Hi All,
I want to get my windows tinted and would like to know the best place to take it. I have heard of the one on shrewsbury road, but a family member took there car there and they said it wasn't very good (all the edges where jaggered and not straight to the edge of the window). So is there anyone who can give me somewhere better. Also what is the rough cost of this (mines a focus st-3). Also where can i get my under-car neons fitted. Again best and most reliable places to go and how much does it cost. Or if there is a friendly hand out there who knows how to do it, i would appreciate the help as i haven't a clue. thats all for now until i chew your brains again. cheers thumbsup

Loc: woundn`t you like to know
neons are last year mod, and personally i dont think they look nice, there easy to fit, but at the end of the day, if you like them then get them, it shouldnt matter what we think, aslong as your happy, i dont mind helping to fit them

for ur glass i personally recomend wrexham advanced autotints,bit of a drive but well well worth it, absolutely flawless (i went there when i lived in wolverhampton so it was a good drive even from there)

For ur neons i recommend u dont spoil an ST with neons,but if u must have them done
a)try em urself if u know or are willing to learn about how to route wiring and screw self tappers into ur car
b)go to a bodyshop who will make sure theyre fitted safely,securely and not exposing any bare metal under ur car(speaking of which,if u DIY maker sure u cover up the metal u screw thru with underbody seal) (try the handful of CW sponsor bodyshops)

I did the tints on mine on my own - wouldn't recommend it, as I wasted 50 quid's worth of the stuff getting it right, after a few go's it becomes easy, but the first time it just doesn't make sense.

cheers to all for the advise much appreciated. Think i will leave the neons, it was something the missus bought me (she thought it would look good, bless her). i don't fancy drilling hole in the car. Will definatly be getting the window tinted, some excellent suggestions on that. Once done will try and get some pics posted.
cheers all thumbsup

Is this guy from Vinyl graphics still doing foreigners still?
I want mine doing ASAP.
Also have a Saab 9-3 which I am thinking of getting doen at same time. Either that or sell it and buy something else.

We are a company called Total Tinting in bromborough and we tint all types of cars.We have been open for 10 months now and do alot of main dealer work for Toyota, Vauxhall, Ford and Mercedes. We offer a 5 year warranty on the film against fading and a life time warranty on the fitting. We have to re-do alot of work done by local graphic companies as they don't do this type of work all day every day like we do.
