Default Window Tint

What is the factory tint on a XB 2012 my air doesn't seem to be doing a great job and thinking about adding 20 on the read pass doors and 35 on the front door glass. Any thoughts or ideas and I had the air checked and they say it's ok just had some moisture in it. Thanks in advance

my air isn't super good either... I suspect partly the large area windscreen area it's cooling, not sure.

I think someone said 35%, which is the legal limit in a lot of states, would make the fronts match the rears.

Window tint Update I went to 2 tint shops and they stated the 2 rear door glass and the rear deck glass is just 20% dark glass with NO reflective tint and the front sides are 70 colored glass.

I got a guy off Craigslist list that came to the house and did a excellent job with MaXPro Window Film. Rear 3 windows 20% and Front side 35% MMMMMood We be coooool

I might do the guy-off-of-craigslist tint thing too, that actually sounds like a decent service. Did he nail it?

I like to look up reviews and even find them on Facebook. If I make it clear that I'm posting their work and tagging it on facebook, they usually do a really good job.

Good for you, well I just got mine tinted and the shop had offered me a lifetime warranty for the window tint. They did a pretty good job for a very reasonable cost.
