Windshield tint and adaptive cruise

Anyone with windshield tint and adaptive cruise have any issues with the forward facing camera? Does ACC still work?

Thanks,

B

Re: Windshield tint and adaptive cruise

?? The ACC uses a forward facing radar, the ball under the front bumper. A change in the windshield would have no effect. The rain sensing wipers (and auto headlights and AC control) have sensors under the windshield, however.

Re: Windshield tint and adaptive cruise

Thats the rain sensor for the auto wipers or the light sensor for the auto dimming headlights, both of those are in the rear view mirror assembly.

Yeah, that's what I thought originally and told the tint guys, but they seemed to think otherwise. At any rate, glad there won't be an issue.

Thanks all.

Re: Windshield tint and adaptive cruise

me too - have my windshield tinted 80% and no problems with rain sensing wipers or auto head lights. my installer even put the tint over the black dots because he thought it would be okay (and it has been). love it.

Mine's 50%. With 30% front sides. Just had the windshield done... still drying, etc... the dots shouldn't be a problem, if anything, they'll appear a bit reflective from the front. Overall, it looks pretty badass. The only complaint I have is when wearing polarized sunglasses just about everything looks "iridium" through the film... I can deal.
