Dropped her off at Brian's for front wheel bearings/pads. Noticed most of the others there have far darker rear tints than mine does. Thought mine were pretty dark too!
I have really dark tinted Windows on my vehicle.

When I went over to France last month , they caused problems at the security / passport control centres on both sides of the channel.
My vehicle got pulled for security checks, a staggering four times !

Once in Portsmouth going out .
Once in cherbourg on arrival and exactly the same on the return journey .

On asking the very polite inspectors / security team at portmouth , why my van was targeted, he said it is because of the heavy window tints . All occupants were checked with their relevant passport pictures etc.
All holdals / luggage was unloaded and x- rayed and complete vehicle checked fully over going out from Portsmouth.

I have to say , i am not complaining about this . All staff were very professional and courteous indeed . I had a right laugh with some of them too ! Especially with the size of my first aid medical response bag I had with me . (They have never seen so many scissors of different sizes and seat belt cutters etc in one bag before !)

The passport control and security teams do a great job indeed .
After all , i could of had anyone in the back .

So , to conclude, if you have heavy tinted Windows and due to be using a port to travel abroad , prepare to be stopped .

Gave mine a good hoovering out and cleaned the carpets this morning.Whilst thumbing through the Japanese manuals in the glove
Box I found a small red bag with two little Rider stickers in it.Wondering what they may be for?
i think the red bag denotes , that somewhere in your van is a hidden Japanese porn stash πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
