Tinting Car Lights Using a New and Innovative Product in Grays, Essex

Many car owners are always looking for new ways to modify their vehicle, and tinting the lights is a popular choice. At Autotints, in Grays, Essex, we provide a premium-quality headlight and tail light tinting service that uses the innovative SPi Vision product. SPi Vision is an exciting new headlight and tail light tinting mesh that sticks to the outer surface of any light, creating a factory-finish dark smoke effect that transforms the look of your vehicle. Autotints also offers tinting for home and office windows.

The Benefits of SPi Vision

SPi Vision’s tinting mesh is waterproof and durable, so once applied it can be washed and treated like any other surface on your vehicle. There is also no need to remove the light fitting during application. SPi Vision has excellent durability with great resistance to most road and weather conditions, and it is manufactured to conform to most light contours. The installation process can be quick, and the mesh can be removed with little or no adhesive residue. If you have any questions regarding this product or our fitting service, please contact us and we will be happy to help.

MOT Rules and Regulations

Before installing the SPi Vision mesh, please read and understand the MOT regulations regarding headlight and rear lights. The regulations state:

  • 1.2: Headlights
    A pair of headlights must: emit light of substantially the same colour and intensity, emit a steady colour of either white or yellow, be visible from a reasonable distance.
  • 1.3: Brake Lights
    A brake light must emit a steady red light. At least 50% of the lamp must be visible from the rear. Light must be visible from a reasonable distance.
  • 1.4: Reflectors
    At least 50% of the reflecting surface must be visible from a reasonable distance.
  • 1.5: Indicators
    Every indicator must emit amber light. At least 50% of the lamp must be visible. Light must be visible from a reasonable distance.
  • Masks or Converter Kits
    A headlamp or rear tail lamp altered in this way is not a reason for MOT rejection so long as: light outputs are not adversely reduced, it emits the appropriate correct colour, and the mask is securely attached.

SPi - Vision Guide Note

Please note that high-intensity discharge lightbulbs (H.I.D/Xenon) may cause excessive heat build-up under sustained high beam use. This may result in the SPi Vision vinyl melting. Normally, if the high-beam bulb has a silvered tip or a cowling in front of it, then this should be acceptable. If you are fitting this product to headlights, check your headlight configuration before applying. Those light clusters that have a protective coating or lacquer are unsuitable for applying SPi Vision. Like many vinyls, it may damage this coating when the SPi Vision is removed. You should check for a protective layer before any installation of the SPi Vision.

SPi Vision may not be suitable for installation on non-factory or aftermarket-fitted light clusters, or where high-intensity bulbs have been installed above factory guidelines. You must check before installation that the headlight is suitable. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
