Take your car to a place where they perform inspections and ask them if they can use their Tint meter to check your tint.

My stock windows seemed pretty dark too. I think its just the fact of the angle that pic was taken and thath the celi has a dark interior.

Check for your VIN on the window. My girlfriend was going to get a Celica (she got an Eclipse instead), but the windows were tinted on the Celica and we asked if it was aftermarket and the sales guy told us that the factory tinted windows come with the VIN in the tint.

I have aftermarket tint, and my VIN is still on the windows, it's all about if you keep the stock glass from when you buy the car, or if you've broken windows and replaced them and tinted the car. one way you can tell if it is aftermarket tint is look on the small windows in the back, if you can see the black paint ring and the tint, it's after market, stock tint windows in the rear don't have that outline, cus it's an actual piece of tinted glass
