And then today the time has come. Already in mid-April we had detailed information about the Solarplexius sun protection system as an alternative to window tinting berichtet and pointed out that we do just that in ours Editorial and test vehicle will try. We did that today and removed our original GM sun protection screens in return. When viewed from the inside in particular, the Solar-Plexius system is the perfect alternative for a three-door model like our Corsa. While we can understand the concerns of some interested parties in the case of a vehicle in which the rear windows can be opened, this is precisely the topic that is not up for debate with our vehicle. So perfect ...
This is what our Corsa looked like without tinted windows:
The following gallery shows the GM factory solution. From the outside the whole thing actually looked acceptable but not from the inside. The rear window solution in particular could have been better implemented. The system available from GM consists of two parts for the rear window which, if correctly installed, have a good 15mm gap in the middle. We helped each other with the help of a cable tie and firmly connected the two parts. It was not visible from the outside, but of course from the inside it was anything but optimal. In addition, you always had the impression that the rear wiper has stopped in the middle. Very annoying ... Also a big drawback is the fact that it is thin, dark and perforated fabric which is of course not very translucent and greatly restricts the view to the rear. The side windows, on the other hand, apart from the also very cloudy view to the outside, were problem-free to use and fit.
This is what our Corsa looked like with the GM variant:
The following is the Solarplexius system with brief installation instructions for you:
Special praise goes to the accuracy of fit and the deep black look from the outside. Looking into the vehicle is now almost impossible and the view from the inside out is much brighter than with the factory accessories. The view through the rear window, which is now completely free, is completely unfamiliar.
All in all, especially recommended for a three-door car like the Corsa OPC. Many thanks again to the Solarplexius team.
