    Been searching around the site for a while now, but still can't find a photo of a platinum grey mk1 leon with tinted windows!

    Can anyone help me out? :confused:

    Cheers,

    looking at that car it looks like 2 complete different shades of grey in the last pic, nice tints though, don't think i'd go darker :)

    good find Danny

    i like the tint, i am after a light tint, nothing crazy, i hate seeing people with a dark tint at a junction, you can't see the driver and don't know if they see you, it unnerves me a bit.

    just turn to them and go :w4nk:, you'll then know if they can see you or not. Just prey the LCR is quicker of the line :cartman:
     
  13. Here's an old pic of mine. It's got light tints on the front going slightly darker at the rear.

    If i remember correctly 75% at the rear so they let through only 25% of the light and 25-30% at the front so they let through 70-75% of the light.

    Technically as they are slightly tinted from the factory the front windows probably wouldn't pass a legality test now. But they are probably subtle enough that without inspection you can get away with it. As I didn't go full midnight tint on the rears it helps the transition from front to back appear less than it actually is.

    J3RV X owns my old car btw. ;) The pic above is outside my house. :p

    Good choice you made there Mark ;)

    I can see that i'm going to start going down the old grey and darker grey/black route so i'm think a subtle tint would tie in. Don't think this will happen until next year though :(
