Anyone have info or thoughts on the Glass upgrade?

I am considering for UV and noise, but will be driving below 80mph and I heard from Porsche rep that even the standard glass is still UV coated.

Thermally & Noise Insulated Glass

Laminated glass with increased reflection for:

  • Noticeably improved acoustics due to the minimization of external noises
  • UV protection
  • Reduced warming of the interior

I have this in my build. No idea how well it'll work. I'm going purely by what it states "minimize external noises" and "reduce warming of the interior".

Another advantage of this glass is that it is also a lot more difficult for thieves to "smash & grab" in your car,
on the minus side in case of emergency it's a lot harder to break the window to get out of the car https://www.google.ch/amp/s/www.caranddriver.com/news/amp28422725/car-windows-glass-aaa-unbreakable/

Another article that has information I had not seen before. From March 2019

Christophorus - 03/2019 Innovative Components in the Porsche Taycan

https://christophorus.porsche.com/en/2019/392/taycan-components.html

THERMAL GLASS ROOF
Only 5.8mm thick.
... The thermal glass does it all: it completely blocks UV radiation, significantly reduces infrared radiation, and boasts excellent noise-insulating properties. What’s new is the multilayered insulation and coating extending into the passenger compartment. These ensure that, on hot days and cold, and even in close proximity to the glass, the temperature feels like it does in the rest of the interior. ...

Look forward to feedback from people in North East and folks in Florida.
Or Norway and Saudi Arabia.
