Hi,

 

I am considering getting my back windows + the back windshield tinted, but i am in doubt of what percentage of tint to go with, i talked to a guy in the shop, he said that i should go for 35-40% but to be honest i have no idea how it will look. 

 

Found this picture on Google:

1133-fiesta-mk6-tint-540x342.jpg

The above is a 20% - so 35-40 would be a lot lighter i spouse?

 

I have a Fiesta Titanium MK 7.5 in Midnight Sky, does anyone have pictures of the Fiesta with tinted windows, and could assist with the percentage?

 

Any help appreciated, thanks!

 

/Mick

20% tint will give the factory look and will be a bit darker than the factory tinted titaniums. 35% looks good in the winter but too light in the sun. 50%+ u would barely notice it. I recommend getting 20% if only tinting the rears any darker than that would make it difficult reversing at night

By law, window tints must allow 70% of light to pass through them. I'm not sure what grade of tint would allow this though

That is for the front windows, the rears do not have a limit. https://www.gov.uk/t...le-window-rules

Here is mine, came with the car, this is the darkest we can legaly put on the cars, I'm very happy with them, keeps the car surprisingly cool and no unwanted eyes prowling for something to steal, I have no problem looking outside.

Just a quick question. Do they make the inside of the back of car seem more confined

I don't think so, the only way I really notice it has been tinted from the inside is when I look out through my front window compaired to my side windows, but its not as dark as it looks when viewing it from inside out compaired to outside in, if that makes any sense

Sure

 

Sorry for the quality, don't think the pics do it justice

The pic on the left was taken outside in the shade, the one on the right was taken by the dealer when I bought it in the show room

You can have 100% limo black tint on rear quarters and rear but the front passenger and driver side must allow 70% through remember the factory windows have a slight tint on already I think they are 5 or 10% standard so you can add up to 20 to 25%. The windscreen stays non tinted.
