    window tints

    has anybody used a company called Auto Films Direct before? They come out to you which seems very convenient, just wondered how good a job they do. Or can somebody recommend somewhere in SE Kent to get my coupe done.
    cheers

    I would definitely go out to a proper company and get it done on their premises. Good tinting comes down to cleanliness, guaranteed in a clean, dust free workshop (like most reputable tinting firms have).

    On the drive?? I wasted a lot of the film I got off NRJ trying to get a finish on the Astra like I got tinting my Nova's windows in my father in laws big roomy (clean) garage ops:

    Damn, why did they sell that house :roll:

    oh no they don't do it on the drive, the bloke said they have to have a double garage or workshop to work in or they won't come out. As luck would have it one of my ex's has just moved up the road from me and her new house has a newly built double garage with nothing in it.

    Im not far from you mate.

    I took the trip to Gatwick Auto Shades.

    They are the best in my opinion.

    Thousands of show car examples, you cant go wrong.

    And for £250, I thought that was pretty reasonable.

    yeah I've heard that Gatwick Autoshades are the best. They quoted me £260 to do my coupe. Only trouble is it's a bit of a drive and then what do you do while they're tinting the car? How lond does it take roughly?
