The above post is pretty much there, you can do what you like with the rear windscreen and windows. Front windows must let 70% of light through, and front windscreen 75%... which TBF is pretty much where the Manufacturer has them already.
I'm not sure about headlights, I'll see what i can dig out for you.

If caught with excessive window tints then you will generally get a PG9, Your car isn't seized but you are prohibited from using it until the defect is rectified. PG9s for tints are usually deferred for a few hours to allow the driver to get home or a suitable place to have them removed if they drive with the windows down.
From the B pillar back you can go as dark as you like but have to accept liability if the tint level is considered a contributing factor in any RTC or incident.
In regards to headlight tinting, generally as long as it does not alter the colour/coverage of or reduce the level of transmitted light then you are usually ok.
Flyeye or Lamin-X is usually accepted as safe for road use but you are best to check with suppliers as to the regulations pertaining to on-road usage.
