I have never owned a sunshade for any of my cars but as it gets hotter and hotter and i get older i am thinking of getting one... Who all uses one and which ones seem to fit the windshield the best and work the best..I suppose looks should factor somewhere in there too.. Its an odd queston but i dont want to buy a crappy 10 dollar auto parts one when there might be a far superior one out there.

yeah, cost isn't much of a factor, you'd be amazed how much cooler the interior will stay not to mention the protection afforded the interior...we know here in FL...tinted windows help a ton as well, the newer films make night driving much better than the old stuff.

On the rare occasion the Mustang is parked outside I use a freebee I got at the Ranger game, it goes from a small circle to a big oval and there is two of them and it has Texas Rangers logo on them...GO! Rangers!!!!

Ditto. I picked mine up for $6 and it keeps my seats, dash, and steering wheel cooler to the touch.

I use a $13 foil Auto Expressions (AE) brand from PeP Boys. It covers the entire area with with only a tiny bit of exposure at the top and bottom. Not enough to matter.

The heat and sun destroy everything out here in no time anyway, so high dollar shades will last no longer than the cheapies. 114 degrees with no cloud cover for months on end will getcha. :cooldude:

I went with the Covercraft and love it.

The cheaper ones seem to 1. fall apart quickly and 2. leave a weird film on the glass.

True. That's why I bought a cheap shade to protect my Covercraft shade. :winks

I hear ya. Sooner or later I'm gonna have the back windows sraped and go with limo tint (they were pretty dark from the local Ford dealership but not quite dark enough), and probably sign a legal waiver and go a little darker on the door glass.

They last about the same amount of time, but the "twist your wrists and fold it into a circular pouch" versions tend to tear earlier, and are a PITA compared to the simpler (but more expensive) silver backed version...

After using both, I went for "easy fo fold" model to minimize frustration... ;)

I use one and it does a decent job, well except when the top is down :kooky:
