Black Tint

Recommended Posts

get limo black or dark smoke for the back 3! and a very light coloured one for the front 2, light smoke for example! It will let 90% of light through

you'd get pulled over for 90% :ph34r:

Come on guys! get it sorted! I found 3 places near me willing to tint the front windows as long as it was a cash in hand job!

If you dont ask you dont get! :)

Ive got 50% blue all round, looks the bizz, no receipt! :thumbsup:

I thought you were allowed back windows fully tinted, the rear 3, the front 2 partially tinted, and the windscreen cannot be tinted at all.

Yes you are! I mean, what about delivery vans that have silver tint on and you cant see out of them at all? What about vans which hav wooden boards cut to the shape of the window so you cant see out of them?

Also.... what about riot vans which hav limo black tint on the whole back end

Ive just had dark smoked tints fitted to the back and rear side windows and a medium smoke to my front side windows but i had to sign a disclamer as they are illigal,

the company i used wouldnt tint the fronts any darker even if i signed a disclamer for them too

and you can hardly tell the difference between the front and back anyhow, still a shame as i was after limo black all round :ph34r:

They can do loads of stuff if they want but generally its £30 and they send you on your way, there not very dark any how no different to what you see on most X5's Mercs and LandRovers, if I did have Limo black it might be a different story.

Piccys will be in my garage within the next half hour, updating it now, also just put up a new post with lated piccys :thumbsup:

Nah, I think if you had the tints that allow like 50% light in and not the limo tints then it would look alright.

Plus it makes the car look mysterios in a way :ph34r:

Aye..but the delivery vans with the silver tint...don't have any rear view mirrors anyway...and have bald tires too....

Besiodes mirror tints only stop ya looking in...pretty much 100% looking out.

Police arn't cracking down yet...but they will, and it will more than a £30 fine...will also be points on ya licence for not driving a roadworthy vehicle and also you'll be ordered to remove them within 7 days.

At the moment...it depends on what kind of day the coppers having.

Same with mobiles...they arn't too bothered really...

No point in window tints. Why pay to get something done that is illegal and could cost you even more money! If it was a quick £30-£40 job all round then maybe... but its not. And to get them done accoring to the law its still an unjustified amount of money. 30% isnt enough to cool you from direct sunlight - correct me if i'm wrong.

And to have the rears tinted excessivly is only really justified in people carriers, taxi's and limo's where you want to keep rear passangers cool - well lets be honest - how often do we take or care about rear passengers?

In the paper I read about how police found a car with windows tinted so much that they let only 3% of light through! 3%! Its dangerous and stupid.

Then again, its all up to the individual - I am not going to think any less of anyone who has them done, as long as they aren't stupid dark and don't drive like a pratt.

Just my thoughts :)

P.S. I do think they look cool, but not at the price.

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
