    I had a recent incident involving the vandalism of my car. My back hatch was smashed with a brick, and the window was damaged. The original color of the hatch glass was solid black, the same color as the sun-roof. A tech later came out and replaced the glass.....but with the wrong tint to it. This tint was GREEN! It did not match any other part of the car.I would like to know the name of the original hatch glass tint and where I can find another like it. It was not the factory vinyl tint.

    I would give the dealership a call or look on your other pieces of glass for the manufacturer, they may also know what the tint percentage would be.

    Sorry, this was posted in a section that I don't peruse much. There are no options for a smoked glass for any of the windows. The roof glass does appear to be smoked to block direct UV rays but the glass is the same in all tC's. Not sure how or why you ended up with a smoked hatch. Are you the only owner of the car? Is it possible that the glass was broke before and replaced with an aftermarket glass that was designed incorrectly to be smoked?
