Default Window Tint

Iím looking to get my Magnetic 2018 XLT Sport tinted. Anyone got and pictures of theirs with tint and what percentage they are tinted? Trying to decide how dark to go.

I went with 35% because that is the legal limit in this state. It's a little lighter than the stock tint on the rear windows, but looks better than no tint on the fronts. I also have a 5% brow on the windshield.

I have 20% on the front windows as it matches the factory tint on the back. Still allows good night time visibility and shade/privacy during the day. I do regret not getting a brow as mentioned above because the factory has little to no tinting at the top of the windshield. Iíd highly recommend that if you are ok with how they look.

Back windows are tinted from the factory at 16% if that helps any.

I think it really depends on you and what state you live. If you want it to look even do 20% on the sides, but if you live in a state where cops are a P.I.T.A. about tint stay legal. I went 20 on the front sides, 20 on the back window over the factory tint, 55 over the whole windshield, and 5 on the top strip. The 55 on the windshield is illegal, but does greatly reduce headlight glare at night. But, that's just me.

Kept it legal for WA, very happy w performance. Xpel prime XR which is a ceramic product, great for reducing heat from sunlight. 35% front, 55% rear 3 windows over privacy glass.

Magnetic sport, great pick OP!

I did a 25% tint on the front windows. Itís close to matching the rear but certainly not blacked out.
