Here is the lowdown on tints: i got this from a forum i used to be with.

It is illegal for any tinting film to be fitted front of the b-pillar after Jan 04, so you can now only get your rear window and rear passenger windows tinted.

VLT = Visual Light Transmission

The front windows must allow a minimum of 70% VLT, the lightest tint film only allows 50% VLT.

The glass that comes with most cars, tinted by the manufacturer, is around 80% VLT, so even the lightest smoke film on top of that reduces it to around 30% VLT.

Hope this helps :up:

If you have tints -

Between 30% and 70% VLT (fitted before Jan 04) you will normally be issued with a rectification notice, giving time to get them removed (normally 10 days).

If fitted after Jan 04 or less than 30% VLT, there is a good chance you will be prosecuted.

Window tint fitters could also face prosecution if they fit tints forward of the b-pillar after Jan 04.
