    Hello everyone. As some of you may already know, I got my wheels refurbed the week before last to a gunmetal grey.

    As the car is completely standard, I thought I would compliment these wheels with some tinted windows.

    What shade would you recommend?

    Please complete the survey

    If you have any suggestions/comments, please feel free to share!

    I have attached a picture showing how the car looks now...

    Thank you for your reply and I appreciate your feedback.

    I'm getting a really good deal on the tints (£60 for the full car as I am close with the guy) and I believe its worth taking the risk. I could always remove them if they do not look right.

    I was looking more towards the standard factory tint look, to ensure it don't look like a 'boy racer' attempt.

    I would appreciate more feedback.

    No tints, as neal says a bit chav

    My girlfriend is a police women and she and her mates love pulling over silly cars and making them rip tints off the front windows lol

    im sure someone could knock up a photo shop of your car with tints for you if you ask nicely

    25% is way too dark still Hassan. "Back in the day" tints were good, now you're better of sticking with clear windows - amazing what a difference clean glass does to the car or other option is going for the 5% tint all round, it looks more factory.

    25% when covered on the back and front will look really dark, IMO if you have to then 5% all round will looks classy without being too dark

    I never really got the factory option. When I bought my MINI it was an option but why would you want black windows in the back and clear in the front

    I know the law insists it but as a consumer there must be other options that deliver better bang for buck.

    If you can get it for £60 it's almost disposable I can't imagine what 25% looks like but if your people offer a 'colour chart' go for the lightest you can
    I'm loving it

    I bit the bullet and got the car tinted 2 weeks ago (some of you may not be happy!).

    Pictures are attached.
