Summer has arrived here in Chicago (98 today) and it is time to consider a sun shade for the windshield. I'd like to reopen this thread and see what folks have bought. The sunshade is the best option as I am not planning on tinting the windshield. The custom fit style is preferred.
There are versions that mention a black (velvet?) backing for winter usage. Sounds like that might be presented as a solar powered defroster in the winter which is appealing because in six months I will be chipping ice. Does it work? Not expecting the Arizonans, Floridians, Californians or Texans to chime in on this!
Aside from custom fit, what do the higher priced sunshades offer (i.e. WeatherTech)?
What mounting options do you seen? The last one I had was generic, did not fit well and simply used the visors. I am looking for better.
