Re: Got Fronts tinted to match!

My WK2 is the same color, I've been debating whether or not to tint my windows. I've always tinted, but I've been hesitant as to now because I sorta want to be seen driving, but I think ima just go get it tinted.

Re: Got Fronts tinted to match!

Did you get an eyebrow along the top of the windshield? If so, put up a photo.

Re: Got Fronts tinted to match!

Looks really good. I'm debating on what to do. I also have Stone White and can't decide if I want to do just the fronts 20% or all windows. Obviously that will make the rears much darker. But my rears right now don't look like they are at 20%. I guess it's an illusion without tint on the fronts.

Your pic is really pushing me to do just the fronts, though. Thanks for the pic.

I did notice from the inside the fronts look slightly darker.. And I hear the factory tint doesnt have UV protection... I should get the rears done for my kids sake.. But for now I just wanted the matched look.. And if the rears are tinted then they wont match.. I'm glad I could be of assistance... I have never had any of my cars tinted before so I do worry about being hassled in PA..but I see everyone and their brother with tinted windows so I went for it

Hmm they said 20.. Oh well.. It matches. I see on their website there is no 20 so they must round up to an even # when telling customers who knows..

Re: Got Fronts tinted to match!

Your window might be 2% so you may have 20 total. I believe all the windows without tint still have 2%. Haven't actually tested with a meter though.

2% is darker than limo tint.

The factory front windows have a UV coating that tints them to about 75% light transmittal.


Remember, the lower the percentage, the less light transmittal.
