Front Door Window Tint

Has anybody tinted the windows on the front doors? Curious to see how the different shades look. I would like to match the back windows, but I'm afraid that will be too dark to see out. Thanks for sharing.

I have. I have the black pack which has the privacy windows in the rear. to match that I would recommend a 15% tint as I went with 30% to be conservative and now regret that it's not dark enough. btw, tinting front windows are illegal but I'm sure you already know that.

I just tinted my front two windows to match the rear privacy glass. The problem you're going to face is not the darkness of the tint to match the rear. That's the easy part. The problem is actually matching the tint color hue. The rear privacy glass has a slight brown hue to it...most if not all automotive tint has a slight green hue. When it's dark or you're just looking at the car, you most likely won't notice the difference. But when you're looking out from the inside is when you notice it the most. I was going to settle on keeping it but decided to remove it. If only the tint matched 100% in terms of color hue and darkness...that would be perfect. It looks so much better tinted IMO.

The installer told me it was comparable to 30% since the OEM clear window is slightly tinted (it's not completely clear). And I don't think it was ceramic either...i'm not sure.

So what colors can't you see since you're color blind? Tinted windows looks so much better...it is weird how it turns heads and get stares driving by some people. It's completely stock too. Haha.

I can see color but I just can't tell differences in certain colors. certain green, red, brown, blue, purple are very confusing to me.

yea the DS is special, I have only seen 3 of them since I bought mine in April 2015.

Funny, in California, tinting the front windows is a no no but everyone does it anyways...

Thanks for the input, all. I'm looking at ceramic tint, just trying to decide between the 15% and 30%. Any chance you tinters can post a couple pics and note the %tint you have, please? Thanks again!

I have ceramic tint 30% on the front passages and 60% on the windshield. I wish I had done 15% and 30% to match the rear windows on my black pack.
