not necessarily, it must let a certain amount of light in and in some cars they come tinted as much as they can be as standard

nope..its GOT to let 70% of light in on side windows and 75% on main windscreen...and even "crap" cars have slightly tinted windows these days...so "any" film on it isnt a good idea
moreover if you have an crash at night/hours of darkness insurance companies generally WONT pay out...if you have tints...
added to which police dont like them as it makes it hard for them to see you...esp when they are on "blues and twos" and see that you have acknowldeged that they are coming through a red light for example

clear as mud???

you will find that all most all cars come as standard with tinted windows...because the glass they make windows from is recycled..and therefore tinted due to the impurities. That added to the laminate means that it may appear "proper clear" but actaully isnt as good as you think...have a look at the etching on the bottom corner and it will usually tell you what % of light transmission is on it...

The legal limit of the fronts is 30% tint and most cars come with at least a 5% tint as standard. Even a 30% tint is not really noticable. I have 50% alround and have never had any problems with the rozzers.

so just to get this straight, you're allowed tints on the back window and both back side windows as long as they allow 70% of the light through?
