2019 Model 3 Tint / Roof Question

hi, live near Victorville, Ca. Temp daily around 100F. always near top of roof, heat is excessive, can feel heat on my head, in fact. Am assuming car is built for this type of heat stress. But to minimize heat dissipation thru glass roof, would simply tinting the roof be enough? And if so, anyone know what % of tint is legal / sufficient, out in Ca.?

Plz advise, thanks

I believe legal in CA is 70% on front side windows, and anything on the back and rear window. That being said I've always done 50% on my front windows without any issues. Just tinted my M3 with 50% all around and 70% on the windshield for heat reduction.

Most places won't do the moonroof due to possible cracking. So agree with the post above to just get sunshade. Otherwise if a place is willing the top can be whatever you want
