Default Factory Front tint?

Is it possible to have the front windows tinted the same as the rear from the factory when doing a custom build? Figured not only would it be more exact to the rear tint color, but would be better than applying films to the windows.

Thanks.

Just pay $135 or so to get high quality ceramic tint done on the windows consistent with the laws of your state. They won't be as dark as the rears, but they will lessen the contrast and make the car look less odd. The rear window tint level would be illegal in the vast majority of states of not all of them if applied to the fronts. Why do you think Audi have an option that puts a car an in illegal configuration?

Thanks for the info. I'm in Illinois and I think it's only 50% on the fronts. It's 35% on cars for some reason. So if what people say is true, will be 30% less than the rears. Guess it can't look any more weird than no tint at all.

Does the front sides have any tint at all? I noticed on my Infiniti there seems to be some kind of tint on the front. Not sure what but doesn't seem totally clear.

EDIT: By the way, if you go for a Stratos tint I am guessing it will be much more than $135 no?

I got some of the best ceramic tint available at that price. Admittedly, it was an add on to a $3,750 EXPEL film and Kamikaze ceramic coating on the entire car. Remember, tint jobs are heavily labor and the front windows are super easy to do. If the front windows have any tint it's very little. Just get what's legal at the price point and product you want and you're good to go.
