I just wanted to post this info I got from Toyota in case anyone is wondering how dark the factory privacy glass is that comes with the 2019 Rav4.

I had my front two windows tinted with LLumar film. From the outside they match perfectly. However, on the inside they are much greener than the back. Anyone else notice a big difference on the inside?

Got my hybrid limited tinted this week. Went with XPEL Prime XR ceramic tint, 35% fronts and 70% rear and back. Originally, I was thinking of doing 20% in the fronts so that it closely matches the shade of the privacy glass. However, since the legal limit is 35%, I decided to stick with 35% for the front so I don't get any problems. I had 35% done in my old car so I was comfortable with how it looks. I didn't really want the windows to be that much darker than the privacy glass, which is the reason to only go with 70% for the back just for the UV protection.

Looks great! I was thinking of doing 35% in the fronts also. Thanks for sharing.

I have Llumar ceramic on my two cars and I don't notice that.

What % did you go with so that the front and rear matched?

2013 Ford Fusion Titanium
2011 Hyundai Sonata Ltd (to be replaced)

No problem. The first photo looks a bit deceiving because the sun was shining directly on the car from the angle where I took the photo. So the front windows came out darker than what it looked in real life. The second photo from the opposite angle gives a better indication.
