I want to see how your windows look with tint. Please specify what percentage you have when you post a pic. Thanks!

I have, but I'm not sure what percentage it is. I simply asked the tint shop to match the tint on the back windows as close as possible.
I also put a clear tint on the rest of the windows to block out the UV light. My understanding is the factory tint does not do this.

Same as ELUSIVE, I just asked them to match the rear with SunTek CXP film ... it's my old Yukon but hopefully it helps a little:



About to do the same to the Esky.

Thank you guys! This is very helpful. I have an appointment to get mine tinted tomorrow. I think I want the front to match the back as well. I was just concerned because my interior is so dark and if you look at the vehicle from the front you can't see in it. The previous owner put a very dark reflective tint on my rear window making for a very obstructed rear view. I will post pics after the job is done on Saturday.

It is very hard to "match" the front to the backs, since the windshield brings in a lot of light, making the front windows appear to be lighter than the rears. 20% is pretty close, maybe 15% would be a 'perfect' match. Good luck.

You are correct, you would need to close the sunroof shade and cover the from windshield with brown paper if you use the same % tint as the rear windows to match, you have to go slightly darker like you said for really close match.

This is 40% on the windshield and 15% on the fronts. There rears are done over the factory glass but I'm not sure the opacity on those so they're darker than stock. I too have a reflective rear window that is very annoying and will be replaced once I get around to it.

Don't think I have any good pics handy but I have 18% on my fronts. Matched the rears well before putting 25% on them. Toying with going back and getting the 18% removed and putting 5% on the fronts. I have 45CXP Suntek on the windshield (actually has 40% vlt).

Dam dirty, did you put that reflective tint on the rear or did come that way? I'm curious because I don't get why someone would not want to see behind them..

Murphy, your ride looks good. The tint looks clean and professional. I can tell that it is dark but appears that your interior helps lighten it up a bit..
