    not sure , i have had my windows tinted medium on the front , and never been pulled , the police can tell you to take them out , not give u a fine and points , they give u a producer , and u have to get them took out , then get a garage to say they have been taken out on the producer ,

    he is a mate of mine , that is why he does it so cheap , he usually charges about Ł180 to do a s3 , which is still cheap , and his results are second to none , i can get his number if anyone is interested ,

    Tints are always bit of a grey area i know for sure you can ahve the rear windows asdark as you want but they need to see you through the front windows to make them legal.

    Be carefull on a silver car though mine came up really dark next to silver paintwork.

    mine are dark tints done when i bought the car. got pulled on the M25 the other night for them, he let me off with a warning but told me to take them off, he said if hes sees me again then its a £30 fine and a producer, light smoke is ok on the front, he also said if there is less than 25% light coming through the front side windows it was 3 points and a £60 fine. i'm a bit weary around coppers on the motorway now. i just drive with the windows down now! LOL
    good job he didn't catch me going for it against a noggy blue B6 S4!
    lets just say it would have been an instant ban!

    Im pretty certain the law states you have to allow 70 or 75% of light throught the front window... and as the glass itself restricts the light its almost impossible to get a tint that light... but Ive had a light tint on the front of mine with dark round the back for months... touch wood not been pulled. Also with the back being dark it gives the impression of being alot darker.

    Sounds a complete rip off! average price I think would be Ł170-180... or if you can pay cash you can find it cheaper like I did.

    stick with light smok on a silver car and you can't go wrong, I had a previous silver GTi done dark, took it back the next day and paid again - didn't want the drug dealer image.


    On my current S3 I'm considering just getting the rear done with 50% and this should provide a smoked effect all round.
    I usually pay around £150, take a look on ukmkivs-forum there is a guy on there user name Tinterliam, he does an excellent job is now self employed so will travel if you can get anyone else interested, he is based in Leicestershire.

    Don't know if it's worth it or not, but i'm happy to swap my tinted glass (rears and 4 side windows) for some standard clear glass as I don't like tints.

    Nottinghamshire, the tints were done a month before I bought the car so can't say who they were done by. (They did a good job though)

    As for swapping glass i've got no idea at all, hence why i'm not sure if it's worth doing or not. - I am going to either get them removed or buy new glass all round at some point though depending on how easy/hard it is to get the tints removed. (I can imagine it being a fiddly/time consuming job removing the film)

    It takes 10min per glass too remove the tint if you know what you doing. The drivers doors are easy too take the glass out of. The rest are a pain in the @ss!
