it does help reduce the inside temps

also keeps your interior from sun-fade/ dash cracking...

if you have a leather interior, highly recommended

i got the silver,foil-type one

Use it all the time here i the south. Just too hot without it. Always buy the custom shades that are exact fit, made in CA. Worth it.

I want one, it's said too much width can be illegal, reason being the newer sloped windshields are letting too much sunlight in causing overheat interior conditions for some(complaints)heard.... Passenger comfort compromised at times. Uh-HUH!!
