    Having had these in my previous Skoda Superb and being very impressed with them, I ordered up a set for the new W212.

    Fitted, or should I say, attempted to fit them over the weekend. Their fitment was really poor.

    The two-part shades for the rear window had to be overlapped to get them to fit, and the clips for the rear side doors weren't long/strong enough to hold the shades in place, a bit of buffering / tapping and they simply fell out.

    Sending them back for a refund. Booked in to a window tinting company to get a 30% tint fitted tomorrow instead...

    How did the tint go? I'm thinking of getting my S212 done.

    Much better than the shades.

    £140 and it took about an hour. I went for 20% and against the silver paint I think it looks good. 30% is closer to OEM / factory tint I believe.

    I used these guys...

    I've got some photo's somewhere, I'll add them later.

    Nice! I just called a local company who quoted £300 to tint mine!
