    Living in a fairly northerly location I'd prefer my windows not to be tinted at all, as it's dark a lot in the winter months and dull a bit more than I'd like in the summer, certainly this year anyway. On the days when it is sunny I want to enjoy the maximum amount of light. However, if the electrochromic windows can be pretty much untinted then that would be a good solution. I could then have them clear most of the time and darken them if I travel further south. They might be useful when parked to hide the contents of the car too.

    An emphatic YES! If not, we'll have the windows tinted anyway.

    Aren't electro-chromatic windows selectable? While I wouldn't want my windows tinted 100% of the time, it would be nice to be able to "turn on" the tint when needed. In that case, I would choose the option.

    Depends on price, not sure how much more I'd be willing to pay. Do we have ANY idea what this might cost?
    I guess I can make curtains or shades if it's too bad! Might end up looking like the world's most exciting hearse. ;-)

    Yes, but only if it was controllable. I too live in an area where it's rather grey much of the winter. I don't think I would tint and perhaps make or buy shades for all the windows for camping.

    +1. The difference even just some tinting makes on a 95 degree day is huge!

    Obviously depends on price and function, so it's hard to postulate. But if they could heavily obscure while parked in the sun, for instance - that'd be very cool. (No pun intended, but I'll take what I can get.) Generally speaking, I will likely opt into most things on the car outside of a "P" type drive unit. Happy with my MS P85 and just don't see the need with an SUV. Features, though - I can be sold.
