Q1:Will tinting my headlights with COVEX be MOT compliant?
 
A:New MOT guidelines issued in 2012 state that "products on the headlight or lens that obviously reduces the lights intensity or changes its colour will become a reason for failure". COVEX has no effect whatsoever on the light shape and colour. It has also been manufactured to have as minimal effect as possible on light output with a VLT (visible light transmission) of 80%. Please note however that light output may vary depending on vehicle model and age.

Q2:Will tinting my headlights with COVEX be safe?
 
A:COVEX has been designed and manufactured to have as minimal effect as possible on light output and has an 80% VLT (visible light transmission). However it is important to note that reduction of light output will vary according to the vehicle model and age. It is therefore the user's responsibility to ensure that light output after application is adequate to maintain safe driving conditions. Any use of tinting films on headlights, indicators and fog lamps is done so at the driverís own risk. If you have any doubts regarding safety, either before or after the installation, please speak to your installer.
