I was looking for something to block the California sun during longer trips. Came across this on Amazon, bought it and I like it:
$69.99 gets you four shades for the front and rear side windows. They snap into the window frame and fit pretty good. The front ones do have a gap so you see the side mirrors.
Not affiliated with the product, just passing along the word...
what does it look like when the shades are up?
They look good. The rear ones cover the entire window. The front ones fit nicely, but have a gap in the front so you can see the mirrors. Kinda looks like in the picture I linked in my post. You can still see pretty well through the mesh, but it’s hard to look in from the outside. I wouldn’t drive with them snapped in, on surface streets. But for longer freeway trips, it’s ideal.
What happens when the door is opened? Since there’s no frame around the windows, they’ll fall on the ground when the doors are opened.
Yes :/ Unfortunately you have to snap them in and take them out before you open the door or hold it as you open the door. Not ideal :)
I got my 3 at the end of July. I'm surprised that the glass roof doesn't seem to be either a glare nor a heat issue. I'd figured shades were going to be mandatory, but have been doing fine so far. Near Sacramento.
These might be nice for a bit of privacy when car camping. Thanks for posting.
Hello, Would you be able to upload a photo of the shades installed in your model 3?
