    Has anyone got a Sportback with privacy glass? And if so, could they post up some pictures please? I'm interested to see what it looks like and which glass panels are tinted.

    I've seen one at the dealers, only the back passenger and rear quarter windows are tinted.

    Umpteen places will do the whole car though.

    Couple of blokes have had their (non-company) cars done here.

    For an idea of cost,bloke got his entire Celica done for £ 180,so a Sportback might be around £250-£280 ?

    Hmmm, tinted windows...Scottish weather... night driving.....

    Sounds like a nice recipe for pulling out in front of some one if you ask me.

    Blimey, does that guy sleep while he's driving? Have you seen how far back his backrest is tilted?

    Lol, a guy I used to work with used to drive like that only worse. You couldn't get anybody in the seat behind him as he'd virtually have the drivers seat fully reclined and drove while just about laying down. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Did he use phrases such as 'I is a bad boy, init'?

    That seems to be the vocab limit of the reclined seat possy round here (usually not visible through the tints)

    I'm enquiring because I am considering some tint for my Sportback, but only for the rear passenger windows, quarterlight and rear glass. I wanted to see what the Audi privacy glass option looks like, so if I go ahead with it, the aftermarket work I get done will at least be sympathetic to the factory option.

    And it's not for the pimped-out look! We've got a baby on the way and I can't stand the look of those window blinds with the silly smiley faces and glass-suckers. I'd only go for a light or medium smoke as well.

    Hi there

    The links to any pics on this thread seem to no longer be available.

    Can anyone post a link to a pic of a sportback with privacy glass please?

    Many thanks

    I was at my local Audi dealer yesterday and they had a black sportback in the showroom with the privacy glass.

    If no one else posts up a pic I'll try and get one at the weekend.

    Ben: Did you go off the idea of having yours tinted?

    That would be perfect as that's the colour I am thinking of ordering.

    If you get chance I would be greatful, but don't make a special trip, I am not going to order until post Xmas.

    Cheers

    Be careful with aftermarket tints, Bell Direct will only insure cars with factory tints so you may limit your insurance options.

    Take a look in my gallery. The factory tints on my Luxembourg spec car are rear side, rear quarter and boot glass. It looks pretty dark from outside, but doesn't seem so dark from inside. I think the tint level is about right and I have no problem to see out the back. I took tints instead of the factory option pull-out blinds that you might also consider.

    Hi Benw123, I was recommended to the Car2Tint by the sales guy at Huntingdon Audi, apparently they have all their aftermarket work done there. They quoted me £160 for side and rear on Sportback but I haven't had mine done yet, paintwork repair first then tints pehaps. http://www.car2tint.co.uk

    Hi MB, I just kind of forgot about it! The idea was to get it tinted for the baby more than anything, although for now his car seat has a cover to block out the sun.

    Thanks Brian - that's a fantastic price too, and it just so happens I recently had a service at Huntingdon whom I was very pleased with. If they use these guys it's worth a call! Will look into it.

    I had Claire B-Class done for the same reason. Not keen on having those kiddie blind things stuck to the windows....

    I've got some factory tints. Back windows and rear screen. It's pretty dark. I'll get some pics up later as i can't use photobucket at work :sadlike:
     
  31. Thanks ashman! Do you know what sort of percentage or tint I would need to match it? Example. Medium smoke 35%
