Unless the previous owner was constantly stoned, purple tint is the remains of regular tint. It becomes faded and turns purple...

Tint also turns purple if it's cleaned with amonia or an amonia-based cleaner.

Good luck cleaning up that tint junk! The easiest way I've found to remove it is to spray the tint with ammonia/water then cover the inside of the glass with black garbage bags, let it sit in the sun for an afternoon (or use a heat gun if the weather won't comply) and then attack it with a plastic scraper, That OEM stuff is a mother! The crap they put on your car at a tint shop (I used to work at one) is much easier to get off http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/wink.gif
