I've been thinking.

 

FACT 1 - The side windows on a Z are factory tinted to the maximum legal limit, so if you put even the most gentle tinting film onto them you're breaking the law.

 

FACT 2 - You can sit in the driver's seat of a Z wearing the darkest pair of sunglasses that man can make, look out of the side windows and be doing absolutely nothing illegal.

 

 

Where's the logic in that? Is it me that's an a**, or the law?

And the law is also about seeing in to view the driver.

People who have strong tinted windows have something to hide and should be stopped at every possible opportunity. The only vehicles that require them are certain security vehicles and prison vehicles.

Today I walked past a 1-series BMW parked on the end of a row in a car park, and its rear windows were virtually black.  I thought I'd casually have a look through one of the side windows - ostensibly to see if it was a manual or otherwise (it was manual) - and I saw why it had tinted windows.  The interior looked like an explosion at a refuse tip.

If anyone remembers a ford advert a while back the group of cars of cars get to a canyon edge and a bridge appeared?  Those cars were heavily tinted.  The guy that did those did my Honda's - only problem was when tinted the car was broken into and its a mess.  Especially getting it done again.  The cars were a lot less hot in the Summer and actually on a black car it looked amazing. 

 

Plus when you are playing your Eminem you need to have that Gangster look.   :innocent:
