Ok guys, here's the score. Getting my rear screen, rear quarterlights and rear windows tinted tomorrow. I always go 20%. On the rear and will this time. Now I was fully set on going to get the side windows done in 20% to match the ford privacy glass but my other option is to get 35% on the sides like I had on my last car. Now I'm not sure which to go for. I kinda figure stay at 20 all round as I'm trying to keep a stock ford look but what does everyone else think? Feel free to give an opinion or just put either 20 or 35
Cheers fellas (and ladies?)

Just to clarify, you normaly go 20% all round so it all matches. But you this time your considering 20% back door and 35% sides.

 

Unless your wanting to keep you back seat activities a secret :lol:  i personaly suggest sicking with your original idea of doing the whole lot the same so it matches and has the stock look.

 

If you still cant decide theres always the option of uv shades. The ones that are specificaly for your car, that way you get the privacy you want, but, if you have the urge you can take them of (a matter of seconds to unclip) for a little while then put them back in again, depending on your mood :)

The Privacy shades are very good, they arent tints, but they are a good equivelant!

I would go with the stock look (20 all round)

Just considering this for my car, how much have you been quoted for the work?

cheaper too :D

 

Definately... I paid just over £80 all in, its a non declarable so doesnt affect my insurance as well, removable and transferrable so if the car and I do part directions, then I can sell them and get something back...

i had mine done on the weekend and cost me £160 for every window in the back of my focus 5 door.

was going to go with a factory look but decided to go a bit darker and glad I did.

Good thing about it not being needed to be declared, and transfereable too.

 

Trouble is i have a set of 53 reg vectra estate shades in the garage but dont know anyone who has one :lol:
