It's not tint. It's smoked glass. Tint it however you like, but it'll never be lighter than what it is unless you replace the window (and clear glass is available).

So, you're fine. Go nuts.

For the sake of future confusion, let's not refer to the factory windows being tinted - they're not tinted. Window tint is removable, the smoked glass used in OEM "privacy glass" is not something that can be changed outside of glass replacement.
