Heatwave Car Window Tints

I was looking a car DIY window tints like these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Active-Film-Medium-Tinting-1mx50cm/dp/B00PAS77EO/ref=sr_1_7?s=automotive&ie...

Has anyone had experience of them and do you have to tell your insurers?

No need to inform Insurers but check the legality of tinted windows on vehicles.

Check with your local Traffic Police... to find out the legal requirement on "opacity level" of tinted windows.

I would recommend asking your insurance company, if they need to be informed, as, technically, it is a "modification" to the vehicle, and if you put in a claim, they MAY use that as an excuse for not paying out, if you have not informed them prior to the accident, that you had the modifcation done to the vehicle.

Check here first before tinting your glass...

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Re: Heatwave Car Window Tints

As far as I can see none of the range of tints is suitable for the windscreen, they are all too dark.  You will be just on the limit if you put the 70% on the front side windows; you can put whatever you fancy on the rear and back windows.  Is it worth it?
