Do I need to remove window tints from my PCP car before I return it?

I had the windows tinted on my PCP car, which is due back this year. Will the tints needs to be removed before returning the car to the dealer?

It'll depend on the terms and conditions of your PCP agreement. Technically, it's likely that you shouldn't have tinted the windows without getting permission from the finance provider first, and they could penalise you for it when the car's returned. That said, if they've been done to a legal and professional standard, we'd be very surprised if they picked up on it as an issue.
