So over on Pistonheads someone said that speccing privacy glass will mean you can't see the engine through the rear hatch. Is that right? I assumed it just meant the side windows were tinted, not the glass covering the engine bay itself.
Likewise great insight and another change I need to make in January ! Apart from the colour I’ve changed everything else !Thanks Tom. Hadn't realised that. Might have to reconsider my decision to go with the privacy glass. That said presumably it's just a film so can be removed later if wanted.
Both the Blue show car and the working car had clear glass, definitely going for that as I agree that the car will need good lighting inside.I'm not sure, it may be in the glass. I didn't ask at the roadshows and I've been trying to work out if any of the show cars or pre-prod cars have privacy glass. I don't think they do, which makes it hard to gauge how dark it will be. The configurator also doesn't change if you toggle it!
I'm going for no privacy glass, on the basis the headlining is black and hence more natural light is good plus clear over the engine bay. If I lived in Florida I might think about tinting due to the solar load, but not in the UK 😎
I can’t find the right article but basically it read that a car you can see through will make a comeback.I've deleted. I am not a drug dealer. And to quote His Royal Highness Chris Harris . . . "It will soon be impossible to find a used car without privacy glass. I fucking hate privacy glass."
Thank you for that. I’d love to see that view right over the top of it with and without. Should be an easy one to get.Looks like the privacy glass is like a very dark tint. You'll certainly have more aftermarket options if you delete it. I'm sure you can still see the engine if you are standing right on top of it during the day, but it won't be clear. It's not a 100% block of visibility.
