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.

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

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..

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.
