    Window tints on a coupe???

    Ive never been a massive fan of tints, but after seeing how good they look on my dads red VXR Ive decided to have them done on my red coupe linea rossa.

    I use my car for work so I dont want them to dark as dont want mr PC plod pulling me over as its is allready noticeable with the kit Ive got on. Im definatley getting them done but do I go for:

    57% Visibility
    37% Visibility

    Also if people have pictures of their coupes with the amount of tint they have gone for please post them if you dont mind?

    Cheers, Paul

    Just found a picture of my coupe as shes stands, and thats my dads VXR at the bottom with 37% tints!

    My coupe with a 50% tint on the front and 35% tint on the rest, you can do the rest of the maths on a car thats 70% to start with

    Ive got em on the back and quarters of my red coupe. Not limo black but the one slightly lighter.. its very dark, but believe me they are worth doing and not that noticable. They blend in very well!

    Cheers guys, that does look autosparks, 57% is enough for me I reckon now! prefer all the windows the same tint! good thing is Tint FX are doing them & are good enough to agree to do one of the windows in 57% 1st & if I decide to go darker, will take it of & put the 37% on! Good service me thinks!

    Oh yesh thats good like, av never heard of a tinter that would do that!

    Normally the would just hover it over your window n go 'do you like it'.

    Have you got a quote? How much is it, if you don't mind me asking?
