    Hi guys. Newbie here. Just picked up a '16 60 with pano.

    I was wondering if anyone with a 2016 MS pano has ever purchased the OEM Tesla sunshade? It states that it's compatible with vehicles manufactured prior to June 2015. Are the MS pants different in accordance to manufactured date? I would imagine these should fit all MS panos.

    Tesla — Model S Panoramic Roof Sunshades


    Alternatively, I was also thinking about these from Topfit via Amazon for $99;

    Amazon.com: Topfit Sunroof Sunshade for Tesla Model S (2 of Set): Cell Phones & Accessories

    Thoughts?

    What year is your car? Was it manufactured before June 2015?

    Mine is a 10/14 car and the Tesla ones fit great. I'd try the Topfits. Amazon will take them back if they don't fit and they are cheaper.

    Tesla informed me the screen would not fit my 2016 and directed me to Amazon. I ordered the Toplift and use it only for camping with roof open. It works great for keeping in fresh air and the sounds of crashing waves, and keeping out bugs. :eek: I've not used it for anything else.

    I've been using the TopFit one for about 6 months now with no issues

    While I have the Tesla one for both top and rear, a neighbor has TopFit. I think they're both very good so I'd go with Erandhawa recommendations even if there were not question about Tesla fitting. My only question (not a doubt, just question) is whether the TopFit has the very strong frame and tight fit that allow driving at high speed with sunroof open without glare or excessive wind. That is my favorite thing about mine. My neighbor never uses hers that way.

    I haven't driven with it, but it's a very tight fit. I get frustrated popping it in/out. it takes a few minutes and I want it done in one. :rolleyes:

    That makes me think it will be fine because very tight fit is one important part of high-speed survival. OTOH, I have not removed mine since I installed them nearly two years ago.
