    Hello all.

    Im going to be tinting my windows front and rear in a few weeks. (I do it myself to save the pennies)

    Has anyone got pics of their tints and shade details to help me choose what shade to go?


    Im thinking dark smoke rear light from or light all round but would like to help choosing.


    Thanks in advance :) Ryan

    I went for 80% on the rear 1/4s and tailgate and 60% up front

    Sometimes looks darker than others

    I personally think I went a little to dark on the fronts from a "blatantly obvious, mr plod" point of view. Especially as the Essex police are pretty hot at catching up with things like this

    On a styling side I like it tho

    I kept standard on the front and went for factory matching tinting in the back and hatch. Looks mint, is legal and not too dark on my Ming with black recaro's.

    S3 Dave yours look nice but I think its too dark at the rear. Does anyone have light smoke tints on a silver a3/s3?

    After I got a prohabition order for my tints the retest showed 75% VLT on the front side windows, so around a 25% factory tint on the front of my S3,

    I agree daves looks very dark on the rear. I may do light all over or just slightly darker rears on my silver s3
