Factory rear privacy glass, anyone have it?

As the thread title does anyone have the factory privacy glass on a Panda, or have had their rear windows tinted after the fact?

I'm keen to get mine done, but want it to look factory, not chav spec, just need to find some reliable pictures.

Looking at a 20% or 35% tint perhaps, based on the attached image, I'll be able to decide better when I see examples in the flesh.

Anyone have any thoughts or advice?

Re: Factory rear privacy glass, anyone have it?

I've got the factory tints on mine. They're quite dark, but I've no idea what percentage they are. I think they work very well visually on the Cross, because of the way they blend into the black plastic of the 3/4 panel and the rear light surrounds. The whole effect makes the car look lower and less top-heavy (relatively speaking!).

Thanks for your replies guys, I've found a couple of pics, only ones I can say for sure are tinted, are on an Antarctic and they seem extremely dark, I'm hoping for a bit more of a subtle difference between the front and rear windows.

Re: Factory rear privacy glass, anyone have it?

I went for nearly every other option on my Panda, but not the tinted rear windows.

It always looks bizarre to me when the the front and rear side windows on cars don’t match.

I agree to an extent, it's often more noticeable on lighter-coloured cars, I just don't want that obvious 'barry boy' tint.

Sympathetically done It can look good I think

Re: Factory rear privacy glass, anyone have it?

Just do a google image search (try Fiat Panda Cross) and you'll find loads of pictures of Pandas of all hues with rear tints. I can't see how a picture of mine, which is covered in grime and green mould at the moment, is going to advance your decision-making process (and anyway, I've never worked out how to upload photos onto here...)

Re: Factory rear privacy glass, anyone have it?

I'd like to get tints on my red lounge, but wondering how easy it is to see out when reversing, especially at night. Any comments?
