Mine are 35% alround which look smart but think that might be illegal now.



Mine where £150 professionally done but I got a bit of deal on mine through a mate ;)

The police can't be that bothered with front windows at the moment as I've never been stopped for them.

Suppose it depends what mood they're in at the time!

having tint on the front 2 windows is NOT illegal.

But it is illegal if the tint stops a set ammount/percentage of light comming thru.

Used to be that 35 % tints were Legal but due to cars comming with a slight tint from factory (even tho its not noticable) then the windows would be darker than the sed 35% of the tint film.

driver and passenger front windows have to let thru 70% of light to be legal.

if ur not sure then contact ur local vehicle testing stationa s they will have the written law.

I got mine done there last tuesday, I got them medium all round which looks good. When I was there I asked him what the legal limit is and he said that medium is border line, its legal but its as far as ya can go. The back of course you can go as dark as you like

medium is only legal if it meets the above light transmission requirements.

I believe its illegal to have any tint on the windscreen (although i recently read on teletext that you can have up to 25% on the windscreen???)

Your front sides no more than 35% (mine are 25%)
You can have any % on all other windows! (I think i had 50 all round)

It cost me £120 for all 5 windows, only took the guy about an hour to do

Its confusing because all of the windows in cars are tinted already by about 15% I think!

The legislation has changed this year to say that anything from the B pillar onwards can not be tinted more than what came with the car as new. So basically no tints on front windows. No police know about it anyway because there are loads of cops in my family and none of them knew about it!

Dont quote me on it but I'm sure I have read this on one of the topics here somewhere!

Ive had mine for months now and not had any bother....

They wont pull you just for having tinted windows - you will get pulled if you are driving stupid etc....
They will then fine you for them as they have got you for something else...

Hope that makes sence :lol:

if you don't attract police attention then i don't see why they would pull you over. i always drive past police and they give me a smile.

maybe they're in love with me? :shock:
