Tinted Windows on Cars

Post by Robert Barratt » Wed Mar 08, 2017 9:13 am

Can anyone explain to me why some people choose to have the rear passenger windows of their private cars (not limos or diplomatic cars) tinted? Is there some kind of tax advantage?

Have wondered this too - there is tinted and there is tinted... Some people claim that tinting helps keep the temperature down (useful when it is hot in summer) or that with sleeping babies/children having the back of the car darker is useful.

E.g. https://forum.geizhals.at/t880828,7677483.html

Others cite privacy (although that'd be more likely in limos etc.)

As far as I can make out tinting is only allowed for the back windows of a car (ie. not driver/passenger seat windows)
Vienna is like an Ikea sofa - you know you should upgrade, but why bother when it is this comfortable.

It always seems to be the same kind of cars. Bigger Audis, Mercedes and BMWs. And driven by people that seem they are just going to rob a bank.

They do attract a certain degree of machismo - and a Hauch of pumping bass.
