    We just had tinted yesterday with llumar CTX 30% front and 15% rear, I think it came out excellent but it is our first prof. install.

    Hey Folks,
    Maybe this is a dumb question but just wondering how the auto darkening rear view mirror is affected with tinted rear window? Driving at night with vehicles behind you, does the tint block out enough glare from headlights that the rear view mirror does not darken at all or does it still darken and make it even harder to see out back?
    Not sure which trims the auto darkening/homelink mirror is available on in the US. I have it on the luxury package on my Canadian Prius v.
    Thanks

    It's not a dumb question.

    However, the mirror won't auto darken as much as the light sensor is not going to pick up as much light to be triggered to do so.

    And that mirror is available to ATP package for the US.

    I finally broke down and tinted my windows. Got tired of having lights shine through the back at night and people being able to see in all the time. I did CTX15 on the front and CTX30 everywhere else. Completely different feel inside now! IMG_0307.jpg IMG_0308.jpg

    I sleep in my car a lot. I couldn't imagine doing that without tinted windows.
