      V60 aftermarket tints: pics wanted!

      Going to get my rear sides + rear tinted in the near future and was hoping people could share pics of their tinted V60s and the % tint that was used. There's lots of pics on the interwebz for the different levels but am hoping to see examples on the V60. Bonus points if it's Osmium Grey and thus a direct comparison for me Thanks in advance!

      Here is my 2020 V60 RD with 35% tint all around.

      If you want, I can take closer up pictures inside and out.

      There is no factory tint in the regular V60 (at least in the US)

      Thanks to stupid regulations in some states... It blows my mind how sedans/wagons/hatchbacks/coupes are not allowed to have rear side and back windows tinted but SUVs/MPVs/pickup trucks are...

      I’m confused what’s a “regular V60” not a CC?

      My CC windows factory tinted on rear sides, hatch, and the moon roof.

      Yup. Since the CC is classified as a multi-purpose vehicle, it can legally have factory tinted rear windows. Thankfully Volvo decided to make them standard in the U.S. for the CC.

      Here in the UK there’s no such reg thankfully. But weirdly Volvo doesn’t tint the S60 PE (or offer it) but do with the V60.

      What’s really annoying here in the UK is aftermarket tints count as a “modification” and make insurance either difficult to get and/or more expensive depending on the car and your driving profile.

      I’ve posted this pic before but it shows the uk factory tint well.

      Here's my Osmium Gray V60 with tint! Do it! It'll look great! (Unfortunately I can't remember which tint I got. It definitely wasn't the darkest available. Maybe 35%?)

      (Sorry...I don't know how to actually post a photo here...but you can see it in the link below to my IG...and follow me!)

      Also, you can build your V60 PE on the Volvo International website and have the option to add tinted windows...so you can see what it would look like!

      I highly recommend getting the front windshield done doo! I'm in California one of the worst states to be in regarding cop issues. You should not get pulled over simply for tinted windows, it's more like an add on. Also, cops don't like tinted windows on hoopties because a gun could be pointed at them. Incredibly unlikely in a VOLVO lol but either way if you get pulled over roll 4x windows down and if they mention the tint you say "I know you know, but I rolled them down for your safety". More than likely you'll be going on home ticket free.

      I made the mistake of going "legal" on my last car and regretted it. I got clear tint on the front windows and windshield still for UV protection and heat rejection but I hated it. Every day I drove I wanted to upgrade it but the tint I get is not cheap and I'm frugal so I suffered. At least 5% reason why I sold the truck :-P

      GO DARK OR GO HOME AND GET YOUR FRONT WINDSHIELD DONE AND THE ROOF DONE IN CLEAR FOR UV/HEAT REJECTION

      No Tint

      Sexy Tint


      Literally no difference in the car except for tint. Makes such a nice difference!
