After I tinted my rear window (35%) I can't see anything but headlights through the rear view mirror while driving at night. Seems like the Honda mirror is lightly tinted already (?), so seeing through 2 layers of tint is difficult.

I'd like to get more visibility and I'm looking into either a new mirror to clip on top of the existing one ($10+), or just a glass swap.

Anyone in similar situation? What did you end up doing?

I have 20% on my back window and I can see just fine. No issues here.

Turns out my rear window was covered in dirt and mud. Wiped down my car and I can see fine now.
