Coupe - rear sunblind

I know there is a rear sunlind that is electrically controlled from the dash, but what I'm after is a manual sunblind - the type that is framed in a piece of pliable wire that can be stowed in a bag.

I had this type on my 1 series hatch and it was an ace alternative to having expensive tinting - I was wondering if anyone knows of a company that supplies these?

The only ones I've found have been on eBay and appear to be made up of two blinds with a center piece joining the two, this is not really what I'm after.

Please can anyone help?

Thanks

You could try here http://www.nm-motorsport.com/acatalo...and_Parts.html but i think it's the same, a two peice blind.

If you find any let me know as I'm after the same for my E90

The best will be the OE BMW manual roller blind, the fold up wire ones you refer to are for the side windows only in the E90/E92. (The tourer back window ones are fold up, but that's more like the 1 series hatch window)

It available as an accessory, along with fold up rear side window blinds.

I had the E90 versions in my last car they were brilliant at keeping the car cooler in summer - perfect quality & fit too being OE of course.

Nothings wrong with the leccy one - in fact its brilliant - except its a factory option only.

So if you haven't got it from new, your only option is the manual accessory.

The OME retro fit looks like a lot of work http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=42207
