BMW Sunshade

Anyone know of a sunshade with good fitment and BMW logo on it for our F30? I had one for my Audi with the rings on it that was an authentic Audi accessory, now I need a BMW one but haven't seen one made by BMW.

Why not get one without the logo and save like $50? Any sunshade made by BMW will be marked up for the logo. Honestly if people are already seeing the car, I don't think seeing a sunshade in the car with the logo's going to do anything.

I have a rollup version of this shade and it's a hassle to use and store. I'll be ordering one of these soon.

Rollup ones are PITA to store. I got one of the ones you twist up into a flat circle. It's quicker to use and it doesn't take up the whole back seat like the roll up ones do.

As far as the logo goes, that's your preference. Around here, it screams, "I'm a douche." However, it's the even bigger douches that you have to worry about; they actually key up cars like that.

Though I am surprised that BMW doesn't make an OEM sunshade, considering they do have everything else.... from umbrellas to flashlights to coat-hangers...

I bought one of these yesterday. Black car + Texas summers means I need a quality shade, or I'll be suffering!

Personally i hate to advertise my car in such a way as to have the sunshade say BMW, or the license plate frame, or the personnalized plate, or anything extra beyond the number of logos the car came with.

If you dont know my car is a bmw, i dont need to point it out to you.
if you dont care about my car, i really have no interest in pointing out to you.
if you like my car, you already know what it is...
if you like my car, but you dont know what it is, i still dont care to inform you.

in short, i like my sunshade to only do one function, to block the sun.
not obnoxiously advertise my car

If you don't have an answer to my question, your response is of no use to me.
If your response is of no use to the topic, why say anything?
If I wanted your opinion on the topic, I would have asked for it.
You do not care to inform people of your car, but jump to the chance to voice your opinion when it is not wanted or needed.

in short I posted this thread to do one function, find information on a bmw sunshade.
not to hear what you think. but here is a smiley face

It's not about advertising the car it's obviously a BMW in the first place. He wants an authentic quality sunshade that will fit correctly not some cheap poorly made thing from ebay...

Go on BMW Accessories website and look for item "BMW UV Sunshade" item 82110399145. I bought it for my last generation coupe but it fits the F30 just fine. Good luck!

Actually he quite clearly states the BMW logo as a requirement, and goes further to give the example of his Audi one with logo.

For those requirements the older gen BMW UV sunshade may be your best bet, since none has been made for the F30 with the logo yet. Or, buy a custom fitted one from third party and stencil BMW onto it.
