Aloha everyone,

I am looking for a well made sun shade for my windshield. Has anyone found one that they are thrilled with?

I watched the Money Guy U-tube and bought the floor mats that he had and they are Perfect.

thanks for any suggestions...

Happy Driving!

The folding ones tend to be the only ones that last in my experience. The roll up ones are too flimsy and end up collapsing over time, that heatshield one included. The spring loaded ones are just annoying to put away, avoid like the plague.

This is the one I went with:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CYGJ1TB/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's very similar to the OEM BMW sunshades which have lasted more than a decade on my BMWs.
I'm guessing the one I linked is the spring loaded one. To me they are not annoying to put away, and I love that they take up very little space when put away.

I'll second or third the Heat Shield. Works great, easy to roll up, I keep it on the rear floor. My 4 and 6 year old have no problems manuevering around it en route to their car seats

Second this recommendation. My pics are the white Tesla with a wood/CMU fence behind it on
Amazon

I went with earthwormjim's suggestion, it's on the way via Amazon.

Thanks everyone.
Good choice!

I'm with those that recommend the Covercraft HeatShield.

Covercraft® - UVS100™ Heat Shield

Fits the M3 like it was made by Tesla.

Aloha fellow drivers.
I have received the sun shade and l o v e it. It is well made, stays in place and does an excellent job of blocking heat.

Thanks everyone!

Just wanted to share some intel on my profile pic; my auto is plugged into my house and the very cool thing is that my house is 100 % off the grid via solar. How very excited I am!
