    OEM Tints, how dark?

    Me again!

    Just seen that you can specify cars with Factory tints on the rear of the car, just wondering how dark these actually are, I like the look of light tints. Ive never liked driving a car with dark tints as i like light in the car, but i think an avant will look ok with a light tint, obviously im not going to pay audi prices for the tint and will get it done myself when i get the car!

    But basically, what grade is the factory tint?

    normally the factory rears are .5% (limo black) think the rears only looks tacky, rather have 20% all round

    I've got the factory tints but if I didn't have and I was looking at retro fitting then that's what I'd do....althought I do have the factory sun shades too !
