    Are you sure the fronts are legal as I was always told when your windows come factory fitted tinted,If you add a tint to these then it would be Illegal.

    I might be wrong

    Wrong! - and if that's what the tinter told you he's talking cobblers. If you've got a 65% transmission tint on your fronts, then as they are already tinted in the glass to around 70% transmission then you'll now have a transmission % of around 45%.

    David - basically even the lightest tint film on the fronts will drop them below the 70% limit, so illegal basically. Whether you will get stopped with a light tint is another matter as it may not look obvious, but that's the risk you take.
