Default SQ5 OEM window tint

Do SQ5s have more tint than a Q5? I noticed how transparent Q5s are when driving - my SQ5 is on order.

My Q5 has factory tint and is just as dark as the SQ5s that were on the dealer's lot.

At least in NA it's the same, might vary by region, possibly. Front windows are straight glass (supposedly ~80% VLT for typical glass, not sure here), my rears metered at 29% VLT, and the panoramic sunroof seemed darker than the rear windows.

But if you're in an area that gets hot, you'd want tint for heat rejection anyway, even if the darkness from the factory dye is suitable.
