    My subtle new tints

    Picked the car up yesterday after having the windows tinted. Would have taken some pictures yesterday but the car was filthy and i had a few other things to do.

    I went for a light tint as i didn't want some chave limo black jobbies as the fronts would look stupid compared to the back. In the end i decided on 35% rear and 20% front, risky but they're very light at the front. Another reason i went for such light tints is the fact that i have black leather trim, so it makes them look darker than they are. £160 with a 5 year guarantee

    the only thing i'm struggling to adjust to is the fact that now the fronts are tinted, the weather always looks gloomy

    I've had several quotes from £160 to £200 so i went with the cheapest, purely cos it was local, and it came with a 5 year guarantee, and he did it for cash.

    It looks a lot darker cos of the interior i think
