    Hi,

    Recently ordered my X and trying to be ready with a tint solution. From what I can tell, the windshield is the only window with UV protection. Is that true?

    Thx

    My local service center said "all windows in the Model X have UV protection". I put ceramic film on the front 2 windows regardless to get some heat out of them in sunlight.

    My understanding is:

    That's correct. But only the darkened glass segments offer increased levels of visible light and infrared reduction.

    All windows may have some level of protection but I don't thin the front driver/passenger side have any more than standard cars which is like 65%. Have been other threads on this. I also added tint to my front windows after I got the X.

    Below via quick google search: Not All Car Windows Protect Against UV Rays

    Which ceramic film did you use to tint your front 2 windows?
