I did 20% 3M tint on the front windows. They are probably a tiny bit lighter than the rear windows, but the match is pretty darn close.

I have never heard of tint screwing up any cell/gps/sensor etc.

This may be true for you, but not in general. I use both a GPS device and a satellite radio device that sit in the car / mount to dash. Neither has an external antenna.

I do agree performance of these devices or cell phones is unlikely to be affected by window tints, and has never happened to me. But it has happened to some, and some manufactures put the warning on their products if they contain metallics.

I just had my wife's car tinted and opted against a particular tint that carried that warning. Unlikely? .....sure. Was I going to take a chance? I decided not to.

I do believe that was what the op was inquiring about.

I did 20% on the front windows. My tint guy metered the door window in the back at 21% from the factory. The fronts look a little bit lighter do to the sun coming in the windshield. No issues on my express at all.

Just had mine done with 20% tint. No issues, the antenna's are all mounted outside the vehicle. My '08 Charger needed carbon tint as there was antenna interference, not so with the RAM.

Fair enough.

Good points.
