I don't want a limo tint just a light smoke a bit darker than the car comes. I have spoken to 3 sepeeate company's ans they have all said that the light smoke would be fine.

Have something to contribute?

I've had my drivers side and front passenger side door tinted with 10% tint
The factory tint is already up to 15% depending on the car.
So together that makes a maximum of 25% which is the legal MOT passable limit for the front door windows,
I also got the rears done 35% nice shade dark enough and not limo black.
Thanks to WWW.Atint.ie

I agree with I nath on the tinting of front windows, but as ever it's up to the individual.

I would hate to cause an accident because of too dark a tint.

Lenny, your Focus is looking spot on.

Cheers

Martin.

I appreciate everyone's views on this but your all thinking iam gunna have limo tint on the front when iam not. Iam only having it within the law which is up to 30 percent and iam only going for 10 percent on top of the manufacturers tinit.

All automotive windows have some level of factory tint up to a maximum 15%
See the difference on my drivers window,
Below the tint is up to 15%
And above in the tint is at most 25%
