    Picked up my new 2012 Prius last week and have absolutely loved it since day 1. Wife and Baby are all very happy with the purchase.

    By feet do you mean shoes?

    Are those rear windows tinted or is it just me?

    Same color as my V5; love it - very nice pic. As to tints, does anyone know if that is an expensive involved process e.g. do the window need to be removed before tinting. I most definitely need tints as it feels like I'm driving around in a fish bowl.
    Love the Prius V5, look for excuses to drive now.
    Regards

    :cool: I like the color! How is that tinting., I mean do you have to worry about it scratching when cleaning the windows? I miss the privacy tint on our old Explorer, but I don't want something that is going to look like hell in a year or so like some tints I have seen, nor do I want something I have to baby to protect..

    Thanks

    The tinting is pretty durable (3M)... the car wash guys clean it. I have two small kids that put their fingers all over it and no scratches yet. Having small kids and the windows being so big on the v I can't imagine not having tint.

    What percentage of tinting did you apply? Does
    the amount of tinting you applied affect visibility
    out the back window?

    Our Prius v is about 10 days old, and my wife
    (it's her car) is interested in tinting the windows.

    My thought is to choose a tint that is dark
    enough to prevent people from easily seeing
    into the back, but not too dark otherwise.
