Rear windows tinting percentage?

As you know, our Stelvios come standard with windows tinting for the rear windows. Anyone knows what's the percentage number?

I'm thinking to have the front door windows tinted as well.

I estimate it to be about a 20% on my Stelvio and had the front doors done with 35%

Like CalgaryStelvio said, I think the rears are around 20ish percent. I had 20% applied to all my windows (excluding windshield) and that put the rears down to around 5%.

The new ceramic window tints on the market block %50 or more and best of all they are transparent. They can be used on the front windshield and because they are ceramic they will not interfere with antenna reception. They are also a great choice for the sunroof, especially in hot climates. I think 3M makes them but LLUMAR is probably the best.

All my tint is 20% Phantom S9 by Rayno which is a carbon ceramic film. It makes a world of difference on blocking the heat from the sun during the day. I chose not to do the windshield at a higher percent that would be transparent though because when I go on longer road trips my favorite pair of sunglasses are polarized and with ceramic tint you can see a rainbow effect which I felt would be distracting. I might still go back and do it at a later date though.
