Just checking, I plan to take mine in next week for full front PPF and tint, did the same with my M3 last year. Tinted the rear on the M3 though - I wonder if the MY tint is darker.
Wrapped my Y; windshield 70%, front windows 35%, back side windows 25% as well as rear windows and sunroof! Even have a cool tint on headlights!

I forgot to mention, the Model 3 has sun shade covering the top & the back. So even with the sun shade it’s a whooping 123F. Once the Air is going at a #7 fan speed, it cools down quickly.

The car also shows the internal temp from the app which is probably the most consistent measuring device as it’s used to regulate the internal temps. Just turn off the over heat protection.

And yes, factory glass is dyed and lacks actual heat rejection. It’s a good idea to do a light tint that still has heat rejection properties. I did 15 on the fronts, 50 on the back/hatch and then 70 on the windshield.
The factory glass is dyed and not tinted with a film. I did mine with Llumar IRX 50 in the back and 15 in the front. They seem to match very closely.

Are the front windows darker or the back windows darker?
