    I'm not sure what kind of tint the shop used. I am amazed at the quality of this guy's work. The tint goes all the way to where the glass begins to roll on the edges. He has tinted a few cars for family members.

    It is a 2012. I don't think it could look any better. I'm not interested in windshield tint.

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but OP how close do those two tints match? Are the fronts still lighter than the rears? I currently have 40% in the rear on top of the privacy glass and 35% on the fronts but I'm considering replacing them due to the scratches on the tint on the passenger side.

    They are just about a perfect match. I'm really happy with it. I think it more depends on what kind of tint and color your shop will use. Hopefully, the front or back won't be more reflective than the other.
