Yup, there is a law on tints on front side windows, not sure what exactly it is, but my friend had his V40 Volvo tinted (nice :rolleyes: ) and the guy told him there was only a certain shade he was allowed up to, so he had the rear ones done darker!! :???: Now it looks like a van!!! :rolleyes:

its a law to be a certain darkness only allowed on windows. As standard cars have tinted glass from manufacturers sometime.

30% tint is the max allowed on an approved helmet. Anything over and they will give you a fine. Also, those mirror effect ones too.

I imagine car tint would be 30% also.

Why should limos be exempt?
Probaly has something to do with the same reason Vans are alowed. If they are carrying good worth over 10k(something like that) then they are alowed. So i guess the limo's are carrying people that are insured for alot of money and need to be keeped out of public eye.

Only a guess though

As far as I know

You can black out your rear window and rear side small windows

drivers and passenger sides no more than %30 And you can not put any tint on your front window.

Limos front window is always clear.

Kind Regards
