Also looking to get mine done. Had it on my previous Mini. I did myself with the stuff from halfords in Dark smoke. Was only brave enough to do all the side windows though. Did not want the hassle or doing the rear but it still looked good.
Dark smoke was almost certainly illegle as had I problems seeing out at dusk or on foggy days so will look at light smoke this time.
Speaking direct with the manufacture of the halfords stuff they now do pre cut kits for the mini and will mould the rear out of a single sheet for a one peice fit all for under £50. It can be ordered by TMC in the UK for self fitting.
Also looking at anothe supplier but I will have to heatshrink the rear to fit.
Interested to hear people say that factory tint is 'light' as Williams Mini M/cr quoted to do doors to match but then refused quoting legel problems. Price was around £200 as they matched Benhams Stockport. Would like to have had them done but not sure whether I can be without car while they get sorted.
chilli,tints,sports plus,chrome mirrors,silver viper stripes
big grin on my face!
Decided against front tints on mine, just see how it will look with just the rear done then decide later. I have changed my mind so many times already though on everything else, that I may still change my mind again. ( only just decided whether to get viper or bonet strpies)
If horse racing is the sport of Kings, should drag racing be the sport of Queens?
Got mine done at a local garage in Aberdeen which the installers use as a base for doing the job, £150 for 25 per cent tint, legal. I think they travelled from the Glasgow area.
Cost may have gone up since it was done about 9 months ago.
Im still going to get mine done, but through anouther company
I want to get as dark as is legaly aloud, hahahahahah but the nightmare i have, is living right in the middle of the westend, so i will have to drive out to get them done, and then wate there untill they are finished.
I might end up going to Gloucester, as i know people there that can do it for me, and i can pop in on my sister at the same time hahahahahaha good excuse i think, and a lovely drive at the same time
