    Is anybody using one? I saw the accordion style one that somebody posted here. Not very attractive, in my opinion. Looking for something that looks more tailored.

    I wanted something quick to take in and out, so I went with the "Tcisa Windshield Sunshade Jumbo 70 x 35" shade that I found on Amazon. it's technically too wide but that actually help keep it in place.

    @Lanzer, that one folds up really small...and it's cheap! Love that!

    @MarkinArch, did you look at the Covercraft one before choosing the HeatShield?

    I'm debating which style to get, the pop up kind or the big fold-up style.

    Nope, when I bought mine there were only a couple options out there and this was the best at the time. I had a similar type in my Audi so I was familiar with it already. I have never liked the collapsible ones, I can never seam to do it right.

    I have a Covercraft on order, but they are not shipping until next month. Not sure if they are waiting until they have enough orders for a run, or if they haven’t designed it yet.

    It's not a perfect fit. A bit on the small side, but it looks cool:

    @fr100, that's pretty cute! I have the red too. I might copy your idea!

    I got it on eBay for under $8. Sold on Amazon too if you want it faster.

    I wonder how long before Disney or Pixar gets ahold of the people making these and tells them to stop. I think it's a great idea and looks hilarious but it's obvious where the inspiration is from.

    This is the one I got. I think it might actually be licensed.

    Looking at it online I think the one we already carry is as good if not better to be honest. The storage bag is included in the price and it’s custom fit. They charge 69.95 for just the shade and another 14.95 for the bag and then another 9$ for shipping. The one I already carry is 64.95 including the bag and free shipping. I will still get one coming and we can do a comparison for everyone.

    I got this one as well and like it a lot. I've had one for our 17 Volt for two years and like it. I tried a folding one first in the Volt and hated it. Bulky, hard to fold and actually not very good at its job.

    Ok, maybe I'm being too fussy, but some of these look wrinkly. I guess I have it in my mind that I want it to look like the car was "born that way" with an integrated shade. A tailored fit like the roof shade that Tesla makes. Am I dreaming?

    Can you take a photo of your HeadShield, @Foxtrotter?
