    Default Thinking of getting your windows tinted?

    I went to a local window tint installer today as i am thinking of having them done and basically allthough some people have them done you are not supposed to have the front 2 tinted(he explained why) anyway i asked if it is an mot failure and he told me it is not now but it WILL be in the future! so what would happen if you have them tinted and they do bring it into the cryteria?

    Also


    I was thinking about tinting me rear lights and when speaking to the guy(although forgot to ask) and wondering if the same stuff used for windows could be used externally to tint them?

    ive got my windows tinted all round on nearly all the cars ive owned and they have always gone through the test,its illigal to have the fronts tinted they must let at least 70% light through pc plod has a little gadget that tests this and it works im been spanked a few times over this now and been told to take the front tints out,im so naughty.
    as for the rear lights if you have these tinted with that spray stuff by law you have to stick the tasteful reflectors on that come with the spray so other drivers can see your motor parked up at night, dont hurt me if this is wrong buts its what i have been told

    I currently have the rear blind but may end up going for the full blind kit on Ebay as if I don't like it I can re-sell it.

    I had just the rear screen done on the Astra on Wednesday, £50

    So, a couple of rear doors plus a larger rear screen, probably £125-150
