How to cool off the glasses quickly? I am surrounded by the heat with cold air blowing.

    I am in TX!!! The large glass roof seems like a disadvantage here, they heat up so quickly in the hot weather.

    I am surrounded by the heat with cold air blowing.

    Is there something to cool off the glasses?

    There are several companies who make shades, and Tesla offers them as well

    Have you tried that sun shades that came with the car? I have never used mine (still in the frunk) but other owners say they help.

    I don't think they cover the front and side windows though. For that you need to go to the aftermaket.

    I installed heat rejecting ceramic tint covering all windows that isn't the windshield. Reduces the glasshouse effect in a big way. For the windshield, I use the tried and tested silver foil reflector thingy.

    also 'clear' ceramic tint on the front windshield does help (at least in my MS) in the summer in Houston

    Texas law allows for the entire front windshield to be filmed/tinted with a “clear” un- tinted film that does not visibly alter or color the glass when viewed in natural daylight. ..
