Thank you! I got it on Amazon. It does ship from China though, so I had to wait a while to get mine.

u/ArmyCop119 · 5 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I just bought this one, after wanting it for some time.

It seems to be decent.

u/gcalpo · 5 pointsr/TeslaPorn

I imagine that owner owns the requisite sunshade.

Bonus: There's a photo of red Model 3 w/ the sunshade in the reviews.

It looks like it just went out of stock. I might have bought one of the last ones. It JUST arrived (like a week ago).

u/TheKnightWhoSaysMeh · 4 pointsr/Shitty_Car_Mods

27$ and it's done.

I bet there's even cheaper ones.

Folding Ultimate Windshield Sunshade for Tesla Model 3 2018 2019 Custom Fit Sun Shade

It’s very pricey for a sunshade ($60) but honestly its been great. Folds up easy, good fit, very sturdy (not floppy) and has a nice carry bag to stow it in.

Ultimate cheapo solution: Car windshield shades.
I've slept on one of those for a few days just fine. Layer a few for colder weather.
If you go inflatable, Klymit has great options that are under $50 if you shop around. I wouldn't trust anything cheaper- When it punctures or leaks you'll have a long cold night and then have to replace it anyway. Also the cheap ones won't pack nearly as small.

Link to amazon to purchase :

u/Essobie · 3 pointsr/teslamotors

This one is very cheap, and initially feels very cheap, but it sets up extremely fast, breaks down extremely fast (once you learn the magic handshake twist move to break it down), stores very small, and does cover 99% of the Model 3 with shade.

u/djgabriel2004 · 3 pointsr/TeslaLounge

I bought them from Amazon. They have a little plastic tabs that hold them in place

I bought this and it fits perfectly.

u/germanbini · 2 pointsr/homeless

Hey I'm not the OP, for more info please go to the original post to congratulate them. :)

Personally I DO live in a van, it's a 1992 Chevy G20 Gladiator. I have a memory foam mattress on top of a wooden platform, totes and cardboard boxes for storage (food, clothing, etc.) underneath. having the mattress off the floor gives space for storage, and also insulates the mattress from the heat or cold of the ground.

For privacy I have tinted windows, non-adhesive window film, collapsible foil sunshade for the front window, and black bug screen mesh like this for the side windows.

For water I use sturdy Arizona tea jugs. I have a basic Coleman camping toilet for nighttime and emergency uses - some people simply use pee bottles or five gallon buckets.

If it's cold at night I have a [12V electric blanket](] and/or a 12V "car seat" warmer that I put under the mattress. I also have a propane Little Buddy heater which I have not yet used.

My main luxury item is an Alpicool C15 refrigerator powered by two 35AH "house batteries" (in parallel) which are charged using a Battery Doctor isolator. The Battery Doctor is run by my alternator when I drive-it only starts charging the house batteries after my van battery is full. The fridge uses 5.8AH per day. I used a cooler for a year, but the drawbacks are constantly buying or procuring ice (like from soda fountains), and food spoilage from it getting waterlogged, plus having to drain it frequently.

For hot meals, I use a 12 volt "lunchbox cooker" (works similar to a crock pot) which is powered in my cigarette lighter while I drive (or I can run it with the house batteries through a 12v splitter - the Alpicool is plugged into the other side. I also have a propane camping stove which I have never used.

I have a USB mini fan to run at night, or I can run my small regular fan through the 300W power inventor where I can also charge my laptop and/or phone (I usually charge the phone in the cigarette lighter).

I don't make any money if you buy from any of these links, but I only used them for illustrative purposes - I encourage you to shop around on Craigslist, eBay, Amazon, Walmart, check yard sales, etc. find the best priced similar item that works best for you. You don't have to get everything all at once - I didn't. But if you can get a basic minivan or van (seats removed), a mattress (or sleeping bag even) on a frame, and some jugs of water, it's a start.

Happy Birthday

My favorite birthday was my 16th when my mom got my friends and I a party bus. We had so much fun and it's something that we all remember to this day.

If a $10.97 Prime item works then [this] ( or [this] ( if it really needs to be under $10.

