Hi fellas
I'm looking to add privacy tin to my rear window and rear side windows. I want to add it to help with the kids in the back ,keeping the sun of them e.c.t but also to look nice on the focus against the silver. Where is the cheapest and best place to get the film tint? I remember doing my old mk6 escort with it from my local car parts shop (closed now for many years). Not the easiest stuff to work with but time and a cool head and miracles happen lol!
Also what shade of darkness do you recommend I get? I don't want limo black as I think its too dark again I want to stay clear from the bad chavy tint job lookalikes lol! What shades of tint do you have and what's the best one to go for against the moondust silver paintwork?

Have something to contribute?

+1
But the front is 10%
As the stock factory tint can already be as much as 10%
The tint specialist recommended fitting a 10% tint to the window because 20% on front side windows is the legal maximum

If you want to get tints, you could get aftermarkets for about £150 - £200 on average. Alternatively, you could do what a few of us have done and instead get "privacy shades". I got mine from vanstyles, at a very reasonable £75! all the rear windows are now 'tinted' with the shades.

I had climaer blinds on mine before and got rid because their still there when you roll down the rear windows
Blinds would be good on 3 door where the windows don't roll
But blinds in a 5 door with kids in the back looking through the mesh feels like a prision bus
No offence Stoney ;)

Tint goes down with the window and prevents heat from entering the car
The blinds build heat between glass and blind inside the car,

Here is tint IMG_20130521_132204_zps0380965c.jpgIMG_20130518_090126_zps3ee0e93d.jpgIMG_20130519_202717_zps1e2dd489.jpg
IMG_20130618_173256_zpsbaa882c6.jpg

10% front
30% rear
And from inside

I quite like the convenience of the blinds, but I would love to be able to tint... "horses for courses" as the old saying goes...

 

I do like the benefit of the blinds though, its stops debris and bugs entering the vehicle uninvited!

Mine keep the car cooler in the back when running the dogs to/from work and allows me to open the windows for ventilation without allowing direct light in.

Of course you can but no reverse charges. :)

 

 

Regarding , tint's i found the Climair blinds great and not so restrictive as an added tint , plus you can remove then easily for the winter months if you want to.
