Saturday she is going in for back window and both back side windows to be tinted black, someone I work with works at the weekends in a place that Fords send their cars too (if you decide after purchase to have them done) and he is giving me a very good discount!!!!! of course pics will follow, now I just have to try to persude Max about the side skirts as he has gone off the idea of those now.

Nice one ;)

Out of interest, are you having the windows replaced or having film?

And if I can't be rude and ask how much it's costing you?

Thanks

I want to be able to still see into the car so probably go for 35% too.

Cheapest I've had was £170! Though I can get film done for a lot cheaper so may go for that.

I was very worried it might bubble so held off getting it.

My OH's friend can do it but not sure for what price yet, when i find out i'll decide whether I want it. But every fiesta round here seems to have it!

I said that if it looks !Removed!, then I aint paying them lol, been guaranteed that it will look like its proper tinted glass when finished - time will tell, at least with film if you get fed up you can take it off again.

The place is called Shades in Rettendon Essex they normally charge £25 per window but I am getting a discount.

Ok forget I ever posted this, couldnt find the place, the bloke I work with had his phone switched off, so dont know if it was a wind up on me or what!!!! anyway on further investigation on the net, realised that the windows would need taking out for a proper job and that it would take half a day to do, well I was told under an hour which means that if it was a legit place then they were just going to wack the film over the glass and cut it at the edges!, been talking to Max on the phone and he said to leave it, its not essential and im really annoyed that ive wasted half a saturday over this arghhh.

thats not good news you will have to let us know if you find out if it was a wind up or not, if it was a wind up it is not a very nice one at all. :(.

Heya Michelle , the place does exist, and they do a good job, i had my clio done there(dont know if you ever saw it) the way they do it is they measure it up on the outside of the window, and then put it inside, you cant tell though because the windows have a little black lip around them, the tinting place is hard to find , its down a little dirt track , when you get to the end of it you need to turn right, if you want to find it again just give us

a shout. I have some pics of my clio somewhere i think if you wanted to see how the windows looked, none closeup of the windows but you will get the idea of how they looked.
