    On my old C4 (Black) I had limo tints but removed them after a few months, this time I'm gonna go really light for the vectra.

    I think its a case of not over doing it

    Personally I'd avoid getting the fronts done as the bobbies love pulling you over and I know of a few chaps who get pulled over a few times a month and the fronts aren't even tinted that heavily. 80 on the back!

    must allow 70 % natuaral light through - they will be partially tinted to start with so look at the bottom corner of the window should tell you the current tint ans then you can only apply the difference upto 30%

    You cannot add anything to the standard glass on the fron as its already at 76% so only has 6% left.

    I have one off limo black on the back... the tinter said limo black with nothing on the front would look silly.... and after look at pics on ones they have done i have to agree!!
