    solar reflective windscreen

    do they have a blue tint to them or are they clear on the gsi turbo?

    i was sure mines had a blue tint but as i now need mine replaced the guy at r.a.c windscreens said that if its solor reflective it cant have a blue tint it must be clear and it only looks tinted because the car is blue

    does anyone know any facts about the windscreen as i dont want a clear one put in if mine is tinted

    cheers for any help

    Climate Control models have the heat reflective screen, not sure about any other models.

    Solar Reflective screens are a cost options as new ( Built into a package as Mark T said possibly with Climate Control ).
    The glass is not tinted like a standard screen but instead has a purple reflective layer within the screen which is designed to keep the car cooler in the summer months, and I'm also told but RAC & Autoglass that this relective layer stops some of the harmful UV rays ?? ( I'll take there word for it )

    I had mine replaced with a Solar Reflective screen and yes you can get a Solar Reflective Screen with gradual top tint ( which is blue ) on mine.
