They are available but not cheap at £90, personally I am going to try a high quality chromevinylwrap at a slightly cheaper £5.50 a sheet

Warning. If you tint your windows notify your insurance company or your policy will be void. They will add about £100 for the modification.

Same issue for winter tyres....be very careful! Some insurers can try to increase the premium as they are classed as a modification. madness!

Surely only modifications that add value to you car should need to be notified 2 your insurer ! Tinting windows should be ok as long as they are compliant to light emmision law ( not absolutely black ) And fitting winter tyres make the car safer and should show a responsible attitude by the owner ! Just my thoughts on the issue All the best NASH 55

Anything that doesn't come as standard should be notified to the insurers. I've got an up black, but added a sunroof to my order, so need to add this as a mod when I get quotes.

Tinting windows is definitely classed as a mod (I have checked before). To check what it classed as a mod, some comparison websites will give you a list of things to check if you have them added.

From previous experiance anything not standard, even factory fitted optional extras will need to be notified, my friend had a golf and put gti wheels on and he had a bump and because they wern't the stamdard wheels for his model his insurance was void and he had a head ache sorting things out. Insurance companies will do there best to crawl out of paying out! I've notified my broker that i'm getting a new car and when I do I'm having tints done and that it was for security not for looks and he said its fine.
