The thought of getting a bad job done or the end product looking too much is the only this stopping me from tinting my windows, as much as I would like to I just cant bring myself to do it.

Sukh It can take up to 2 weeks for them to dry properly you might find that the marks go after a while they do us quite a bit of lubricante to put them on.

I'm definitely thinking of getting it done aswell, but i need a couple of questions answering first if possible.. What are the differences between getting a professional company to do it for a couple of hundred pounds or buying one of these laser cut kits that are cut to the exact models specification for about fifty pounds? Is there really that much difference in it?? And/or are both techniques totally different?

i paid a chap ?160 cash for mine and its perfect!!

Thick american stuff that all the good tinters use, not what you will get in Halfords.

Havnt seen these laser cut kits though, but tinting is an art and wouldnt try it myself (again)

Sukh, the tints should not be like that at all. I have a contact who does it and charges 230 squid for a 5 door Golf. I had mine done at 50% and the tint look perfect. My local VW/ Audi Garage use this same company and quoted me 500 squid to get it done. Little did they know i know the guy anyway. Fellas, any of you thinking of getting it done, DO IT. If you wish to meet, you can see my Tints. Me and Raj met the other week and he is getting his done today, so you can hear his opinion also! Look here: http://www.signandtint.co.uk/

As Kam said, I had mine done by the same guy Kam recommended. He had to take off 35% film first as I had this done originally and it was a crap job. I now have 50% and the job is good and the tints look great now. I personally think 35% is too dark especially with Black interior but 50% looks the dogs....... added bonus is the extra protection (smash/grab).
