OEM car shade pics and review

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I got this since I skipped out on the automatic shade and wanted to avoid having tint which can bubble over the long term and is not so easily removable. All three pieces were 270 or so total on ebay.

Comes with some sticky clips which you have to install onto your window trim, or for the rear, the windows themselves. The ones on the hard trim stick well, not so much on the soft trim.

+ easily removable
+ good fit
+ can still see adequately even in the dark
+ no center bar like in the OEM automatic rear shade
+ reasonably priced

- held in place by sticky clips, not very elegant
- dunno what would happen to side ones if opened window while driving fast, it would probably fly in wards

a lot of tint jobs if done correctly should not bubble and you should be able to get lifetime warranty from any reputable tint place. If you decide to go route of tinting that is.

Yah I'm sure tinting would be fine with the warranty and all I just don't like the idea of someone with a razor or what not near my car gluing stuff onto it.
Here it is on ebay, free shipping and no tax too, i think its from bmw of clevelands account.

I had issues on my E90 with tint scratching and rather not deal with tinting.
