you can get them done yourself,however they are illegal as you have got to have a 70% light intake,so if you can hardly see inside then your likely to be picked on by the police :rolleyes:

Mine cost £130 all round from over revs. And yes, they're illegal.

Lol, god no!

Rear window and 4 side windows. The front side ones are of a lighter tint tho to allow more light thru - but still illegal

I dont think anyone would do it for you. It's dangerous. And you would look stupid asking imho, they'd think you were the police trying to shop them.

I know what ur saying jemmane I've definatly seen some motors bout town with the front windscreen looking tinted. I got mine tinted at r-tec autos (Rear window & 4 sides, not front windscreen) & I did ask the question, but I threw it in in away not to sound stupid. Well that was the plan, when the guy was showing the tint films and talking business I just told him that I've seen some pretty gangstar rides going bout town with what looked like tinted front windscreens. He told me that it's 100% illeagle and they wont do it and its either a.) a DIY job that the owners done him self with tint film or b.) it just looks tinted from the fact that the other windows are tinted out in a really dark shade. I dont think you'll find a place that would tint your front windscreen.

But its darker isn't it? Your visibility will be markedly reduced if you were driving on a dual carriageway in the pouring rain. It's why single seater racers don't have tinted visors when racing in overcast/rainy conditions.

Also pedestrians and other drivers need to see you as you may need to use hand signals - how would they see you if you're behind a tint?
