    Default Tints, Have you been pulled ??

    I am thinking to put tints on the car, with a little un on the way I think that it`s a good excuse. Though I am not overly keen on just doing the rears. How many of you have been pulled because of them, whether it be just the rears done and you got a pull anyhoo, or the fronts as well. Maybe even you have been made to remove them. I fancy a light tint on the front and darker at the back.

    Estate comes standard with tinted rears and I tinted the front to match...fronts are slightly lighter than the rears...and at 30% I believe.

    As you know Tommy, I've got my fronts and rears tinted. My fronts are barely legal and I've been 'talked to' a couple of times about these. One officer even took a light reading, but to be honest I don't think he wanted to write me a ticket as I never got one (must of been how polite I was!)

    My opinion is as long as there is a noticeable difference to the rears most officers won't give them a second look. Plus at the moment there's isn't a great deal of light meters around plus the constabularies have bigger fish to fry.

    Cheers guys, 2 pulled for them, I don`t like the idea of just doing the rears, but maybe a light smoke on the fronts just to make the difference a bit less obvious. Can`t be bothered with being pulled, and if the wife got pulled she castrate me !!!

    I've heard of stories that people have been asked to remove the tints right there on the spot, and others have been given a ticket and a time limit for re-inspection.

    Personally - I'd rather get hauled off to the cop shop rather than pull my tints off myself

    No hassles here Tommy and the tints are great for the kiddies

    EDIT: I only have the rears tinted at the moment but at the end of the month when my insurance is up for renewal the fronts are getting done too...

    I've had all mine done, all the same tint and have never been pulled.

    My little bro also had all his done on his civic but did get pulled and made to have the fronts removed, although that was at a regular falkirk cruise where the cops are almost always there with their light meter.

    I'd really like mine done (inc fronts) but like you Bainie I'm concerned with being pulled - could be a waste of money if you were - my balance is favouring just the rears at the mo - even though I don't think it looks right....
