Get your flame suit on most people around here strongly dislike the altezzas, but its your car so if you like them thats all that matters :thumbup:
As for the tinted windows, i say definatly :thumbup:

tint's look great on b5's...just got mine done a month ago.

it looks great, and makes the car soo much more comfortable to sit in during the day.

nice car, welcome to clubb5 :)

lol.... yea ... lowering spings... but am too scared to do that.... dont know.. but i just think that will make the ride too firm ;-)

am thinking of chipping it ... i hear this UPsolute is good..and nuspeed stuff.... still learning.... its only a 110 bhp TDI ;-) am in scotland by the way, so its common here.

do you have a pic of your tinted car?? am guessing you tint the 4 side windows and the back window... leaving the front window completely untouched.

I suppose they have to take out the windows they need to tint... i hope they dont mess them up or put them back rubbishly :suspicio:

no no, the windows dont have to come out. They just cut the tint film to fit and they stick it on.

i did 50% tint on the front and 20% in the back. it is illegal to tint your front side windows where i live...that's why i went light up front

my car on the left

4meezy, i was wondering about the nj tint laws....

i heard when you go to the dmv to get your car inspected they will fail you. also, cops are always ready to pull you over

i was also wondering how much a tint job generally costs, and where you can get it done?

as for where, i went to ''the tint shop'' in edison as per servral recomendations from other cb5ers....

all arround tint w/ life time warranty was about $250 with out lifetime warranty is like 200.

not cheap!

I agree w/A-Tiller: Tint the windows and get some nice OEM optional tails on there. The Altezza look is :thumbdow: in my opinion.
