    Tinting looks good mate if you get it right, my favourite is the back 3 windows in a light/medium tint...that what I have on mine (3 door). Sportback will obviously be back 5 or whatever it is! :icon_thumright:


    Definately dont do all round or limo black, cheapens the car IMO.

    got tints on mine.
    They were on it when I bought it and I was going to take them off but have found them brilliant for security purposes if having to leave stuff in the car (i.e. mountain bike) as you cant even see its in there.

    Light Smoke all around is great imo.

    Not too keen on the presidential look, especially on light coloured cars.

    I just went for a dark smoke on the rear 3 windows - looks very OE.

    There are legal and safety (i.e. killing us motorcyclists) implications of tinting front windows much more than they come from the factory, so I'd recommend leaving them as is...

    Tints will look good just don't do the sunstrip as that look chavy to me.

    Consider the recommendations and weight up what makes more sense and then decide which one you want to do :icon_thumright:

    I've just had the windows tinted on my Black Sportback, 35% from B-pillar back. I'm very happy with the result as I was trying to get a similar look to the factory spec. I've posted some pictures on another thread but I'll post them here if you want to see how it looks?

    Think it's 35%, but I could be wrong....

    I could have had 25% which was very 'light', or 50% which was a piece 'darker'

    I had my rear 3 windows tinted a couple of weeks back. It was a fairly dark tint, basically as close to the factory privacy glass as I could get and I'm really pleased with the outcome. I was worried it might look chavvy but I think it really suits the car.
