Sunshade for Model Y (and also for 3) - Super Helpful especially in Texas! Highly recommended - here's my review.


Pros:
Light weight
Easy to install
Easy to remove
Two options - mesh and opaque
Keeps the cabin significantly cooler when driving and parked for few hours

Cons:
Sagging issues in the middle
Does not eliminate hot temps when parked for over 5+ hours

Overall, highly recommend it - I drive for 2+ hours every day and not having the sun on my head is an easy choice.

When I say it reduced temps 20 degrees - this is compared to having no shade and being parked out in the sun for several hours WITHOUT Cabin overheat protection.

With the Cabin overheat on, I noticed the battery drain was a bit less from the A/C than without it.

Once it cools down, i'll remove it or just use the mesh screen.

Thanks for the review. I like the opaque cover options, but I think I'd want cross-bracing to eliminate the sag.

We hate to sound biased but we just came out with our sag free sunshade. Let me know
Your thoughts!
Please post some real life pictures of your product. Other manufacturers with the one piece design have resorted to using magnets to get rid of the middle sag or switched to a 2-piece design.

Interested in how your product differs in design to eliminate the sag.
