i think it all depends on where you go for prices. how many windows are you thinking of getting tinted?
dont go to dark at the front or the rozzers will be all over you :angry:

Mine came with privacy glass on all rear half windows and I think it looks good so go for it if you can get a good price :)

I paid 110 for the rear 3 windows 80% tint can see through both windows only just from the outside but you can't see the seats or parcel shelf. Can see out still fine only really a problem reversing at night

The Fiesta and Focus cost me 50 for fronts but go quite light - I had the lightest tint I could on the front and never have police problems !

I personally like tints - many say it's illegal which yes I kno but they are my cars and never had any issues - when ford tint the rears so dark I think the front clear glass looks strange and better tinted
