    Nopes, even the lightest tint will fail. The manufacturers OEM tints (you know the greenish or blueish tint on most cars) blocks about 15-20% apparently...

    I know its the law to have 70% light to pass, but I did say "may pass".

    It depends on the local Bill and MOT station weather you get nailed or not! This in my opinion is passes my MOT is acceptable. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    An here i was thinking he was talking about smoked clusters!!! Yes i think light tints look good, Say a medium to light but more towards light, not too dark!

    Plan to get them done myself eventually.

    Is it illegal to get a lightly tinted sunstrip??? Like the kind you find on mercs? Like 4-5 inches from the top of the windscreen just say?

    Sunstrips are fine, unless they are a foot and a half thick, and Burberry patterned...

    Here is a pic of mine. Mine allow 70% in, they are 30% tints all round, it just makes the back look darker because of the rear window.
