Hi Guy, I've had my kia sportage FE for 5wks now and love it. Mine's also black and has back windows darkened as per factory fit. You got yours darkened even further so would they look completely black from outside? do you have just the back 2 windows darkened + rear window. I think its illegal to darken the front 2 windows-am I right? How much did you pay and where if you don't mind me asking? Cheers Johnathan, Belfast

Thanks for your reply on the windows Guy. Scuse my ignorance here but did you have a "film" applied to your windows or was it some kind of fluid applied. I'm interested in doing this but need to know these details to see if what you had done can be done here in NI. It sounds really good -any chance of posting up a photo of your motor on this forum-I know it can be done as I've seen pics already. Cheers Johnathan

HI JOHNATHAN REF WINDOWS ITS A FILM THATS APPLIED TO THE WINDOWS ,THIS IS DONE WITH A WATER SPRAY WHICH THEN ACTIVATES SOME KIND OF REACTION WITH THE FILM AND GLASS IT BONDS TO THE GLASS AFTER ABOUT 3DAYS SO IN THAT PERIOD YOU CAN NOT USE YOUR WINDOWS AFTER THAT THERE IS A TIME WHEN THE ODD MARK WILL COME UP ON THE GLASS THIS IS JUST THE DRYING OUT ,WITH IN TWO WEEKS YOU HAVE A PERFECT FINISH .THE FILMS COME IN VARIOUS SHADES RIGHT DOWN TO FULL BLACK OUT IE LIMO WILL GET SOME PICS UP ASP PROBLEY THE WEEK END ITS DARK BOTH ENDS OF THE DAY FOR ME NOW DURING THE WEEK GUY
