Contacted a local reputable place myself the other day to have the two back windows and rear windscreen done on my 3 door and was quoted £70. Have never looked into this before so no idea on prices, but think now that the car is kitted, tints are needed. £70 for back 3 sound ok?

30% on all windows would be dark enough mate,
Its your motor and your choice but I've had limo tint on a previous car and ut was difficult to see out the rear window using the mirror,

I put Limo (5%) in my last Focus and ended up fitting a reversing camera as I couldn't see a thing at night. I just put the clip in blinds in the current Focus as the insurance company wanted another 30% on top each year for the modification.

clip in blinds all the way, I find they disturb my vision when I am looking behind me at any quick moving cars but still give me all the visibility I need. £75 I think I paid for them and they are as good as tints IMHO and can be resold if I dump the car, and can be removed when I want them to be :D

factory fitted I believe standard is 70% on all windows, as is the legal minimum (non privacy)

Privacy I believe is 30%

Be careful about tinting the fronts as they already have a slight tint in them from the factory.....also if you do tint the headlights you might want to check the latest MOT rules as I believe anything covering any lights front or back either tinted or film covering will fail the MOT :(
