    After all the talk of tints on here lately, I've gone and booked the car in for friday afternoon to get mine done.

    i know this might sound daft but how dark can you go with tints before it becomes illegal if at all?

    70% is the limit on fronts...go as dark as you want from the driver back!

    As far as i know, all tint film is illegal. This does not include security film such as Pentagon Supaglass.

    If you look in the lower corner of your drop glass, it should be marked AS2. This means that the window was factory tinted to the darkest possible legal spec and any film applied thereafter is illegal.

    I thought that it was only people like you and i in our everyday cars that get pulled over for this but i was proven wrong when our company MD was told to remove the front side window tints from his Range Rover. Oh how i laughed

    Nothing wrong with tints, i like them. Having said that, i went to look at a CDTi SRI at the weekend before choosing the Veccy that i have gone for.

    The CDTi had heavy tints, which look great on a black car but when you get inside its like a cave, very dark and moody. Was a nightmare to see out of the wing mirrors although it was peeing down with rain and i was test driving it on the M1 which doesn't help!

    apparently as-2 stands for American standards the number following relates to type of glass... number 2 is side and rear glass and number 1 is the front glass.

    I’d love to have my veccy tinted very light right round... however, I have 1 concern... insurance, we all know they try to wiggle out of paying and look for any excuse... isn't this an obvious one?

    you could always call them and ask how much it would add to your premium.

    What sort of money is it to tint a Vectra?
