Just curious what's the benifit to have these on your car?<p>My last R had them, the door glass was thick, and you could tell there were 2 windows sandwiched together, my current R doesn't have them.

Re: What's with the laminated side windows? (firehawk618)

Does tinting the laminating glass help or hurt or no effect?

Just to add, and at least this was for '06, they were there as part of the Convenience Package. Got the laminated windows, reverse sensor, sunglass holder, and grocery bag holder in the trunk all together.

Re: (firehawk618)

The sunglass holder is way cool - it replaces the driver's side grab handle. Hinges down and is pretty much hidden from view. My Oakley Flak Jacket's fit perfectly in there.<p>Here's the details on it:<p><A HREF="http://vccs.volvocars.se/accessories/feb_release/vccsMawebTransform.asp?type=html&uid=05af5ab8-b0e4-42e9-8257-2e32c850d4df&culturecode=en-GB" TARGET="_blank">http://vccs.volvocars.se/acces...en-GB</A><p>

Then again I haven't seen many '07 V70R/S60R's.

Re: (firehawk618)

Just FYI , not all sunglasses will fit in this holder. Mine don't. The holder is not fully closed when I put them in.<br> I would say you can keep your readers there while you drive the car..<p>My car also has convenience package, and I have everything listed except... laminated windows... will swap for sunglasses holder <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: What's with the laminated side windows? (firehawk618)

The laminated glass also makes the car more quiet inside. Quite a difference in the outside noise. Compare with a volvo with non laminated glass and it is noticeable.

Anyone know if the laminated glass is only the 4 that move up and down in the doors, or would it also include the little stationary windows in the rear doors as well as backglass....????
