    You will see a slight bluey/greeny reflective appearance. Or you can post the VIN number and someone will look on the Mercedes database for you !

    Cheers

    From the decoded VIN, it isn't.

    Quite rare to see a W220 320 with infrared glass spec'd tbh. It wasn't a cheap option so not many people ticked that particular option box.

    You'll know if you have it because the side windows have an obvious purple/blue tint, and this is teamed with the rear screen having the same properties too.

    Looks like this:
