So I am planning on getting the front two windows tinted on the xc90 just as soon as I have the time to take it to the local shop. Anyone out there have any pics with this done where I can compare tint percentages? I am thinking that if I tell him to match the factory tint on the back windows it may be a bit too dark, although my Acura has 20% all around and I have had very few problems with the law (knock on wood!) over the past few years.

Re: window tint pics? (k24atuner)

Hi, I don't have pics to show you yet, but I took mine right after I picked it up over a month ago to a local shop: factory tint read only as 20% (and not 15% as you would think) which was good news as i also wanted to match the factory look. So I did go with 20% in the front windows and looks great. I would say go for it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>PS: I also have 20% all aorund on my A4 avant.

With the back windows being dark, it appears darker than it actually is.

Thanks, guys. I believe my front tint is 25% as that is the minimum percentage for light transmittance for front/side windows here in TX.
