Is It Illegal To Have Your Windows Tinted Dark?

It is illegal to have tinted windows darker than our Octane tint as this is absolutely the darkest legal tint you can have. Octane has a deep black appearance, is exclusive to us and is our most popular car tint. The tinted shade does vary between states (we have two dark coloured shades available) but it will be the darkest legal tint you can have in the state you’re based in. And the good news is that in QLD, NSW, ACT, NT, WA & SA, recent law changes have meant you can go even darker! In addition to looking super cool and offering ultimate privacy, Octane has some other great benefits too:

  • Heat and glare is blocked
  • Protection from 99% of harmful UV rays
  • Lifetime Nationwide Warranty
  • Installed by professional installers
  • High quality (government certified by ARPANSA)

We also have free courtesy cars (where available) for your use whilst we tint your vehicle and you can also get interest-free financing through OpenPay or Zip Pay – you can split your purchase over 3,6,9, or 12 months with ZERO interest!
