue with privacy glass.

    What are peoples opinion on the rear tints on the S3?


    Cheers.

    The rear tints are great - well my kids think so, it cuts down glare for them no end.

    Wayside has a Moro blue with tints (pics in thesticky thread at the top).

    Hmm- not a fan at all i'm afraid:puke2:

    Each to thier own, but as you can only have the rears tinted it just looks odd to me almost hearse like :sadlike:

    The S3 windows have a fairly heavy tint as standard anyway.

    Not too keen on the factory tints... too too dark on the rear windows.
    Seen a sprint blue with factory tints :no: just wasnt working spoilt the colour of the car.
    If i was personally going for tints on my one they'd have to be light tints all the way round.
    I seen a Phantom Black one with fairly dark ones and it looked nice suits them... but just not the sprint blue.

    As said above - they do actually offer some benefits if you are carrying rear seat passengers - mine is used as the family car most of the time, and it has been a godsend having the rear windows done.

    I guess I am coming from practicality over aesthetics view point though.
