Yeah on nearly all modern day cars you can't legally tint the front side windows.

You have to have a minimum of 70% of light coming through the glass.

Most modern day cars have a 20% tint in the glass already.

the front screen is a complete no no to tints.

the rear side and screen can have anything you want..

I had tints from factory on my MINI and then had the front side windows matched, but had to removed them at the side of the road so plenty of experience with them...

Staffordshire police are hot for this too along with illegal font plates right now...
