Crash Blossom: Why would it melt a car to get a sunshade?

On an AP story today in my local paper:

UK tower accused of melting car to get sunshade

One might wonder whether the accused tower will get community service or a stronger sentence for melting that car to get its sunshade. Seems it would have been easier just to go down to the local Tesco to buy one, eh?

The actual story, of course, is that the reflective glare from the concave face of the glass office building in London is so strong it is blistering paint, and one Jaguar owner said it melted part of his car. So the owners are going to put horizontal aluminum fins on the building to absorb and diffuse the light.
