    That's a whole bunch of color temperatures in one photo.

    How effective is the factory auto-tinting, I wonder? Does it have a sunblock rating? I've noticed many Mercs have a sea-foam tint to their windows, which looked distinctive.

    i think solar tinting is fairly common in expensive models from several brands. yellow, however, seems like sort of an off-putting color choice.

    In the case of the mirror, it probably has some type of optical coating that reduces glare at night, but has a yellow cast in daytime.

    Yellow provides better and more comfortable contrast for safety. Same reason they use yellow for legal pads.

    @akula1, how is a lawyer made safer with a yellow pad? Or is the public safer...?

    Blue tinted mirrors are standard on BMWs, the choice of yellow seems... interesting.
