privacy glass

It's called privacy glass and must be standard on the 140s.

Added tint and that *really* brought out the 'privacy'.

Not true. No MB comes standard with tinted windows, albeit the ML. Atleast in my area. Maybe this is different elsewhere? I do know that the original sticker of my car stated that is came with PRIVACY GLASS, which I don't understand?? Because my front windows are tinted too... and that's not even legal, atleast not in CA? Or maybe I am mistaken... maybe PRIVACY GLASS means something else...?

Privacy Glass . . . .

It's NOT tinted glass.

PG is a half mirrored type glass, I guess similar to a one way glass. At the right angle, it's alnost impossible to see in. All you see it your reflection!

Seems like it was standard on S500, S600 140s.

My 94 S350 doesn't have such glass. Tinted a little bit, but not like a mirror.

Neil.
