Default Dark tint

Has anyone been pulled over for having a dark tint that fall short of 35% VLT? I used to have 15% on my dual cab (used for private purposes) and never had an issue despite being pulled over several times for RBT. Maybe that is because cops think my dual cab is for business. But 15% on a Pajero?

Never had a problem with tint on any vehicle (touch wood)

I guess it comes down to the attitude you have when you get pulled over as to how picky they get when looking for defects....

I always have 15% and have never had a problem with the police even looking twice. Only would think they would be looking at defecting because of tint if you were doing the wrong thing and they were looking for anything they could to get you for something

The tint guy told me that he did a CRV the day before he did mine and the driver wanted 5%. So 15% does not sound too bad now.

In 2013, we bought a new Pajero and a new Outlander. Neither of them had any decent form of window tinting, so we looked around for someone to do the job for us. We got the Outlander done in Tamworth because it was summer, it was damned hot without tinting and we were already there. We asked for the darkest possible tint for the rear doors etc, and the darkest allowable tint for the front doors. I cannot remember the light transmission values, but 5% and 15% sound about right. The tinting made a big difference to the Outie so when we were next visiting Tamworth with the Pajero we took it back to get that one done as well, but we chose to have only 15% tint because the 5% was too dark. Even 15% (or whatever the darkest allowable tint is) is too dark for me to feel comfortable driving in city environments. Fortunately I rarely go near a major city so this is not such an issue, but if I lived in the city, I would strip the tint from the front windows and go back to original glass. I believe that dark tinting is a serious safety issue.
