Im sat at work and i'm struggling to decide if i should leave my rear tints on or just take them off right now.

The lads at work think i should keep them on but i think the car will looker cleaner without tints, would also make it a lot easier to reverse at night, its like drivng a van at the moment, can't see a thing. I'm just worried i'll take them off and regret it.

Heres how it looks now in all its scruffy glory. Limo black tints on the rear 3 windows.

Deano27 did 20% on mine I think rather than limo black and I didnt have any problems.

If you are looking for cleanliness maybe go for something uniform on front and rear windows, less tint darkness but evens the car out. Just a suggestion.

im all for tints on cars, but only certain colors lol

been a black car i would say yeah, go for a light smoke on front and dark smoke on back (not limo)

i taken them off mine as soon as i got mine, just didn't suit my color imo

My black blob had rear limo tints, totally agree about the rear visibility, I have dark smoke on the rear of my hawkeye with light smoke up front done by deano, if I had kept the Blobeye I would have removed the limo and replaced it with the same as I have on the hawkeye. Much better visibility with almost the same look from outside.

Left them on for now but think i'll remove them tomorrow. I got the done at JAE in september on a whim, had cash to spend and the bc stand didnt even have any coilovers with them to sell so i just got tints instead.

Went with limo black on the backs and dark smoke on the fronts. Removed the fronts this morning because it looked like a drug dealers car and could barely use my mirrors in the dark :p

I'd put off doing it for ages because i thought it would leave a load of glue behind, turns out it just comes off with no residue left behind at all.
