    My model X came with a tinted rear window. This markedly reduces rear vision. Where can I get a clear rear window?

    All Model Xs have tinted rear windows. Tesla does not manufacture non-tinted rear windows for the Model X. Every SUV and/or minivan we've had in our household came with tinted rear glass standard as well, so this seems typical.

    In my experience this only matters at night, and when driving at night I'm primarily looking for cars, so their headlights make it easy to see them even through the tinted glass.

    The rear camera can be helpful in situations where the rear window tint impairs visibility, such as parking or other close maneuvers at night. Have you given that a try?
