I know! I want it so badly! I'd rather have Quickclear/Instaclear, but I hear it doesn't play well with the I-PASS system. Maybe we should get rid of those too?

Yeah I'd like the quickclear/ instaclear windshield like Europe gets, but it would be cost prohibitive to retrofit, and the glass alone would be so expensive unfortunately.

Generally windshields with heating elements or antennas in them are double the cost or more than a plain one. The difference in the old heads up display windshields on I think Acura was about six times the cost. Has been about seven years since I worked at a glass place so I'm a little fuzzy on details

I don't think this has been mentioned yet, if you are getting an SE or Ti without the special color trim packages (Tuscany Red, Arctic White) the center console 'brightwork' will be a darker color silver in the Ti than in the SE. Also the 'J' shaped piece below and above the cupholders is interior color in the SE and is the dark silver color in the Ti. For 2013 models anyways. Same thing for the tiny silvers pieces on the doors near the window controls.

The big differences have already been touched on, primarily the differences are available options, minor trim piece improvements (padded door sills, all windows auto-up/down), and superficial stuff like the chrome accents inside and the chrome hockey stick along the doors.

That's not a TI vs SE thing though. Active park assist is an option. I have a TI but didn't go with the park assist so I don't have senors mucking up the looks of my car.
