Thinking of getting some medium window tints 80% dark 20% light for my Mini Cooper d 60 plate for privacy and cooler in the summer.
Has anyone had them done and how much do they roughly cost,looking at doing the back 3 windows only.
Living in Poole,Dorset
i havnt got my mini done yet but my last 3 cars were done limo black in the back and 30% in the front and i loved it with the tint. if your only going to do the backs should cost you no more than £150 might be a little cheaper but it is well worth it makes things private and keeps cool in summer. best of all it looks good makes most cars look more sporty
Personal preference, but opposite of what kelv likes, I HATE mismatched tint. I think the whole dark back windows and lighter front windows like an SUV is ugly. Just a pet peeve of mine.
My Mini has 20% tint all the way around. It looks great and it isn't hard to see out of. One thing to keep in mind, have it done right by a professional with high quality tint. Your ability to see out of it well, and for it to last long without bubbling or discoloring is the quality of the product and work, not just the percentage.
Its done so if you have an attractive female they can sit in the front and your mates can see her, and if you happen to have the misfortune of picking up someone less attractive they can sit in the back and no one can see them.
Just got my windows tinted today,very pleased,they look great.
Got 23% so pretty dark from the outside but im quite surprised how easily you can see out while driving.
Ending up paying 140 quid and they are guaranteed for as long as i own the vehicle,ill post a couple of photos up soon.
see, that's a look that I can't stand. Call it OCD, but having the fronts clear and the rears as dark as you can get them just because you legally can bugs me. That's why I say if you can do 20% on the fronts, just do 20% all around.
