Now it’s winter and the sun has disappeared, Jules has decided it’s the perfect time to get some tints…
With winter in full swing, the rebuild plans have well and truly been hatched.
Ray-Ban, Oakley, Prada, D&G... what’s your favourite brand of shades? For me, the best shades are the ones you put on your car windows. Yup, window tinting might be considered an old-skool mod, but it’s still as popular as ever, and for good reason too.
Now don’t get me wrong, the whole purpose of taking my car to Bromley and getting Autoworx UK to tint the windows was purely for aesthetic reasons. I’m a bit vein like that. Much like the celebrities who prance around in their Versace bins. But there’s a whole load of other advantages to tinting your car windows…
Not only do they look awesome, but they’ll increase the security and privacy of your vehicle, reduce UV rays by 99-percent (if high-quality film is used, like the XPEL Autoworx UK recommend) and also reduce solar heat gain by 49-percent – particular useful in the summer at shows when your car has been in direct sunlight all day. So yeah, there’s more to tinting than meets the eye (pun very much intended).
Now, I’ve had a lot of my projects tinted in the past, pretty much all of them and all by top installers. But I haven’t had a car tinted in Kent for over a decade, because I’ve been living in the West Country up until pretty recently. This lead me to look for a new window tinter and after a quick search and a bit of research I decided to contact Autoworx UK. After speaking to Tom (the boss), who’s been in the trade for almost two decades, I subsequently booked my car in.
Now, I was fully expecting to rock-up and prepare myself for the five-hour wait while the guys stripped the doorcards off and got to work. The waiting is one of the very few downsides to tinting. Or rather, it was.
Tom works with master-installer Neil to get things sorted in double quick time! They informed me there was no need to remove the doorcard completely anymore as this was quite an old-skool technique and completely pointless on my car. As you can imagine, this cut down installation time massively. How long did the whole process take? Less than an hour. And they can do it even quicker when a fat bloke isn’t getting in the way taking pictures and asking annoying questions.
“The window tinting game has moved on in the last 10 years,” said Tom. “People want a quick turn around. And to make window tinting cost effective for us, but more importantly, for the customer, you have to be efficient with the instillation process. We still use the best products and complete the job to high standards, and our lifetime guarantee backs that up!”
So there go. If you want to improve the look of your car in less than an hour and live near Bromley, hit up Autoworx UK. They have the official Slim Jules seal of approval.
