Tint color to offset Mercedes blue factory tint?

I had the two front windows on my ML350 tinted this weekend. I went with a standard gray 50% film. Unfortunately, the front windows don't match the rear privacy glass I have on my car because of the blue factory tint that Mercedes puts on its windows. Does anyone have any experience with tinting their windows with a different color tint (other than standard grey) that can offset the blue? If I went darker, would the blue still be evident?

Your factory tint should be green not blue. I have not heard of a way to offset this, besides replacing the front glass with non tinted glass then tinting.

Green in the Classic version only while Avantgarde or Elegance come with blue tint in the E class model, I don't know about other cars.
