    I have searched and searched... Either it doesn't exists or someone doesn't want me to find it. What percentage tint is on the driver and passenger side doors? From what I can find, the Fwds are 90%, but I want the front doors. Any help would be amazing.

    The front windows are not factory tinted.

    Side doors seem none.

    I believe the sides on the FWD and the rear hatch are 10% meaning they let in 10% of light.

    Prior to having my windows tinted, we used a meter on the driver side window and saw 90%, implying a 10% light reduction. I can't say/don't know if that means it was specifically a tint or just a slight reduction due to the glass, but the fancy meter showed the equivalent of a 10% reduction.

    We didn't measure the passenger side but I think it's reasonable to assume they are the same.

    I concur that FWD & hatch are only 10% light transmission from Tesla.
