I know this has come up on the forums loads of time and I have read through the others but I'm still unsure of what to do....
I have an Astra Coupe 1.8 on a 52 plate and want light smoke on the front sides and dark smoke on the back sides and back. I have found somewhere that will sell me this for £42 (made by Trillogy UK Ltd who are supposedly good? and pre cut to shape) or a company that will do just the back but for £180 - I defiantly want the front done too, not because I am a weirdo but just cos I think it look silly when it goes from clear to black strait away.
I am quite good at doing this sort of thing so I am quite confident that I can do the sides near perfectly no hassles, my issue is the back. It to three of us over an hour to get a dead bumble bee out from the little gap between the shelf and the bottom of the rear window when I first bought the car, could someone tell me how much of an issue it is going to be for me to do this? The Tint suppliers have told me that on Coupe models they supply the back window in two strips because of how difficult it is to do, and say I will not notice it from the out side when done. Is this actually the case? or will it end up looking silly if it is in two pieces? should I ask for it in one piece and spend the extra time?
Also does anyone know of the rear heater elements on the window are going to melt it or anything - they said not but at the same time they are trying to make a sale.
How long do you think an unexperienced person would take to fit them?
Finally, my coupe used to get very and condensation in the back (although it hasn't in some time now - will this cause a problem?
I would be grateful if ppl could post all the recommendations and advice that they have as I really want it tinted but a) don't really have £180 at the moment and b) do not want to have the back done and not the front.
