Getting my new C7 windows tinted, 35% on side windows and limo tint on quarter windows, you can't see out of those anyway. I chose to not do the rear window for now on the advice of the tint guy (who is a fellow Corvette owner and possibly to please my wife) He said rear visibility is already a concern in the coupe. He also offered to spray tint all markers and the taillights. He did it to his and said it looks great. I think i like the blackout idea on a Black car. It is removable it I don't like it. He also said it has minimal effect on the brightness of the taillights. Opinions? Also getting Ceramic coating done. Friend of mine has a special on at 800.00. Normally 1000.00.

Yes it has the camera and i really don't know how much you see out of the rear window due to the steep angle anyway. i haven't been in a C7 coupe yet. Wife prefers untinted but the jury is still out😎

Dan definitely get the back window limo tinted. Mine is and I can see through it fine night or day. My rear quarter windows also limo tinted. The driver and passenger windows were 35% till MITM and it looked very good on the black car.
Yes good plan on the marker lights. They stick out horribly on the black cars. I tried the tinted option and then decided to go this way with the Oracle lights.

I have 35% on all windows - wouldn't do it any other way. Think it would look very weird with the rear window not tinted...I have never noticed a visibility issue (not really sure what you're looking for back there except headlights?)

Not a fan of tinted tails personally.

I'm confused about that Jake, looks like it's floating in air. What am I looking at?
That Jake is etched into my illuminated wind restrictor inside the car. Yes from the back through the limo tinted glass it looks like it’s hanging in the air. You got it exactly right 👍

I have 35% on my side windows and limo tint on both the quarters and the rear. No problem seeing the rea rview and I also have a dash cam looking mounted on and looking out my rear window which works just fine. I agree... tint them all. Also have my side and rear markers tinted but not the tails. That would just attract more unwanted attention from the loco police... errrrr...local police...
