I Think you better check up with the police and dvla because it could be come a problem I Hear that a fella bought a brand new car from a car showroom that had tint window years ago and keep getting hassle from the police.Cause they reckon the tints was to dark and it could cause accident with drivers at night time.

Can you let me know how you get in with the guy in Green Lane (is it soundwaves?) I have had him install sound systems in my cars before he's quick, cheap and very good, but this is a very interesting addition to his portfolio.
Cheers

I've known Ian for many many years, it is Soundwaves, and Elite Limo's. They've been doing the tinting for a few years now so it's not anything new.

Soundwaves did the install in my Focus years ago when I was into that sort of thing. He did a fantastic job and is a really nice guy as well. He helped me out free of charge when I got stuck installing a Parrot handsfree kit too.

I thought he did tinting back then?

Regardless, he's someone I would definitely recommend.
