Windows tinted

What a difference. The color really pops now.

Privacy glass is standard on all trims on rear side windows and liftgate.

The back windows are darker then the front from the factory but we tinted all so they’re very dark now. We did a 20% tiny all around. Very hard to see in all the back windows from outside and the two fronts are dark but not as much as the others. Keeps it much cooler in the summer too.

Very nice! I can't decide if I want to tint dark enough to match the rears, or stick with something a little lighter to avoid harassment from the local police. The limit here is 35%, so in order to stay legal, the darkest I could go would be 40%.

I just had mine done to match the rears. I don't know what the factory tint is, but they only added 15-17% to it. (I didn't ask which they settled on).

I'm just going to ask my tint shop what they recommend. I imagine it'd be between 20-30% to match the rears. I won't go any darker than that as I enjoy being able to see out of my windows at night.

You may want to consider tinting all around even if you don't need the rear tinted darker. From what I understand the rear is "privacy glass" so its not really tint so it doesn't have any tint advantages (glare, heat reduction, etc.). Even if you don't need it any darker, you might want to tint clear at least for heat and glare reduction on the rear. Privacy Glass from what I understand is merely colored glass.
