Double-check your paperwork to make sure you weren't charged for it.

I bought my '13 from Sewell and it is almost a necessity to have tint down here in Texas. I would say 95% of brand new cars have it. Mine was supposed to be tinted as part of "special promotion" package at no charge from the dealership. But I told them not to as I already had a tint guy who would do any percentage I wanted.

Mine didn't come with it from the factory or port.

Yeah Sewell didn't charge me for that, I made my appointment for the front windows tint this Wednesday and clear bra, now save me like $100 on the tint

I think it installed at port? On the driver side has small template logo from the film, but this tint look like 50% to me?

Not installed at the port. I believe all dealers, or at least a good majority, sub-contract tint professionals. That's what my tint guy told me he does. Plus, I had the option to turn down the tint to which I did. The car was at the dealership so no way it's done at the port.

I had mine tinted after I took delivery. It actually needs to go back to get the driver's door redone as it peeled at the bottom.

those of you with front tint, is it not more difficult to see at night and when raining outside window?
i had minimal tint on windows on a car and it was hard to see at night and with rain.

I have no problem with 30% ceramic on my IS, no fog up neither, when i got my windows tint i compare the dark between ceramic and regular film, i noticed the 30% ceramic is about 40% dark of the regular film, i love my 30% all the around on my car, it is not too dark i can see through, and i can see clear at night or in the rain

I have no problem with it either, I have had the windows tinted on all of my vehicles since 1998 and I find it too bright when I drive a different car without tint.

Mine was tinted at the dealers after the sale (free)
I haven't noticed any problem seeing at night if anything it's better

no tint on mine, but if I wanted to tint front windows, what is % of light that is passing thru rear windows? 50%?

20% is a close match to the rear windows.
