    Mine are at 30%. Any darker and it will start to look like a van in my opinion.

    Pics here and here.

    no problems with the headlight tint - really simple install.

    I believe if my memory serves me right, I've always had 30% on rears including rear window, didnt effect the auto dimming rear view mirror either & fronts I think were 10%, which made the fronts slightly darker shade than from oem glass, never been pulled once in 10 years of cars tinted so must be ok at that level, I wouldnt advise going any darker given the light meter happy coppers in UK now, ask MattAndrew about that one.

    Cheers again, my brother in law is a cop and he basically said if stopped it would depend on who and what mood the copper was in, i'm in the fire service and have a wee badge on the window (that and a police badge borrowed from him), usually helps me get a "ticking" off with things.

    although with the window tints and these "German" style number plates i might be asking for trouble. will keep the original plates in the car so i can brass my case for immediate change.
