    Window Tint, After Market?

    Does anyone have recommendation for aftermarket window tint that looks like OEM factory tinting? Want best quality available and avoid it looking obviously after market.

    Llumar AirBlue 80. Looks like just the early 2000's Mercedes with the factory blue-ish looking windows. All the benefits of a tint with none of the hassle from law enforcement. It's what I have:

    A couple of images for reference. Second shot has windows down in front so you can compare.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    The "factory look" is achieved by a competent tint professional. I thought the factory glass only cut transmission by 10-15%.

    OHIO TINT LAWS
    The percent of visible light allowed through your car windows is called VLT: Visible Light Transmission. The percentage of light allowed through your film and glass in Ohio is very specific and different for sedan cars and SUV cars or vans.

    TINT DARKNESS FOR SEDANS:
    Windshield: Non-reflective tint is allowed on the top 5 inches of the windshield.
    Front Side windows: Must allow more than 50% of light in.
    Back Side windows: Any darkness can be used.
    Rear Window: Any darkness can be used.
