@arkhitekt it's not matter of trend. It's a matter of laws..Well.. in US there are some federal laws and then some State laws. Every state has different laws when it comes to tints.. as far as front windshield, you can't have a tint below AS 1 line as marked on screen. The distance of AS line is diffrent for diffrent vehicles from the joint between roof line and glass. On cars it's mostly 6". Problem is in some states the front tint is not allowed at all even in top 6" or whatever. Like in NYC 6" on top is allowed but then there are some states where it's 5".. So mostly manufacturer keep it plain so that owner apply a tint if they want as per their state law. Manufacturer need to comply to Federal and state laws.. That's why for example when it comes to lighting and car bumper laws.. federal laws are followed.. when it's emissions, manufacturer need to follow 50 state emission standards which is diffrent.. that's why car sale sticker specifically mentions compliance to 50 state emissions standard..