As long as your pad is insulated you should be ok. I would recommend getting a car reflective shield to help out and you should be fine. But nothing beats a underquilt. Max Reflector Jumbo Accordion Shade

u/vxcosmicowl · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hello beauty! She looks like a Charles to me lmao

You'll want to get a sun visor for when you leave the car so the seats don't burn your butt? I recommend one like this because it's quirky and cool

And you'll want to protect that ragtop

You'll probably want to have a blanket and umbrella in the trunk (for breakdowns/rain/cold) Keep some sunscreen in there too and wear it even on cold days!

u/0r10z · 2 pointsr/teslamotors

I posted a link for the mattress I use above, the shades are like these:

And... I just impulse bought one.

u/aimg · 2 pointsr/teslamotors

If possible, can you please help me ask him where he got his sunshade? I see this one on Amazon, but I'd like one that fits a bit better on the TM3. Thanks!

u/SkiDude · 2 pointsr/rav4club

I've had one like this for a few years. Folds up super small too.

u/8bitesq · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Happy Almost Halloween!! Less than a week to go.

I need this sun shade. My love of Star Wars knows no bounds and this would be absolutely perfect.

u/Birabending · 2 pointsr/Advice

I don't doubt that your aunt is getting headaches, but they aren't caused by the Wi-Fi. Multiple studies and the World Health Organization reports show that people really can't tell when devices are on or off. So either they're psychosomatic or caused by something else. But rather than confront her directly and make her feel defensive, you might do what the other redditor suggested above and black out the lights or approach her and say something like "I'm concerned about your headaches, but according to medical studies there's likely another reason for it and I want you to find the actual cause and be happy and healthy. You might have had these before but since getting the Wi-Fi package just became more acutely aware of them". Then maybe suggest she up her intake of water and add an electrolyte powder because hydration and vitamins are the easiest place to start. Maybe suggest she start logging her food and sleep and see if there's a pattern. Even if this is all in her head, it doesn't mean it's not real. The brain is a powerful little thing and the fact that placebos work shows we can consciously and unconsciously control a lot. Your approach will depend on your aunt's personality and you know her best. If that doesn't work, get one of those car sunshades that come in two sections and put one side in front of the router and make up a story that it's a Wi-Fi filter or something and tell her it still allows the signal to get through for devices but filters out the frequency that affects humans.

The sunshade I'm talking about: Car Windshield Sun Shade - Blocks UV Rays Sun Visor Protector, Sunshade To Keep Your Vehicle Cool And Damage Free,Easy To Use, Fits Windshields of Various Sizes (Classic 59 x 27.55 inches)

Link to an article that explains the studies showing Wi-Fi headaches aren't really a thing that you can show her as a source for scientific basis if she's open to facts and stuff:

I have two things this because everyone needs new shot glasses and this because star wars is super awesome

u/HeCallsMePrecious · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Yes, I'm in Texas so understand your pain!

I came early to park in the shade, and keep a shade like this to keep it cool inside and hide me a bit from those who may walk by. Keep a blanket in the back seat and lay seats down if possible. Keep a brush and makeup if needed to tidy up afterward, and don't forget to set an alarm! Sometimes I kept my car running or cracked the windows to cool things off. I did not have issues with nosy people, but our parking lot is large with people coming and going constantly.

u/TelaTheSpy · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Thats the VW OEM one. I have it, it's okay. Edges are getting a little ratty after 3 years of use. It does a good job with heat. Honestly good tint will help you more in that department.

Covercraft is another popular one. Shop around, but this is the product:

One thing to know about modern windshields is that they protect from UVA and UVB rays, your side windows generally do not by default.

Folding Ultimate Windshield Sunshade for Tesla Model 3 2018 2019 Custom Fit Sun Shade

u/eric987235 · 2 pointsr/teslamotors

I bought these for long rides on sunny days. Much cheaper than what Tesla sells.

u/EnterPlayerTwo · 1 pointr/pics
u/RagnarRocks · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

I bought this one on amazon for about $80: It was an improvement, but it does trap a bit of heat.

