    Exclamation tinted windows???

    just wondering what the legal limit is for tinting the windows of a car?
    i know you can fully tint the rear windows but what about the drivers and passenger side windows....?

    also whats the consiquences if you get pulled by the muskers/police and your windows are tinted above the legal limit?

    cheers

    25% tint so 75% of light can pass through

    If it's got OE tinted glass, the windscreen and front side windows will already be at the legal limit - plod are pulling more and more cars for illegal front tints, they'll probably check everything while you're stopped.

    You don't legally need windows behind the driver, eg vans, so you can tint as dark as you want.
