Rear privacy glass tint on rear windows according to the spec sheets is only available on the FR/FR sport. But looking at photos on here and online it seems a bit hit and miss as to who has them?
I'm due to pick up an Xcellence lux shortly end of month and did get a quote just in case from a local specialist of £150 with life time warranty! Which I thought was very reasonable. Just want to check first as dealer hasnt taken much notice of this on cars going out so couldn't be sure.
Anyone with an Xcellence lux go them! Thanks.

They look as if it has a tint to glass.
can parking the rear door glass, but would need to get the Tinting firm to test the front windows as It may not be possible to go any darker.
as the front screen has to let in minimum 75% light, and the front door 70%.
Your can have a darker sun strip at the top of the windscreen.
Not sure what that can be but the specialist should know all of this.

Think i will get mine darkened at the back when i get it, and maybe a sun strip on the windscreen.
if I can darken the fronts legally then I would get it done.

I have a car that's got tints in the rear, and there quite dark. If you haven't got rear beepers or camera, once it starts getting dark and your trying to reverse, it really restrict your rear view, but if you have a rear camera, go for tints, Cannot remember the last time me and the Mrs got in the back for a bit of privacy?

Have a look at the Rare Orange Thread
2 members have posted pictures.
First is an FR Sport and the Second is Excellence LUX.
FR Sport has the darkened Glass the LUX DOES NOT.
and it does make a visual difference.

If i EVER get mine( MID JUNE NOW, Pushed back 4 weeks) I am going to get the windows tinted.
If the fronts can be a little darker Legally that I will do it.
ALSO look at having a darkened sun strip on the front screen, BUT I do stress I will consult with the Professional fitters prior to these extras so its still Legal.

Front side windows will already be tinted to the maximum that is legally allowed. Any additional tint will take it over the legal threshold which is a minimum of 75% light transmission.
