T4 Post Icon Window Tint Upgrade

My T4 LWB Caravelle has the rear and side windows lightly tinted. This was done before iI purchased her.


I was thinking of upgrading to a very dark tint similar to a limo on all of the rear and side windows so that people cannot see in and also it should hopefully compliment the Jet Black paintwork.


Have been quoted 200 to have 5 windows done if I remove the current tint film and thoroughly clean the windows or 260 if they have to remove the old tints. They said that the current tint film can be a right pain to remove and can leave lots of bits stuck to the windows.


Does 260 sound a reasonable price please?.



Can anyone recommend from experience a good window tint company in North Manchester / Lancashire?


Thanks

For a good quality job down here in the 'South', that would be a good deal .................... so get your window scraper out (not on the HRW though)

Should look like a LWB van when finished!

I don't think it's that cheap, place near me charge a flat fee of 30 per window supplied and fitted. They also prefer to remove the old tint.
