Does anyone’s windows not match color after getting the same tint all the way around?

    I just had 15% Ceramic put on all windows except windshield on my ‘18 advanced and The front 2 windows and back hatch look great with a nice gray look but the small windows in front and both windows on the back doors have a yellow/bronze haze to them. That is only looking out of the car but it is annoyingly obvious. I’m about to take it back and have them strip it all off unless this is something in the windows. I didn’t see a hint of difference in the windows before it was tinted. Has anyone noticed this and it’s normal or did they switch tint on me after the front 2 main windows? Hopefully pics upload to see the different colors. The top shades on one pic and a white poster board outside on another pic.

    The original OEM window tint is different between the quarter windows (front and rear) and the main side windows (front and rear). The quarter windows are darker tinted from the factory than the regular side windows.

    I suspect that might account for the difference. I'll double check front/rear side windows for differences next time I head to the garage but the quarter windows are different.

    Thanks for checking! That would mean my back main windows are the same as the small quarter windows. Really drives me crazy to see that big of a difference from the inside tho.

    Welp, I don’t want to ruin anyone but don’t compare your 2 door windows! Factory “yellow” on the back ruined this tint job for me. I finally rolled my windows down at the tint shop sincere been 5 days only to see at the top of the window how yellow/green it is. This really sucks from looking out, a nice gray window out the front to a yellow/gray window out the back.

    Hello what do people tint the little rear hatch glass. I have put 20 xpel tint all the way around and the shop did not tint the little back glass. And it looks from the inside not good to me image-2020-10-02-12:42:14-417.jpg
