Got mine for $41 after 25% discount from Advance Auto website, 5% cashback via shopping at advance auto through the couponcabin.com website, than 5% cashback by paying with Discover through Paypal as part of the Discover 5% rotating quarter (Paypal)

Looks like I might have crafted the art of installing this, not pushing it all the way down to the bottom of window... still some opening around the mirror and an inch or so on the driver side pillar...

After 3 days of 85-90 and parking in the sun... I have determined this does not keep the car cooler any means. The car is still blistering hot as without. Same goes with the cheap $14 walmart sunshades.

The main thing is how its heated though... this is to do with any sunshade in general. You car parked outside is going to be like 120-130F as the entire car warms up baking in the sun. Put something reflective at the windshield and you can knock it down a little bit.


The part it helps is the dash isn't like 400 degrees. When you turn on the AC, the AC doesn't have to first cool down the dash area to spit out cooler air. The smoking dash also doesn't cook off your eyebrows with the "cold" air first blowing through its jetsream induced updrafts either.

I had been throwing mine in and letting it fall down the crack which left a gap at the top and sides but I wasn't too worried about it. Today I fiddled with it and tried clamping it between the sun visors and the headliner which works great. You can hold it up by the rear view mirror area while clamping it. The bottom sits perfectly flush to the black outline on the glass and the pillar fitment is much closer.
