Legal Tint in Germany?

I am moving to Germany soon and would like to get my windows tinted before I leave the States.

I google searched and all I can find is 'ABG standard' used for the tint. Can anyone explain that to me please?

I just want to make sure I don't have to get the tint removed later because it is too dark.

Thanks.

I lived there from 94-02 with 20% and not once did I or anybody I know get pulled over or hassled about tint. Not saying there isn't a law, but just my experiance. Oh BTW.. you are going to have a blast there.

Thanks Pikachu, so are you saying you had 20% front/rear side windows and back windows?

I know I'll have a blast, I was there from '94 - '99 with the Army. I was in Kaiserslautern that time. Going to Vilseck this time. I love Germany!

Talking

Listen it's not a for sure thing, I work in Kaiserslautern I have contacts that work at Vehicle Reg. I'll give them a call (I'll try tommorow!) and find out what is the actuall German Reg., my ****'s tinted as well but it's the stock tint and I'll be pretty much If I get stoped for something like that. As of what I've been told is that Tint isn't allowed period, but they probably figure "Eh, He's an American" Even if you do get stoped just slip them a $20 or so and they'll just let you go off with a "Warning!!!"

Thanks for the info! I really do appreciate it. I get to Germany on the 14th of AUG but won't have my car back until a couple days after that.

Wow a thread back from the dead.. I almost forgot I asked this.

Yeah, the new German law along with the USAREUR regs say no tint on either the front driver or passenger windows.. Glad I didn't get any tint before I left the States! I hope you are enjoying Wiesbaden.. nice place
