    WINDOW TINTS

    was thinking of getting window tints for my red 3 door mk3, dark enough to tell that they r tinted but light enough so that the ladies can still see in :?: sort of dark smoke :?: what do u lot think, bit unsure myself, dont want really dark ones tho

    I was thinking of getting mine done! dark smoke would be the best choice I would say. I went to r-techautodesign in St Albans and they do tinting on site

    I had my windows tinted at R-tec, went for a light smoke all round so as to keep it legal, i think dark tints would look odd on my car cos its a purply black....if it was solid black then darker would of looked good. Red cars look sweet with almost any amount of tint tho, same for silver as well imo.



    Cost about £200, lifetime warrenty as well

    I reckon a 35% VLT (the lightest 'standard' tint) looks OK, anymore and it just looks over the top, except on stretch limos and Miami drug dealers cars

    If you get yours done make sure you post some pics as it's something i've been thinking of doing seeing as our workshop does that stuff now. Think i'd want to go for a light tint although i'm sure the girls would want it darker so they can't see my ugly mug!!!!
    Squidge....... When you say this place in St Albans do tinting on site I hope yoy don't mean they will come out to you as i'd love to know how they get the tint on the window without any shit behind it in the wind and rain

    I'll be going for a light smoke effect on mine. But instead of normal tinting film, I'll be going to Pentagon Superglass for the Anti Smash and Grab window film. Meant to be a good anti-theft devise by all accounts.
