Hey,
Does anyone have the Audi fitted privacy glass?

Is it actually a tint film fitted at the factory, or is the glass a darker tint? I am thinking about adding this to my order or getting tints done after.

Cheers! :cool:

My god...i was honestly going to do this thread earlier, but i done a search instead because I know everyone hates a repeat lol

Audi's price seems really steep for tinted glass, i know its an audi but surely there privacy glass deserves to be double the price of many manufacturers?

Haha ;)

So is the glass a darker glass? Or is it a film tint?

I wonder if the dealer has the tints done by a local guy when the car arrives?

Mojito let me know if you get any quotes for pricing of aftermarket tints as it's something I'm thinking of doing once I've got mine !

A local guy does it for £150. I do have a big roll of LLumar medium tint in the loft, but i think i will leave it to the pro's ;)

Only reason I'd pay for factory glass is when you apply tints via film they have to go on top if the heated screen and unless done really well you can sometimes tell with a few ripples.

I was quoted "unseen from £95.00" as the A1 is new , using Madico film. This guy bakes the film onto all removable windows.

Whilst we are here, i have heard that there is a special legal tint film for front side windows... It looks tinted from outside, but lets in light so it passes the light sensor test.

Has anyone heard or know about this?

Actually, you could help me test how private the tint actually is! ;)
