    i realised what my car is lacking!

    tints!

    i quickly photoshopped it and i was right.

    im gonna go buy some tinting stuff first thing tomorrow!

    do you lot agree?

    before:



    after:



    darker maybe?

    took me ages to figure out why mine looks very standard and not sporty, besides the mods that are on the list!

    looks sound, however dont forget any extra tint on the front windows is illegal ,

    so be careful, hearing on other forums and variuos other cars of folks being " pulled up " for this ,and made to remove it,fine etc...........
    shame cause it looks good...............................

    Front windows and windscreen are at there legal limit (generally) so you can only do the rears and the rear windscreen.

    as above, shame cos it does look good!

    i read you are allowed some minor tinting on the front side windows (none on windscreen) and the b pillar back you can do as you like. i will check thoroughly first though. the shop that sells it must know!

    you are but the astras already have tint on them its got to emit 75% light so you can hardly see tint as it is, i had limo blacks on my vts and i was lucky the last tiem i saw it for sale it had no tints on so guessing tis been done my wifes fiesta had tints on to and had to have the front taken off looked pants with a legal on the front though

    if i remeber rightly the astras have a 10% tint on already and im sure that they dont do a tint that can go over the top that will stay within the legal amount,

    Generally no tints on the front, my golf has light smoked on the front, its looks good, and not been pulled over, but I have no doubt if I did I would have to take them off, thats why I'm not getting any on the astra, especially as they are really hot on it down here now.
