Trist I have to say that your really brave trying to do it your self. I had ago at that it aint to easy u got have alot of patience. Only thing i did wrong was that i didnt take the sticky backing off lol so it just sucktiond on! What a prat hay! but to get every little crease out can be hard.

I say its worth paying the money to get it done Professionally can't really remember how much mine was but i got it done at car2tint in huntingdon.

i read somewhere that you can have up to a 25% tint on your windscreen allowing 75% of light through.

yeah there are laws about the level of tint you can have on your front 3 windows, above 75% and you're fine, below that and you can face a 2 grand fine if you don't take it off, :mad:

your not allowed anything on your windscreen iirc

and then 75% on your front two, and whatever your want on the others

im pretty sure you can. every website about the laws of tinting have all said you need to allow 75% of light through the windscreen. meaning you can have up to a 25% tint on your windscreen.
ive looked at several websites and theyve all said this, can someone confirm? :rolleyes:

except punto mk2 (not sure about mk1) front windows come with a slight tint on them already straight out the factory so any tint on them will be illegal.

legality wise its the front you gotta worry about, 25% should be fine
