What are the legal requirements for the front windows? 75% light? Or am I wrong?

I am also thinking of getting mine done but I want to comply with the law, don't really want to spend all that money and get pc plod telling me I am breaking the law.

but what a brave boy

all it takes is cops in an unmarked car and if they spot you but can't
take the tints off their and then - off to the pound it will go and along plus a nice chat with some officers, more than likely a nice fine and a walk home

looks great

i agree- they normally won't stop you for something minor like this

if they do stop you for speeding or something else and he's in a bad mood, then they will probably fine you for that aswell and have you rip them off in front of them

but who cares when they look good

AM I right in thinking there is no legal limit for the rears?

yep rear can be as dark as you like - although very dark rears with lightly tinted fronts won't look right.

Was thinking about Limo black rears and non tinted fronts, mainly so I can transport 4K worth of bikes in the back without people knowing what I have in the back.

Do you think this will look really bad?

I guess if you have to have it done for security reason then it's gotta be done

as always the look of it will come down to personal preference and taste

make a new thread with a side profile pic of your car, I'm sure someone will photoshop limo rears on for you so you can see what it will look like

It looks great IH.

Did the company that did it have you sign a disclaimer or anything, to say they told you they were over the legal limit?

They do look good though.
