One @ Gaydon? I do not recall rear blackened out windows. I have had a conversation with the owner. I think it is best for his sake that there is no speculation about the potential outcome.

Vehicle stopped due to excessively tinted windows?

This looks like a standard factory tint on the rear doors

I do not have blacked out or tinted windows. The front screen has a gradient tint, however I do have factory fitted rear blinds for the rear window and all of the rear side windows and they are electrically operated. I wonder what the take is on this.

There is no law for tinting of rear side windows, just front side windows and windscreen. The front windows seem like standard factory tint at most to me!
