  • Window Tinting

    1) Is it worthwhile if you can only have the rear window and rear sides done?
    2) How much did it cost you?
    3) Are you pleased with or does it look a little sort of boy racerish silly like some cars do?

    I had 5 windows done, and i think it completes the look! It cost me £150 notes for the whole lot, and i think it looks great, dont look chav or boy racer as its a nice motor, if you had a 1992 corsa and had it done, thats a different story!

            Got to have mine done yet, but had all five done inside and out for £150 in my last astra. You can have all the windows done but each window can only be tinited so much due to a change in the law, however any good tinter will put the correct darkness on. Had mine done by www.tintr.co.uk

              I have been quoted £150 as a special deal from Pentagon for all 5 windows but he would only do "Light Smoke" on the front side windows.

              As I want the same tint all the way around would Light Smoke enhance the car and would it be noticeable above the normal standard tinted glass the car comes with, or would it have no real effect?

                          Looks nice but all you need is to get stopped and required to take the tint off due to being illegal and then you have to fork out for new windows.

                              you will care if you get an endorsement, i just think it's not worth the hassle anymore.

                              go light smoked if anything.
