    Cheers mate. . I know they were optional (I assume on all models)
    Think may be standard on the ex ones.

    Trying to source some original tinted glass. . Seen a pic of one online with a breaker down south but they can't tell me if it is the smoked glass or if it had
    Been tinted with film.

    If they could give you the chassis number I'm sure the guys here could tell you what model it is and whether it was tinted as standard??

    Not sure about pre 56 plate, but I think sport plus leather had tinted as standard, 07 onwards had tinted on ES AND EX. Sometimes there appears to be some that are specced differently. Try the brochures link.
    Watching your upgrades with interest!

    The FR-V is one of the models where privacy glass is just window tint which the dealer sent off to have fitted I believe, @Ichiban should be able to confirm.

    Nope they were proper dark glass fitted at the factory mate which is now pretty mush standard on the current Honda's. When I got my 8th Generation MY13 it had privacy glass the MY12 did not so when I went to pick up my car I was jumping with joy as it was what I wanted.

    just to complicate matters more. . . with the factory tint, , was there only ever 1 shade.
    I have found someone that has the tailgate glass and rear quarters and someone else that has the back door glass.. . was just worried they wouldn't match up .

    What sort of tint are you going for on the front doors? officially they should let 70% light through but you can get away with 60-70 according the direct gov, anything less tan that and its a rectification notice :-/
    been toying with darkening the front sides but could do without the tug.

    Not going to do the fronts at all. . Just the back. Probably just a medium smoke,,, it's more to cool the back of the car for the babies (or at least that's the excuse I used with the other half haha)
