    By 30% do they mean 30% tint or 70% tint? I'm imagine they mean 30% tint and they are probably already that as standard.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    have what you want behind the b pillar. but illegal to tint any thing in front of b pillar. an arse hole copper could ask you to remove them or even give you 3 points n £60 fine........ i have 70% tints (dark smoke) never been pulled tho, but is hard to reverse some where that is dark

    Yes they mean 30% tint .I thought it would be too good to be true as they were not going to add anything to the premium.

    to answer your question, 30% tint allround would look exactly the car looks now, as it's got a 30% out of the factory.

    as had been said above, best not to touch the driver's and passenger's windows as i've heard that certain forces are really clamping down on tints to these windows.

    lets say you were to have an accident and you were at fault, if an insurance inspector came round to assess your car and saw the tints on the front they could refuse to pay anything for the repair as the vehicle does not conform to current legislations

    just worth bearing in mind
