Hello all,

I am going to get my windows tinted on saturday as it is cheaper and i get to choose the tint %.

However i thought i would ring the insurance to double check it wouldnt cost me any more and they want to charge me £43.32 extra! Bit of a cheek just for windows.

I know that it makes the car look more 'sporty' and more attractive (each to their own of course) but £43.32 is a lot!!!

The back three windows are only £160 to get them tinted :? the most annoying thing is that if i got them done from Audi it wouldnt cost any more as it was a factory item... stupid insurance :)

Ask the firm who is fitting the tint if they have heard of this before...

I would rather they knew because if i crashed and they get the invoice for the car etc and see its not on there and they said the insurance is void and wont let me claim for the £43.32 i would be gutted!

I will ask them about it but just wanted everyones views on it really.

Tell them its film to make the windows harder to break and therefore want a reduction!
Thats what i said to them. They said they disagree as if the windows are clear the people could see there was nothing to steal and would leave the car alone!!

Yes thats often the way they see it; looks like youve got something to hide, should always declare it, just to be on the safe side
