    I have a wee dog in the boot of my car. Also have a baby on the way and she will be here right in time for the sunshine and the squinting through windows.

    Looked into having them made to measure blinds fitted for about £80 but they are still blinds and can be pulled off .. dog will have a field day ripping it to pieces.

    Also thought about tints. Neater option, look nice, privacy, uv protection, keep baby and dog cool.

    If i go tints though what colour?! - I have a black A4 Avant. Do i get Limo or is that ridiculous? Dark Smoke, Medium Smoke?

    What are your opinions on it? ​

    Its MY car lol .. Mrs cant drive (only up the wall :D) lol .. so yeah night time is my only concern but i guess its no different to a transit where i only have the wing mirrors for company ..

    Are they actually good for the kids then? allow them to see out okay but nobody to see in?

    Any pics of yours?

    I've considered tints so many times but it's the wife who drives it most and reversing with tints at night...it won't end well.

    They look so good though!
