    So far so good, window tints done and might I say very well indeed, not a single issue or bubble. Great guy too and very helpful/friendly.
    i do not work for him nor do I know him let alone remember his name, just thought I would give the guy a well deserved memtion. His company is in Camberly and he does vinyls, tints remaps etc and just started out on his own at 21!

    So anyways he gave me forum discount which is a bonus. So mods so far are, window tints, remap (shark) and full led bulb conversion (exl rear clusters)

    Naughty why? Lol!! The rears are fine as for the fronts they will coincide with law if done. Wouldn't pay money to have them done only to be told to rip them off again. Thanks for the info though but already had it :hi:

    From reading that VOSA document it looks like as long as the tints allow at least 70% light through the windscreen and front side windows then they are ok.

    It also looks like it would be illegal for a company to provide anything darker !! Presumably they would have the equipment to check the tint levels applied by the manufacturer and be able to work out the maximum addition allowable ?

    I stand corrected. Just I know some companies won't even tint front windows at all.

    Just re-read it {yes I know, sad b'stard ! ) and actually the windscreen must allow 75% light through not 70%. Side windows are ok with 70%.

    Factory tints are at the max. on screen and front doors, so any more makes them illegal......

    The factory windscreen and front glass are already tinted out to the legal limit, although i have tinted the windows all round the car which helps me as my arms burn on sunny days with the standard windows. not legal or advised but its how i have it.

    I am looking at having this done on my S3 and have been quoted £140,which sounds reasonable.Anyone else had their windows tinted this time of year or should i wait until after winter.
    The guy who i spoke to says it wont be a problem but will take 2/3days longer to completely dry out..
