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

What colours is the outside and inside? I’ve got a dark blue and dark grey inside and had aftermarket tints from Screentech Bristol at £120 for the b-pillar back at 35%. It looks a bit darker than 35% because of the dark interior. Just enough to stop nosey sods nosing in the back but still enough to look good and not look too much. Could have gone for 23% but in my case it would look too dark and van like. If the car was a light colour I’d probably have gone for the 23% though. Fords factory privacy glass is pretty heavy, 20% or less still for estates/people boxes aparently. 35% is about VW/Beemer tine. I’d say think about how it’ll look and go with gut feeling - either way it’ll improve the appearance and give a cleaner look.

Very nice. White sporty Fes, I'd be tempted with a fairly heavy tint like the factory one, 20% or something.
