Quarter window louvre panels?

Recommended Posts

I've seen these louvre panels and have wanted to get them but can't find any info on the UK laws with these 🤷‍♂️. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Someone said that it may need to be registered as a van if I put these on, is this true? Sorry I know that sounds ridiculous but I want to make sure I won't break any laws putting them on 🤔. I know mustangs have the rear window ones but I know you don't need to be able to see out of the rear window, just not sure about the side ones 😂

As long as front side windows and windscreen are clear you can so whatever you like with the others.
Only way your car could be reclassed as a van would be if you remove the rear seats and convert the back to solely carry cargo.
If you want the vents then dig out.

There not any different to having a fiesta van in the sense that theres no rear side window,

Personally they would be more practical if manufactured in clear perspex which had a dark tint applied which would present the same effect while still functioning as a window for the rear passengers

Thank you guys for the input! That clears it up for me 😊 insurance isnt an issue as I'm with Adrian flux. Clear perspex would be more practical but hopefully they aren't too dark when I go to buy them!
