Sun shades for Model 3? Especially roof, rear glass and side windows?

    I've been on the lookout for sun shades for our M3 for basically all the windows but the windshield (already got one for the front).

    On road trips, we do a lot of car camping (with a high end twin mattress and all the works, highly recommended!) but we're looking to keep it darker, cooler and a little more private.

    I'm not looking for mesh, I'm looking for something that's reflective / with aluminum foil.

    I've been looking on amazon but I couldn't find all the parts. I've seen the Evannex kit, but the price is a little steep. Found roof and rear window, but couldn't find reflective shades for the side windows.

    Can any point me in the right direction? Thanks!

    Any reason why you don't want to get a good tint with such as 3M Colorstable or Crystalline tint?

    Windows are tinted, looking to get shades to put in for overnight to get it way darker. Occasionally we stay on parking lots overnight and the lights are veeeery bright.

    The tint does next to nothing in those situations

    We have this (below) going since Jun/Jul 2019... and initially checked with the UK based firm over a year ago... back then they had no EU destined Model 3s to work with, now they do.

    Holding pattern continues:

    @kai2002 , did you order anything yet? I got an email that HeatShield has a 25% off sale for Black Friday/Cyber Monday going. Code "BFCM19" valid from 11/27/19 - 12/3/19 new orders. It's listed on their site as well.

    Hey, just saw this (also thanks for the PM!)! Just ordered! If anybody else wants to get this - the coupon only reflects on the price at the very end.

    Happy shading!
