    Did you tint your front 2 windows and what percent tint did you go with?

    Hello every1!

    I wanted to post a poll to help me decide about window tint on my future 2013 Soul.

    Can't decide which way to go and hope current owners can help. I'm thinking I want to add tint to rear factory and go legal 35% in front myself.


    thanks and I'm glad I found the forums

    You shouldn't have put tint percentage on your poll as their is different legal rates in states/provinces. Some you are not allowed to put any tint on them.

    I got the front tint at 32% which is the legal limit here in Ontario. The factory OEM deep tint privacy glass (standard on all Canadian models) on the rear side windows and rear hatch is 20%, so obviously no reason to do them.

    I did mine, and they're within Texas Law at 25%.

    I did mine, law in South Dakota I believe is 35% (could be wrong, never really payed attention).I did my front windows at 25%, thinking about doing a brow on my windshield. My back windows, as I'm sure you're aware, were already tinted. I matched my front windows to them.

    Did my front windows at 20% to match factory tint as close as possible. I think it was money well spent. Makes the soul look better (IMO) and actually does help on sunny days.

    50% is the legal limit in Ohio but I have a medical exemption.

    20% is a near-perfect match...looks uniform on the outside but different shades on the inside.

    Pic was taken for the SoulHamsters "Picture Game" thread a few weeks ago...the challenge was a pic of your Soul next to a school bus.

    Tint on front windows in DE is not legal (boo, Delaware!) so I'm not going to tint any of them except for the windshield "brow" area? It's too bright for me without one. Still working on finding who to buy it from.
