    Smoked/Tinted headlights

    Hi all.

    I was walking to Maccy Ds the other day on my dinner and in the drive threw was a euro style passat, looked rather good. I noticed it had tinted front lights that had been done with that light tinting spray you can get. My question is, is this legal to do? I no you can get away with it on the rears but can you on the fronts.

    If you want to do something like that I'd advise you get some headlight protectors that go over the headlight, that way if you get pulled you can take them off there and then

    Dont think there is a law on it.

    Some SAAB's have tinted front lights
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    same effect can be obtained using a smoked lamix film...lighter smoke passes as legal but anything darker than 35% is illegal... end of day your risk!

    they probably would mate, if your heart is set on doing it then why not give it a bash ur self?
    if all else fails and you balls it up then go to the paint sprayers with ur tail between ur legs!!
