Window Blinds
« on: June 17, 2012, 10:41:47 AM »
Ive been wanting to cut down the glare inside my 110 for a while now.

Window tinting is the usual route. The best job is done by Pentagon in Reading, but it's not cheap.

So I looked at alternatives and the RR chaps speak highly of VanStyle's window blinds.

A set for a 90 CSW is 110 delivered. That's all rear windows including the alpine lights. Dead easy to fit and easily removed.

OK, so no security be benefits, but I really like them.

Opinions?

They either hold in place because they have metal frames that support themselves inside the window aperture, but VanStyle supply discreet black plastic self-adhesive hooks for each blind.

I only used them on the rear sides and the back door. The rest spring-hold in place very nicely.

Do you get ones for the rear door also or is it only the side windows?

Rear door and windows to the side of that as well.

It's an 8 piece set. The rear door blind is in two halves and it's shaped for the high-level brake light.

Have to agree, that is a good price and they look good :up 

My Dad had those on his Discovery (fitted by Land Rover  :eek ) and they worked well at keeping the back of the vehicle cooler for the dog.

Had a full set of Genuine Land Rover ones on my old Discovery and they worked a treat, keeping the rear several degrees cooler, only issue I had is they are not little finger proof and had to replace the near side rear passenger door one a couple of times as my son kept destroying them.
Not usually here anymore :(

Are you thinking roller blinds?



I have been looking at those but as yet I can't find the size I want which are 650mm wide.



Main objective is to keep the temp down while in Spain.

Not roller blinds.

Simpler and easier than that.
