  • Window Tinting on NS Exceed

    The Dealer has offered us Window Tinting, saying the vehicles he had were with aftermarket tinting.

    In the Pajero Brochure the page showing "Colours and Trim" shows every vehicle with tinting on all windows behind the front doors - which is what we want.

    Is this tinting standard on the NS Exceed

        Hi Mike,
        As the others have said, the glass is of a coloured tint and is a privacy type glass. I had the two front windows tinted to match the rear glass so they all looked alike.

              Just by the way Mike, its the same story on the SWB, the rear windows are also dark. I asked the dealer for a quote to get the front windows to match and found them quite expensive. Went to Sol-Ace and got a much better deal.

                I have also heard that the privacy glass does not offer the same UV protection as tinted windows. So you can still have clear film applied to them.

                  I had heard this too, but was told the privacy glass is called "ez-kool" and has better uv protection than tint - haven't been able to 100% confirm this statement though.

                    It won't stop UV as well as tint will.

                    Window tint has UV filters in the adheasive layer to stop the film getting damaged, it is a bonus that it protects the occupants.

                      Do you really need better UV protection ?

                      Even decades ago, when glass had no tinting, you would not get a tan if you drove with the windows shut.

                        Exactly my thought when I read this too!.

                        Although on a much smaller scale I tested the relevance of paying for extra "UV" protection when buying glasses from optical stores and surprisingly when tested in a scanning UV spectrophotometer, plain glass was very effective at blocking UV and there was only a minimal effect of the film. In addition whenever I want to analyse in the UV range with samples in my line of work, I cannot use glass cuvettes and must switch to quartz ones as glass does not allow transmission of UV. Thus, when it comes to the UV protection effect, I'm not convinced that is a valid claim. Preventing IR (infra red) - and stopping the car heating up so much, in order to reduce plastics melting in the car - that I can accept - but not UV protection.

                          As a separate note - I decided not to bother with the tinting on the front two windows out of principle - although it may be worthwhile as a 3rd party addition from a tinting store. The price I was quoted for the tinting was no different for the front side windows on the VRX compared to getting the whole lot done ( + passenger doors, rear compartment windows and rear door) on a GLX (which does not have the privacy glass). Thus, as far as I was concerned, they were just trying to rip me off, so I crossed it off the list when I finally put my order together a number of months back.

                            I decided to not have any additional tinting put on the front windows because at night, it would be like driving with sunglasses on.

                            It reduces the chance of seeing pedestrians or other hazards, because everything will be darker.

                              I decided to get the front 2 windows done, but only for the look. I never bother tinting windows on a car but since all the back windows are dark I reckon it just does not look right with the front 2 side windows without tint.

                              I paid $200 to have the 2 windows tinted before delivery
                              thanks,
