    From what I understand, glass in general blocks UV.

    A little lift & some extra steel....

    Yup....all the new cars have this, even when the window is not tinted. This is why my transition lens glasses never darken when driving in the car, even with the sun in my eyes.....major pain in the ass. :mad:
