    It's already tinted to the legal limit. So you can't tint the front windows. only the back.

    Welcome to the club, I got mine tinted MK5 3 Door SXI.

    if ya look at my signature link thing, in that pic (not great pic) but i had light 50% on front n medium 35% on the rear, now iv changed it, iv got dark 20% rear, medium 35% on the fronts, looks great with car bein black,

    u cud tint fronts n if u get stopped put both windows down coz the cops cant force u to put the windows up, u can politely refuse n nuthin they can do bt it.

    they can force you if they believe you are breaking the law, i will just get back done then i dont need to worry :P

    cause if they do manage to catch me with front windows tinted you then have to pay for it took off :/

    waste of money really

    You can take front tints of yourself easy.
    but not worth the risk or the hassle.

    true, but then u got the prob if u crash and police check ya tints it could invalidate your insurance for being over the legal limit, the limit is set for saftey of other people...

    Your making your car illegal, It will draw unwanted attention.
    Yes it looks cool.
    Then police tell you to remove it.

    The putting your windows up? warrant?

    If your car is illegal i'm sure they can do something else like take it of you.


    Fact remains if you get all cocky and say no. then there gonna treat you like a dick.

    You'll be on there shit list.

    Why go out of your way to bend the rules and then get all cocky and snappy when you get pulled up about it. FFS it's petty shit like this that gets on my tits. I've tinted my Zafira but not on the fronts because they are already to the limit and then had dark smoke all round elsewhere. Why invite the police to just point out how much of a naive person you are. The laws are there for a reason. Obey them and get on with the rest of your life.
