    Tinted Frontlights Option

     Not sure if you guys have seen this, looks pretty damn cool in my opinion, especially on dark colors. Yes, factory option. The picture has been taken in bright sunlight, you can see it from the right Cayenne and the very "shiny" frontlight (and unfortunately also from the pollen on the paint).

    Re: Tinted Frontlights Option

    Looks good - I presume the tinting makes no difference to the power of the headlights?

    I mean... tinted windscreens reduce sunlight coming in... so why doesn't this impair light going out?

    Re: Tinted Frontlights Option

    AFAIK it's usually possible for filters to restrict light coming in one direction while allowing it to pass unhindered in the opposite direction.

    Thanks Darius - that clears it up. Smiley

    Probably wrong to call them "Tinted Headlights" then..?

    In the configurator, they are called, "Bi-Xenon lighting system, Black"

    Re: Tinted Frontlights Option

    Looks much more harmoneus especially on darker colors.

    But I think the transparent covers of the lights are also slightly tinted because not only does the backround plastic looks darker color (dark plastic instead of silver-mirror type) but also the inside "lenses" look much darker through the covers which would lead to believe that the cover is tinted as well, or maybe its an effect of the picture

     

    Anyway, yet another way to Porsche get you in the optional equipment.

    mmh..i think is all fault of the darker parts inside,and also the lenses have a darker aspect..due to darker reflex of the parts around them..

    i think the cover can't be darker due to problem of "going through" of  bixenon lights ,BTW we need  other pics!!Smiley

    Re: Tinted Frontlights Option

    the cover could be dark when looked from the outside but clear from the inside like some tinted windows or see through mirrors with unidiretional filters but definately looks more clear in that picture  you posted

    Re: Tinted Frontlights Option

    Great picture RC.  I saw the option but couldn't find any pictures showing the difference.  Glad you posted it Smiley

    Happy Driving

    Re: Tinted Frontlights Option

    Wandering what the retrofit option would set you back, the front lights slide out very easily so changing them wouldn't be a bit deal. (2500 Euro option?)

    Re: Tinted Frontlights Option

    Ive seen this already. Looks great and on dark colors for me a must. 470 € for having a plain black instead a chromed frame... . Thats Porsche

    Carlos from Spain:

    My work with illuminated displays lets me speculate a bit.

    The "black" effect probably works this way:  For a given tint level, the attenuation of the headlamp output is only half as much as the reflected light originating from outside the cover.  This is because reflected light has to make two trips through the tinted covering while the light originating inside the fixture only has to pass through the tint once.

    If the tint has 15% light loss, the headlamp will be dimmer by 15% (0.85 of original level) when using a tinted cover but the reflections will be 0.85 x 0.85 or lose about 28% of the non-tinted value.

    It's the same deal as window tints.  Make sense?

    "One-way" mirrors work by the same principle.  They are "mostly" reflective, but maybe only 90% reflective.  They let 10% (or so) of the light pass through to the other side.  The observer sits in a darkened room for two reasons.  1) because the image seen through the back of the mirror is somewhat dim, and 2) because if the observer had lots of illumination, the 10% of the room light that made it from the observation room into the main event room might be bright enough to "leak" through the mirror effect and reveal the observers to the observed.

    Mirrored sunglasses anyone?

    Re: Tinted Frontlights Option

    As far as I know the glass itself is not tinted at all. Its the frame which is colored black instead silver.


    Re: Tinted Frontlights Option

    aftermarket tint not possible?


    Re: Tinted Frontlights Option

    i did it in my range rover , but it was thick 3m film , protect against stones and gives approximately same look .