I figured stopping infrared from getting in would be more optimal since there's a lot of glass in the Model 3, so I had Llumar Air80 installed on the windows, roof, back & windshield. While pricey it was a significant improvement over the sun shade because it cut down heat from the windows and the windshield as well as allows better visibility out the back glass. I still feel a bit of heat from the roof when I turn my head but it's hardly noticeable compared to the inferno with no tint or sun shade.

I haven't been compelled to re-install the sun shade now that I have tint, but it would probably improve comfort even more.

u/bdbx18 · 1 pointr/teslamotors

I decided I've had it with my old recycled sunshade from other cars and the 3's windshield is quite big so they keep falling off. So I bought this and it's a perfect fit.

u/ediboyy · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

I got this one for my MK7 it's legit as fuck. even comes with a little case thing I put it in to store it.

u/darthmiso · 1 pointr/teslamotors

I got the $40 HeatShield and it fits perfectly. It's a little unwieldy (rolls into a tube), but I think they all are. The ones from the auto parts store that flip into a small circle don't fit right at all.

u/Craig_in_PA · 1 pointr/teslamotors

i'm not aware of a custom size one for M3, but this one works pretty good


u/WangusRex · 1 pointr/FordFocus

I'm sure there is a better fitting one out there but I've been using this for the past month without any hassles once you get the hang of the putting it back in the bag twist. It bends and conforms to the windshield just fine for me. Obviously in the image that car has no rear view mirror so its not gonna look so smooth.

Partly commenting just to see if anyone has a much much better suggestion that really does fit.

u/KevlarYarmulke · 1 pointr/StarWars
u/NachosReady · 1 pointr/teslamotors

This one. Make sure you get size XXL.

A1 Shades Windshield Sun Shades...

u/totally_italian · 1 pointr/funny

All it needs is this

u/WakiWikiWonk · 1 pointr/XVcrosstrek

What he said. Ignore those who say that any old sunshade will be fine. Yes, they work and are better than nothing, but this one custom made for your car is way better.

Combine it with a pair of these and the interior stays cool even on on the hottest days

Make sure you get the one for your model and year.

u/dwthomas00 · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

I bought the SUMK set, top fits great, back comes down a little low in the rear window for my preference:

OK then, how about a gift certificate for car wash/detailing? New floor mats? A sunshade? I have this one:

A fancy new LED rechargeable flashlight?

u/RoboNinjaPirate · 1 pointr/pics

For what it's worth, I got this Sunscreen for the windshield for christmas.

u/jonnygozy · 1 pointr/TeslaLounge

I’ve got one from AutoHeatShield for my Model 3 that I’ve been happy with. It was around $55 I think on Amazon. I assume they sell them for the S as well. It folds up instead of rolling, and fits the windshield really well.

u/DriverFL · 1 pointr/Honda

Just got it this week after an accident in my 1994 Acura Legend.

First Honda for me, and first car made in the 21st century (previously also had a 2008 Chevy Cavalier).

Wanted to share with you all and ask about best (frugal) accessories to keep this car tip top for years to come. So far I've gotten:

  • Elite Seat Shield- I play a lot of basketball and go the the gym regularly, so want to avoid damaging the seat.

  • Armor All Rubber Mats- for everyday use and especially for ease of cleaning when I bring sand in from the beach

  • Shade Sox in lieu of tinting until I can save a little money to afford it

  • Jumo Windshield Shade- to keep the car cooler and protect the interior parked in the bright Florida sun.

    I also plan to get

  • Ultra Gauge for real-time MPG monitoring

    Any other basic recommendations. I'm also open to learning how to properly and regularly wash and wax the car to retain the paint and re-sale value down the road, and have read a few threads on that, such as this Wiki post here.

    Any other good recommended (easy for the beginner) resources you can suggest. This is the first time I've spent more than $1k on a car (~$7500), and want to protect and preserve the investment.

    Thanks /r/Honda.

That would pair very nicely with this.

Funny story, my dad actually bought this one in the 80s and we have pictures of him using it in his MK 3 Supra. But he recently got this and it works pretty well.
