Window tinting %?

I was wondering if anyone would know what % is the oem window tint on the WK2(the back windows of course)?

I want to have the front windows and windshield tinted the same %.

Thanks

Re: Window tinting %?

its exactly 18%.

most places xcarry 15 and 20. obviously one is a bbit darker and other lighter. I went with the 15 for the front doors since the windshield lets some light in.

Re: Window tinting %?

i believe it was Solar Gard brand that they used. When looking out it looks darker but when outside looking in its exactly the same as the back windows

Thanks for the info boys. I can no longer stand having the front windows and windshield untinted.

Just FYI the rear privacy glass is not tinted, but dyed glass.

Re: Window tinting %?

Anyone tint the windshield? Hows it when driving at night? Do the auto high beams and wipers still work?

I totally forgot about the auto headlights! I wonder if tinting the windshield with 15% tint will have the headlights on all the time. Damn...

Re: Window tinting %?

I had the the 3M crystalline 70 applied and night driving is absolutely no problem, reduces daytime glare and it does not affect the headlight functions. It is a great mod for a hot climate and helps to protect the dash. Nearly invisible, no one has noticed it is tinted. Glad I had it done.

The 15% tint however, would be noticeable for sure and may have a different outcome on the headlights and your ticket record. Although in Phoenix, I have seen several 15% tint jobs done on Chrysler 300's.
