Window Tinting: IAW with German Law, vehicles with aftermarket window tinting on the windshield, front driver's side, and front passenger side window are not authorized. Vehicles that are being shipped in connection with a new assignment to USAREUR must have the film removed before shipping. Soldiers or civilians that have shipped their vehicles without meeting the current German law must have the film removed before going through USAREUR inspection station.

There is a new law in Germany where you cannot have any kind of tint in your car. It doesn't matter how dark the tint is. Two things can happen if you do get a tint. one, get a ticket if you get pulled over by the polizei. Two, if you try to reregister your car they will not pass your inspection until you take the tint out. Hope this helps. I am leaving Germany in 4 weeks so i'll wait till i get to the states and get my tint there.

Nothing on the front and front sides except clear safety on clear glass. You can put film on 10% of the front surfaces where it doesn't interfere with the drivers view which translates into a visor strip in the front and some nice small designs on the front sides. Except for those stripes every window must show a stamp. Every film type has it's own Stamp/number. You must carry a document (ABG) showing the same number. By the way most Germans believe that Black Limo tint would be alllowed in the US on the back and all sides, thank's to Hollywood.

How dark can you tint your windows in Germany? — Dark tinted glass on the front drivers and passengers doors or on the front windshield that comes down from the top of the windshield more than 4 inches that makes it impossible to see the driver and occupants is prohibited by German law. What is the darkest you can legally tint your windows? A 5% is the darkest tint you can get, and you can’t see through 5% tinted car windows at all. In most states, a 5% tint is illegal.

Well German law is that tint on the rear windows is allowed (b-pillar backwards) and you must have an ABE certification for the tint. No need to drive to the TÜV and get it approved there. Nonetheless, I have seen a lot of US cars with full tint around the heidelberg/mannheim base. But they had a special numberplate, no ordinary German one.

Tinted foils on the rear windows of a car or van are not a problem, either. “Many German companies that apply these foils believe that the tinting of front windows is legal for USAREUR-plated vehicles,” Mr. Saavedra explained. “So they will gladly perform this service for Americans, although they would never do it for German vehicles.”

Window tint isn't legal for the front side windows in Germany....period. Some cars are shipped over here that way and slip through the usaeur/usafe inspection....if so you can get away with it until you get a fix it ticket from the Polizei...they'll give you like a day to remove it... Some US inspectors in Germany will fail your initial inspection ...others will let you slip through. YES , you will see a lot of US registered cars with front tint in Germany......just slipped through, and good until you get caught.
