Had my windows tinted!

Hay guys after a bit of consideration on percentages and which windows etc I've had my tints done this week. I went for 20% on the rears and I'm made up with how it's turned out. Didn't want them limo back as I still wanted to be able see my leather as that was a big factor for me when buying the car and also getting it pretty close to factory look. Had them done in southport by a guy called Shane at windowtint.co.uk top guy and an utter perfectionist which is what I love. Also had a slight tint put on my reversing lights with llumar spy vision, it's the stuff you can tint headlights with made up of tiny holes. Was planning on doing them red to look like lci but when he showed me this I thought it looked great. Here some pics hope you guys like, comments welcome!
Cheers

I need to get the rears tinted as there no way I'm having a Peppa pig stick on thing in the back window! Yours looks spot on, that's the look I would want, not too dark. I like it. Did you have the same 20% on the back glass as on the doors? Wheels look nice btw

Thanks a lot mate, pretty much happy with it now just considering some spacers and possibly gloss black front grill can't decide on that one yet!

I think I'd be tempted with a nice two pipe back box next.

Thanks for the comments mate, ye 20% on sides and back window, depends on your interior colour also, would probably look at little darker with black seats, what colour is yours?

Tints look good bring out sheen of paint...

Rear lights tidy, thinking about taking out white section on pre-lci e93 lights (indicators) for a similar effect with laminx as the white sections IMO dates the old lights..

All black leather. I see what you're saying about it looking darker with a darker interior but I'd be happy with that I think.

Looks good. I did the same on my car with 20%. Thats as close as you can get to the OEM sun protection glass option. Works really well at keeping the sun away from your little ones plus it looks cool
