If your willing to travel to Cardiff my mate could do yours. Or if you have a decent size garage he could probably travel to you. Here is his website Cardiff Tints - Window tinting Cardiff
Here are two photos from when he did mine last October and a photo from last week.
My front ones were lighter than the rear but got him to do the front same tint as the rear.
Not had a problem with them no pealing. Sorry the photos are big didnt have time to resize them.

Pretty sure those front tints are illegal

on my 1.6 i had 65s on the front (illegal by 5%) and i was only ever pulled once. he made me peel it off but i replaced it the weekend after and that was that. i'm also very certain he only pulled me over because i'm asian and for some reason therefore don't belong in a nice car. he followed me for 2 miles when i'd done nothing wrong before he worked out what he could pull me over for. (no, i'm not bitter at all :sadlike:.)

anyway, there's a guy who travels around called Pepe from Cappucino Tints based in the Leeds/Bradford area. top bloke, competitive prices and good work. dunno if he'll travel to you tho.

No problem. Tell him Ashley told you to contact him. I think it's 70 or 80% he will be able to tell you.
Thanks for that.

Aren't all front tints illegal now? Thought it was only the rears that could be done :/

the fronts and windshield have to let thru a minimum of 70% light. thing is that standard car's glass is usually as tinted as you're allowed

I've got 50% on the front, the darkest i'll go for. Had no problem so far even when next to a cop car, but it really depends on what mood they are in! day time it isn't to bad, obviously at night its a lot darker.

Hope your eating plenty carrots to be able to see out of driver/ passenger side windows with that amount of tint at night !

it just depends how the weather/light is and what angle your looking. i've had no problems at night.

What level would people recommend for the best OEM level? I dont want to go too dark, but then I dont want to go too light! Been advised to go for a light smoke, but I would have thought a medium would be better? I dont really want Dark or Limo though really!
