Have you fellas got any pics of the glass? I'm still a bit 50/50, considering they're unlikely to be able to match the darkness. Will it look a bit funny? I see some later model liberty GT's with the rear windows darker than the front and to me it makes them look like chauffeurs' cars.

Matched, just go to non-dealer tint. OziCozi did my front windows with 3M... great work

Thanks for the photos! I've been quoted a fair bit for it since I've finalised the price already. Can tint provide the same amount of sun protection as that?

The fronts should be pretty cheap and don't let them con you into having films at the back. I have a 35% tint, and you can't tell it is lighter. My photos is in the official 1M sections.

Nah, it's all good Ian, "This car has been professionally run in, not exceeding the cars limits at any point in time."

Limits = Redline, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th AND 6th gears
Limits = 250kph

Once production is scheduled then there should be a VIN#. Mine had a VIN# about 3 weeks prior to completed production, prior to that there should always be a production # for allocated orders. Below is what I got 1st week of Dec, car finished production in 4th week of Dec.
