    Sorry I wasn't explicit enough for you. I would like to buy a sunshade for less money than Tesla sells it retail via their website (or service center). I would also like it to be in good enough condition to still function as a sun shade. I would also like to either pick it up myself if located near my location in Sacramento, CA, or be shipped to my house in the same location.

    Just my 2 cents: I had my glass roof tinted too when I got all windows tinted for ~$500. Mike Justis in Sac did the tint job and Xpel wrap on my 2 MS. PM me if this is something you think you would want and I can send you his contact info. I know you are trying to save $ by looking on TMC for anyone selling theirs, but the beauty of the glass roof is taken away when covered with the the sunshade.

    The believe my hatch glass is already tinted. For everyday use it is fine, but I'd like to try the sunshade for the benefit of my third-row passengers.

    The question isn't about pano roof or glass roof sunshades. It's about the rear liftgate sunshade for Model S.

    For what it's worth, I think the rear liftgate sunshade is useful and I leave mine in all the time. It does make a difference in keeping temperatures down in the 3rd row area. An added benefit is that it reduces headlight glare at night.

    Thanks @thecloud
    Tinted the rear liftgate 20% and haven't looked back after that, no pun intended.:D
