2010 Jetta TDI, Tint.
 
So I've owned my 2010 Jetta TDI for 3 weeks and some change and am loving it so far. Today I sprung for tint which I have always wanted but never had a car I liked enough to spend the money. Until now obviously.

First day home.

Tint is 35% as that is the legal limit in MA. :rolleyes:

From theses pictures I have concluded that the car definitely needs wheels and a few other cosmetic changes.

I also got some scrap tint so I can tint the radio screen which goes no where near dim enough for my tastes.

Thanks guys.

I have since done the blind spot mirrors and R-Line fog grills in prep for when I get fog lights.

Also have picked some stuff up to do custom headlights and tail lights.

Before the R-Lines.

I like the pics. Are they taken from north or south of town?

corvettecrazy April 22nd, 2011 15:28

Thanks! The pictures with the city in the background are taken from the south, with the city north.

Nice looking car

Looks good so far - thinkin you should bring her down to earth before she gets altitude sickness, though!

Nice look, nice rims.

GigglesTDI November 12th, 2011 13:01

looks really nice... I have the same car but in white gold mettalic and i'm thinking about tinting it but i don't want to get it too dark

corvettecrazy November 13th, 2011 17:52

I guess it has been a while since I have visited this thread. Thanks for all the compliments!!

acollins24: The tint is just standard tint. It probably looks blue from the reflection of the sky on the windows.

I think the tint is about perfect. It looks dark because the interior is also black, but when looking out it is really nice. I would have liked to be near 30% on the tint but I wanted to stay closer to the law.

A few updates:

What the front looks like currently. As compared to the other pictures in this thread, EZpass was painted black, grill covered in 3M matte black vynal, and still trying to decide what I want to do with the fog grills.

Thanks!

I bought the vynal at stickerCity (Here http://tinyurl.com/28dxbjz) I did it all myself. With some TV watching and beer drinking it took me 3-4 hours from tools out to tools put away. It wasn't hard it just took time. I see no reason why you couldn't paint it if you wanted to. I figured the vynal would be a good way to go because if I ever wanted to go back to chrome I could.
