right well i sell simple do it yourself kits at work from 19.99. you can get it done by proffesionals for much more, however if you feel like spending a bit of money you can get actual smoked glass window replacements. If i do mine i`ll just get the kit, cheap and cheerful, no complaints about em yet. (you can get them from halfords)

no tint on windscreen, driver and passenger window 30% (usually light or medium smoke) and rear windows (all 3) as dark as you want i think. bout £150 for a proffesional job at tintR in nottingham. wouldnt try tinting yourself unless you know exactly what is entaled, bout 2 hours on each window. it is very very diffucult to get it on without bubbles.

tinitings not that bad. did mine in a day, rear side windows not too bad. just remove the window if you have the one which open, amkes ita damn site easier. i went for chrome on the sides to be different but then some git witha silver mini copied me! rear one was a buger to do as its a double curve. a cheat way to do it, is to do stripps that are a s wide as the heater stripps that way you dont see the joins. and my front windas are a light smoke like the rear, i just didnt do the windscreen. when you the fronts pop off the little felt and schome strip that sits on the top of the door and clean it. if you dont any grit trapped will scratch your tints, as i found out :)
