hi guys :)
recently got my XD written off (got head'on'ed by a guy driving on my side of the road around a blind corner).
anyway... picked up a nice example of an EL 5speed :D time for some mods and such. can anyone recomend a good place to get window tinting done in the north suburbs of melb? (bundoora/preston etc etc). thought I would check on here to see if anyone had experiences before I hit the yellowpages.

also looking for a place to do some suspension work... or should I just DIY, hmm.

(the white car is the magna that hit me)

thanks guys :D

Would an EL Futura have to be optioned with passenger's airbag? If yes, good find, plus the manual.

im not 100% sure but the guy i bought it off said it was an option that not many had (dual airbags). since the head on with both cars going about 60ish i defeintly have a bit more appreciation for airbags ;) and wish the XD had one LOL

Glad your both ok though, and welcome to the Forum :)

$260 seems like a pretty damn good price.

yeh thatd be for 35%, excluding the front window - if they did darker than that they owuldnt openly advertise since its illegal

Anyone know how much extra it costs if the windows are already tinted? And can they retint a couple of windows and match the stock tint?

Cheers

I just got quoted $200 at Tint-A-Car in North Melb, im thinking of going either 20%.. or Formula 1 tint, which darkest it goes is the legal 35% (which will cost me $250)

I need opinions on 20% versus 35%.. prices you guys got it for? and pics for comparison?? cheers
