F56 - Darkend Glass

I've ordered a Cooper S (Volcanic Orange) and spec'ed the darkened glass at the £120 -

The car arrived yesterday and it appears that the glass has no tint, but the salesman is adamant that it does have darkened glass...

Does anyone have pictures of their Cooper S with the darkened glass to give some kind of idea or is this a poor tint, as it does not seem to be worth £120.

Thanks

I have a JCW with the factory rear darkened tint and its not as dark as some of the other cars, such as my Range Rover as standard.
You can still see through the MINIs from outside fairly easily where the Range Rover you cant.
I believe the MINI tint is designed to remove some of the UV light and not to stop you seeing into it, that types called privacy glass?

I stopped by the Birmingham showroom at the weekend and they had a row on F56's out front, you can definitely see the side-by-side difference with the Darkened Glass.. It's not a limo tint but it's noticeable.
