    Default SRi Tinted windows

    Does the sri have tinted windows, and if so what % of tint is on the front windows, im looking to go very dark at the back and as dark as i can go on the fronts, My old astra 1.7 cdti sxi has dark fronts as standard.

    Yes it has and it really has the legal limit of tint allowed on the front and front side windows as even the lightest film available will take it over that limit in quite a major way.

    back when i was looking into getting mine done i was told that the standard tint on an SRI is the legal limit so i stuck with that on the front.

    my rears are 85% so you have an ide of how it looks........

    thats why i mentioned the astra cdti sxi as its standard tints are a lot darker at front, is it because it's a 53 plate, was the tint % changed at some point after 2003, whats the actual likely hood of being stopped for illegal tints if i dont draw attention by driving like a loon or have a loud exhaughst. Cheers for the pic.

    thats what i was thinking, im not talking going crazy dark at front sides. The only time i have seen police testing windscreens was at a cruize in hamilton where they were checking the boy racers cars leaving the carpark.
