Dark Tinted Window Visors

What's the legality of dark tinted window visors on the front driver and passenger windows? The windows aren't allowed to be tinted at all, so just want to make sure it's legal to have the visors be tinted instead.

Thanks

If you are talking about the windshield, you can have up to 75mm of tint at the top. If you have a swing down visor then there are no rrestrictions about that. No tint may be legally added to the side windows.

Thank you for your reponse. I'm referring to the window deflector visors actually, the ones which block out rain from going into the interior when you crack the windows open a little.

the tint is not applied to the window, so therefore legal.

They are not illegal unless they block your vision out of the windows, unlikely when they are mounted to the top of the door.

I've seen a lot of factory deflectors like that that were opaque colors to match the car, so... yeah.
