Hey, Im going to be tinting my car really soon as just love tinted windows so much more then the stock crap haha.

So im running a 2000 VT executive series 2 just wondering does this come with tint already applied even teeny bit? Cus do i need it removed before getting new tint. Then i have to ask is will the midnight express greatly reduce the heat of my car when left outside while at work all day because atm it gets bloody hot!! Also do you think the midnight express tint would look fine on a tungsten coloured commo like is it pretty black? Dont want to go over legal limit for tint as having the big red P already gets me enough attention.

Going to be getting a decent price on the tint so do you think its worth it?

Tinting is one of the compulsory 'mods' to a car.

Wise to not go illegal at your P plate stage, to avoid drawing crabs.

It will reduce the 'rays, don't expect cooling miracles from it.

Yer mate haha thought it would be a pretty much compulsory add on ;) And thats exactly what i was thinking about staying legal whilst on the P's. Ah well some less rays is better then heaps haha. Also wondering would a clubby vt rear bumper suit w/o the rest of the body kit or no way?

definatly go 25% all round its one darker than legal so its not going to draw attention once you go past that it starts to get unsafe at night. 35% just isnt dark enough
