    Hi markos37, you have to be a little careful when tinting your windows to make sure that you keep them within the law. This link sets it out for you.

    I have had a Vauxhall Cavalier with tinted windows since 1997. It has been through 13 MOT's without a problem, but as I recently discovered they do not actually test window light penetration during the MOT test. The police have special meters to measure the light and can either remove the tint or take your car if you windows are too tinted.

    I had mine done in 1997 by Pentagon. I had Limo rear and rear side, and Midnight to the drive and passenger fronts. The front windscreen is untouched. I've attached a couple of photos for you, one from 1997 and one from a few months ago.

    The one big problem you will run into with tinted windows is that if you are involved in an accident, your insurance may be invalidated by the window tint. So it is wise to have it done professionally and get a certificate that proves it is legal.

    Anyway, hope this info is useful.

            Ta, the front tint was done to match the factory rears.

              Here is a pic from when I brought mine, you can really see a full side view I will try to get more pics soon. I dont have any tint on the front & I do like it that way, limo black in the back does lessen your visability

              Pic has not worked...
