    how do
    Just had my windows tinted.
    the fronts let 50% light through and the rears let 35% of light through.

    at times it doesn't look dark at all but then other times its really dark

    let me know what you think, and what else i should do?

    Were you up a tree for the first pic? :)

    Looks smart mate, tints really set the car off!

    As for things to do, you though about wheels and lowering. New rear lights, otics grille, not that I'm trying to bankrupt you! :jester:

    nice tints, just had mine all done on the rear went for 25% ...

    good luck on the fronts like 911 just said the old bill dont mess around now if they pull you up, there ripped staight off at the roadside or there take your car away and look after for a while untill you sort it out !!!!

    Just had my mate over who bought my old Dolphin Grey A3 and his car looks just like yours. He has his tinted too - I think he has 30% all round.

    Some new rear lights and a Lamin-X kit and you'll be sorted. Oh and lowering too maybe.

    i got pulled over the second day of having them and i wasnt alowed to put them down because theres a drying time but when i got pulled i quickly put all the windows down taking the risk.:moa: The police never clocked on so i got away with the tints still in place. The tints were fine after pulling up the windows to which i was happy about.

    That's right. I remember posting those pics.

    Check out the facelift taillights link in my siganture for photos of the new lights.

    That's not true.

    You're allowed nothing on the windscreen, but can have up to 30% tint (70% of light transferrence) on the front side windows.

    The problem is, most newer cars come with semi-timnted front windows anyway. In my Astra it actually said in the corner of the glass "Pilkington X934936" (random code) then "70% light transfer min".

    well, he was either wrong, or was basing that comment on the fact that most front windows are already tinted.
