    Hi

    i'm looking to get my a4 avant windows tinted. Can anybody recommend a good place in the west mids area, and what sort of price should I be looking at for all windows behind drivers, probably be shade less than limo. If any of you have got pics of recent work wold be good too.

    cheers

    I've just been quoted £160 by a place in Worcester.... Seems cheap to me. Fully guaranteed work etc. just seems too cheap!! Thoughts?

    Theres a place near Hall Green, just by the College Arms pub, ive not used them, but I always see cars outside there, pretty decent ones too, maybe worth checking them out.

    Theres a place called Motorguard as well in Aston, they do alarms and audio, Ive had a couple of alarms done by them and they were really good, im sure they used to do tinting, so maybe worth giving them a call as well.

    Just had my B7 A4 done at Tintcentre in Wolverhampton.

    Yours would be £159 all in including a lifetime guarantee.

    Great service, very pleased.

    Thinking of getting mine done soon. What shades are people going for? I'm thinking of getting a light smoke all round as I have a light coloured car.

    I have a black car and went for 25-30%

    It's not too dark at all, and pretty much matches the factory tints on the wife's E90.
