      For those of you that have not seen this, some years ago, Paneuropean, our (sadly, former) esteemed moderator posted a nice discussion on tinting windows on the Phaeton.

      In the US, there are laws that speak to how much window tinting is allowed. These vary by state. In PA, for example, 70% light transmission is mandatory.

      I take perverse pleasure in the "in your face" statement that this makes to luxo-mark snobs. :P
