Re: Tinted Windows (ARAlmeida)

Volvo's website doesn't list anything but that doesn't mean they don't have them. Did you ask your dealer?<p>I don't know in Portugal, but the laminated rear windows on my XC90 were available in only one form: not tinted. At my request, the dealer installed some tinting film. After three years of use, there is not a single scratch or bubble anywhere. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>If you can't get OEM tinted laminated windows, tint them like I did.

Re: Tinted Windows (ig_mb)

I ask my dealer and both (Me and the Dealer Employee) se on Vida, and there are any PN with the description that whe want.<p>For the XC90 i see some cars with tinted windows at rear, but i don't know if the windows are laminated or not.<p>The film here in Portugal are not legal. The ticket will be 50 EUR but like i know the police don't give us the ticket if all the rest of car is on Standard conditions.<p>I'm trying to do everything legal, but i think that i will put that film, beceuse we have lot's of sun and when the car is outside at the middle day the temperature increase very very much inside of the car.<p>Thans for your answer.

why so dark? why not go for 35% or 20% at the most? it gives it a classier look. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>
