    The only issue is taking my time lol, hairdryer to warm up the tint while applying to the curves is needed, it is quite easy to crease if not careful tho, but I think it's worth it. Hopefully get the rears done tomorrow and possibly the headlights if I get the time.

    Just giving the police an excuse to pull you over for a chat. Especially those who tint front lights. No doubt if you get stopped and asked to remove it it will be all the fault of the police and not the fact that lights are there for safety not to just look pretty. By all means for shows and the like. Even replacing them with clear lenses or HIDs but obstructing ANY light source for the means of vanity is just daft. If your insurance was to note that in a crash you tinted lights they would/could use that as a get out of paying up. Not to mention where front lights have the fly eye tint. You lose a lot of the lumen output as you cover the lense in some way or another. Just as daft as front dark window tints. Just my opinion I suppose but backed up by legislation too.

    MOT guide as of 2012

    Inoperative or less than 50% of the light
    sources illuminating

    Obscured so that less than 50% of the lamp
    illuminating surface is visible from the front
    or rear as appropriate

    Not visible from a reasonable distance due
    to excessive damage, deterioration, or
    having products on the lens or light source

    Shows a light other than red to the rear and
    white to the front (or yellow if a front
    position lamp is incorporated in a yellow
    headlamp)

    Adversely affected by the operation of any
    other lamp, e.g. dual-function lamps on
    foreign vehicles.

    Really? It would be an excuse for traffic to give you a pull regardless. Anything at all over your front lights will reduce the light output. I am up for almost any mod but messing with front/rear lights and brake lights in any manner that would reduce their lumen output imho is just daft. Someone hits you from behind and states to insurance that your rear brake lights were tinted or you hit say a deer at night and the insurance folk note your fly eyes it just gives them a get out clause. Go mod daft but anything safety related is there for a reason.
