How well does the glass roof reflect heat?

I thought it could do better. I did 3M crystalline on every window. 70 on everything except the front door windows (40). It’s much better, but I’m in Florida.

I'm just trying to stay on topic. Not sure why you pointed out that "he specifically asked about the roof glass on the MY." I never said he didn't.
Anyway, taken from Model Y | Tesla:
Premium Interior
[...]
Tinted glass roof with ultraviolet and infrared protection
[...]
So to answer the original question: yes, the glass roof is very good at reflecting heat from the sun. Tesla has been using this glass on all their vehicles and it works well.

Very, very well. It's almost too dark for my tastes, but we'll see come August! Seriously, it's one of the best features of the car. Really, really nice and was very surprised at how comfortable it is under the sun in it. Parking with no shade is problematic, but we decided that we'll take the major good with the minor bad.

Good luck!
