Sport Original Window Tint

Does anyone know what the factory tint is on the Sport trim, if any? I'm looking into getting my windows tinted the day after my Impreza gets delivered and I want to keep it within Texas legal limit.

25% (oddly enough), so that means getting 30% tint.

Do manufacturer's typically roll out their vehicles with tint on them already? 0_o

Yup, but they have to made to allow at least 70% of light through. The glass is essentially dyed on the inside. I think Jeep used to if not still does that.

Yeah no tint unfortunately. I wish Subaru at least would have had the rear windows tinted but it's relatively cheap these days to get tint done anyways.

the Impreza is considered a "car/sedan" to the DMV so they are not allowed to come from the factory with privacy glass like the CrossTrek, Forester and Outbacks. Those are considered "SUV" to the DMV and have separate tint laws. in NC the rear of an "SUV, Truck or Van" can be tinted as dark as you want while the front doors have to be 32% or lighter. So that means we have to use around a 45% tint to get it to be legal on the front. but of course not many people around here do "legal" tint...

That's good to know. Here in MA it's 35% & if you don't adhere to the "law" they'll give you a nice red "R" rejection/inspection sticker lol.
