Hi everyone, was looking at tinting my 4 door 2009 hatchback C4 and was after the factory window tint figures so I can work out how much more I can add so it's still within UK laws (talking about the front windows/windscreen not the backs). Any help is appreciated.

Fronts are already virtually on the legal limit. Everyone seems to make the same mistake they whack a 30% tint on I tinted windows without taking account that perfectly clear glass only allows around 87% of light through it.

So even a mild tint gets them very close to the legal limit.

Which is why very few companies will do it now.
