Professional Headlight Tinting




What is headlight tint?

Headlight tinting is a way of dimming, altering or enhancing the appearance of your car’s headlights. Vehicle lights, reflectors and indicators can all be tinted, and is a quick and cost-effective way of customising your vehicle. We offer a range of standard tinting films which can add style to any vehicle, and also offer a range of darkening shades. Although headlight tinting may seem simple, it is crucial you go to a company that has all the appropriate knowledge and legislation, to avoid any legal implications.

Why install tinted headlights?

The reasons for installing headlight tint are twofold: for preference and for safety. Firstly, custom headlight tint is a great way of modifying your car to your preference and style. It also makes your car stand out against other similar makes. Secondly, the colour and reflection of the headlight tint can actually enhance the driving experience. For those who drive at night or if a car breaks down, the tints can help reflect light to oncoming vehicles.

Are tinted headlights legal in the UK?

Yes, tinted headlights are legal in the UK as long as they adhere to the following law and regulations:

Headlights must emit light of the same colour and intensity. They must emit a steady colour of yellow or white and must be visible from a distance.

Brake lights must emit a steady red light. At least 50% of the light must be visible from the rear and must be visible from a distance.

Every indicator must emit an amber light. At least 50% of the light must be visible and they must be visible from a distance.

At least 50% of reflector light must be visible from a reasonable distance.

Failure to adhere to these regulations could result in drivers receiving a ‘prohibition notice’. This will stop drivers from driving their vehicles until the extra tint is removed. Here at Mint Mods, we have the experience and knowledge to ensure that your headlight tints adhere to regulations.

What are the benefits of headlight tinting?

Improve the aesthetics of your vehicle

One of the top reasons why people add tint to their headlights is to improve the aesthetics of their vehicle. Headlight tinting offers a stylish, sleek, and impressive appearance. We supply a range of shades including light, medium, dark and a selection of colours.

Enhanced protection

Headlight tinting adds an extra layer of protection to your headlights. This can help to make the headlights more resistant to damage, debris, dents and scratches in the long run. Additionally, maintenance costs will be reduced.

Improved visibility

Headlight tinting can improve visibility while driving. For example, when fog lights are tinted yellow, their performance is improved. Furthermore, transparent materials can be used to tint which will maintain the original visibility.

Longer lasting headlights

Tinting can significantly increase the lifespan of your headlights. It protects your headlights against dirt, UV rays and differing temperatures. This is a great benefit for low-maintenance needs that will last a lifetime.

Stand out

Tinted headlights go a long way in making your vehicle stand out from the crowd. Whether this is your first customisation project or one of many, headlight tinting is completed to superior standards.
