Think it's something like 75-80% maybe higher.

I had a look at my loan LE and on the front (standard tint windows) it says in the etching "transparency 70% min" which I believe means they let at least 70% light through (legal limit) so they are 30% tinted and the rear (extra tinted windows) say 40% Max, so I'm guessing this means they've got a 60% tint, ie double the standard tint (all car glass is tinted to some extent, its not just plain glass, mainly to stop the car feeling like a sweatbox on sunny/hot days and to stop the sun blinding you, half open your front window and look through the open part then look through the glass and you'll see its tinted a lot more than you think or a lot more than is obvious to the naked eye when closed.)
