    Saw another picture like that when an X had rain on the top. Is the car damp? Seems to be a bit of a dew layer on the hood too.

    Pretty cool!

    It is the X telling you it really, really wants to be Sig Red. ;-)

    But that is a beautiful blue.

    It's the polarizing layer in the glass. You can see the same thing with polarized sunglasses when held at the appropriate angle to the sun relative to your eyes.
