anyone got sunshades in the rear of their cars?

like the ones sold by palm automaotive/ vanstyle
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-3-Series-4...item2a0297ccc2

They supposedly just clip on??
Wondering if they are any good or should i go for tints?
Getting fed up with the stupid mothercare stick on rubbish...

We had a car with factory tints before and we didnt particularly like it at night when parking etc

They look quite good and act like a tint.

Might get myself a set for the little one who always gets blinded in the back of my car, on the odd day we have sun.

Ermmmm, sticking the visor over the window/door...looks awkward and very tacky to me and what if it rains, it'll get wet through and dirty within minutes.

These ones l are much better, clip in via the inside, fill the windows completely as they are tailor made to your individual car and can be easily removed.

Spot on, might get me a set.

BMW did these for the E46 and they work very well.

I have a set (6 piece) on my E91, the shades are secured by the clips (a mixture of plastic and metal clips fixed onto the internal plastic window surrounds. The shapes are custom fit and has a "factory look", and you can take them off/on within seconds.

Quite effective and not as aggressive looking as the dark tints imho.

My only problem with these is that the rear window blind is split in to two pieces and therefore has a spine running vertically down the back screen. Looking on the BMW website the official one is one big screen and comes in three pieces for the E90 and website says 89, just a tenner more than these.

Might go to dealers and see how they look and fit in the flesh.

Yes, the rear screen is a covered by 2 pieces, however I do not find the spine obtrusive or impairing the rear view, perhaps because it's rather dark (particular at night with the anti dazzle function on) and I use the rear luggage net / partition, I am sure the BMW official one fits perfectly but didn't manage to track down a set at the time.
