Yeah it was focus essentials that recommended essex tints to me and i couldnt have asked for a better service!!

Not the cheapest but they use the most expensive tinting film to ensure the best quality with a very high scratch resistance...

Ive since been in touch with focus essentials to thank them and to ask if there was any discounts they could get us, and im waiting to hear back from them as we speak...


And yes ive had my mudflaps on for about 2yrs not and still look brand new... i beleive afew other members have purchased sets from them aswel!!

ok got the tints done today... i ended up with a 15% tint on the front and a 50% approx tint on the backs and i am very pleased!!!

I got them done at essex tints in harlow, a real professional job and it was real interesting to see how its done!!

I went to them through recommendation from Focus Essentials and what an excellent job!!


Im waiting to see if there will be a discount avaliable for people that contact essex tints through focus essentials, and ill keep you all posted!!


As for pics i will try to get some done tomorrow!!


cheers for all your replies!!

I like the blue carbon effect on the center console but the only thing stopping me from wrapping mine is the grey buttons stand out like a sore thumb!! is the wrap too thick to go over the buttons??

Yea I know but I don't want jet black on the back and nothing on the front!!! I'm thinking legal on fronts then maybe 70% tint on the backs!!
I don't like it when there is a big difference between front and back but at the same time I think 30% all round won't be dark enough lol

I know this is a topic that often pops up on the forum, but im just looking at what people have been quoted to have it done...

I have a 5 door focus zs and I will be getting front and rear tints...

I am aware of the legal limits, requirements and regulations.

So i have been quoted and wanted to see how it compared to other people...

So how much have you paid or how much have you been quoted??

Many thanks

like what you've done so far fella... your car looks the dogs swingers...

I cant remember off the top of my head what bulbs i used, i think they might have been phillips ultimate or something along those lines. They are really bright but abit yellowy still...

I have probably tryed 3 other sets of bulbs some giving off a whiter poor but poor visibilty at night!!

If i can ever get round to it, i'll be adding rear footwell lighting to match the front, tinted windows and hopefully a twin exhaust system.

Did you get round to fitting the rear mudflaps in the end?
