Hey guys,

In the next couple weeks I am going to get my car windows tinted. Do any of you know a good place in the southeast to get them tinted. I want to get dark dark you know, so what should i ask for and how much and if any of you know palces that are cheap.

Cheers guys.

uuuummmmmmmm......... pre '94 AFAIK does not mean jack!

Darkest legal is simply that DARKEST LEGAL!!!!!

On the wagon though, the rear compartment CAN be slightly darker than the rest and still be legal!

I got mine done for $170!!! He can do sedans aswel for $150! Takes about 1 and a half hours and is a quality professional job! HE works for Major tint company (wont mention here) and the job is fully gauranteed as you would get in any shop you would take it too.

Located in SE suburbs in Melbourne - PM me if you would like to arrange something!

Cheers - Matt. :D

***Check out my gallery to see the job he did on mine!! ***

if u want darker than legal it may be hard to find, i had some troubles finding someone who would do less than 35%, i wrang round, but then i spoke to solartint and they said come in and speak to us, we dont like speaking over the phone, and BAM i went in and they said they will do it (mind you this is on my RICER SUBERU LIBERTY BRO) when i had it, anywayz 20% is pretty F**k dark, could barely see in it at night, and if ur car has a dark interior it will assist in the illusion of darker tint...hahah so to speak... but yeh, my mate has 5% on his BOMMODORE and it is way too dark, i had enough trouble seeing out my windows (when turning into my driveway) in the nightime, and when it was raining it was even worse!! and it looks pretty good too, and i got pulled over by cops a fair few times (being rice and all) and they never mentioned it, so i think 20% is a good in between, as in its HEAPS dark, but the coppers never picked up on it.......i think i paid about $300 for it, it was titanium filament tint, lifetime warranty stuff but......

Straight over the top - carefully. If they're professioanls it won't be a problem.
