    I am having mine done from the B pillar back so just the rears.Have been quoted £130 for this,but know it will be a good job as my local Audi dealer uses them.

    As far as I know, the standard factory tint is the maximum allowed !

    Any tint on the fronts darker than factory standard will be illegal & a nice policeman can make you remove it or have your car prohibited until you do ..it's not worth it. Maybe consider a clear film on the front for theft protection?

    I'm looking to get mine done too, how long did it take? I can't seem to find any reputable places closer to London but don't mind travelling for a decent job :)

    B pillar back looks best I think. I'm not fan of limo black out either but not sure what your looking for

    I'm getting mine done on Friday, from the pillar back.
    you can legally get the front two windows done but they have to allow in 75% off light, where as the back three can be blacked out.

    B pillar back is all I'm getting done, I agree I think it looks better.. I'm only looking to get light tints (around 35% to 40% darkness)... It would be good to get some pics once they've been done
