The mission for Sunshades for BMW i3 is to make the best-fitting, most durable, and effective sunshades available. These sunshades use a reflective, strong (but flexible) material that is ideal for use as a sunshade. And, Sunshades for BMW i3 consistently perform thorough quality control testing to ensure effectiveness.
25°F cooler on average. The reflective material in the Sunshades are responsible for dramatic temperature differences in cars parked in the sun. Temperature differences of as much as 40˚F (25˚C) have been measured but you should experience a baseline average temperature reduction of about 25˚F (11˚C).
Fits like a glove. Sunshades are all about accuracy. It’s computer-driven cutting machines are capable of producing a precise fit for the BMW i3. These sunshades are also designed to slightly overlap the windshield frame to maximize coverage and/or to allow the sun visors to have more material to hold on to.
Strong and Simple. These sunshades are stiff enough to be supported by the sun visors alone, but also flexible enough to be bent around the rearview mirror. Unroll the sunshade across dash, lift it into place, and drop your sun visors. For storage, roll up and secure with a special VELCRO® strap.
For the BMW i3 custom sunshades, the design approach is focused on accuracy, precision, and fitment. Computer-driven cutting machines are utilized to produce precise, consistent fitment for every BMW i3 owner that orders.
The sunshades are simple to use but they are just as easy to store. Less than 3/16” thick yet stiff enough to stand on their own, they lay flat or roll up for easy storage. It rolls up with a VELCRO® tie when not in use.
These sunshades are made of a special gold or silver metalized polyester film, laminated to a thin layer of closed-cell foam, with a black polyester film back (for blackout extra cooling effect) sewn around the edge with a black cloth binding.
The front windshield sunshade is designed to be supported with sun visors alone. The side and rear window units have 4-5 suction cups for optimal fitment. Note: Sunshades are (depending on placement/install) designed to overlap the windshield frame in places to maximize coverage and to allow the sun visors to have more material to hold onto.
What materials are used to make Sunshades?
The sunshades are made of a special gold/silver metalized polyester film, laminated to a thin layer of closed-cell foam, with a black polyester film back (for blackout extra cooling effect) sewn around the edge with a black cloth binding. This laminate is sturdy, light, and reflective, and it has excellent insulating properties to protect your interior and keep your car cool.
How are Sunshades made?
The sunshades are custom cut using the latest in computer-aided cutting technology. Then, they are sewn around the edge with a black cloth binding.
In order to fit properly, these sunshades must be bent around my rearview mirror. Will this harm my sunshades?
Bending your sunshades to fit around your mirror is all a part of the simple installation process. The sunshades are designed to fit around the rearview mirror in order to block out as much sunlight as possible.
Which side faces out?
The shiny, reflective side faces out. In other words, the silver or gold side.
Does the sunshade block UV rays?
The sunshades material is designed to reflect the sun away and it does keep harmful UV rays from penetrating and damaging the dashboard, electronics, upholstery and can keep your BMW i3 up to 40 percent cooler.
How should I store my sunshades?
We suggest you store the sunshades rolled up—NOT folded. Folding the Sunshade could compromise the integrity of the material and may cause premature wear.
Do you have patterns for side and rear window sunshades?
Yes, we have side and rear window patterns for the BMW i3. Simply select from the pull-down menu (above the orange "Add to Cart" button) which specific sunshade you'd like to order or simply choose the complete sunshade set.
What is the recommended way to get the suction cups on sunshades to best affix to the windows?
It can help to install the suction cups with the doors closed or to hold the door while installing to make a solid connection. We've heard of customers wetting the suction cups for better suction. Also, try to press directly behind the suction cup in order to get a firm grip/suction on the window too.
My sunshades are curled up a bit, is there a way to get them to flatten a bit?
You might want to roll the sunshades in the opposite direction if they have been rolled up for a while. This will help to flatten out the sunshades and make them easier to install and fit better against the windows. Storing them rolled backward every once in a while will also help with this.
I'd like to order a unique combination of sunshades not offered in the pull-down menu above, what do I do?
Simply select the individual sunshade option you'd like and select the "Add to Cart" button. Next, you'll be able to view your shopping cart to confirm your selection. Then, simply go back to shopping on the same HeatShield product page and select the other(s) and "Add to Cart" - now you'll see the combination you desire waiting in your shopping cart. Proceed and follow the prompts to place your order.

With the shiny, reflective side facing out, roll Sunshade across the dash. Make sure the Sunshade is centered in the windshield and placed as far down where the glass meets the dash. Tuck Sunshade behind the rearview mirror, if mounted on the windshield.
Lift Sunshades against the glass. Adjust Sunshades in the windshield, may overlap slightly with side windshield frame (A-pillars) and headliners. Lower sun visors for support.
Set up the side window Sunshades (if you ordered for your side windows) by placing suction cups firmly on each window.
Place rear window Sunshade (if you ordered for your rear window) by sliding it up and pressing suction cups firmly on the window.
When not in use, for product storage, store your Sunshades like this: lift sunvisors and pull Sunshades down. Roll up from end to end. For side and rear sunshades, detach suction cups and roll up from end to end. Wrap the attached VELCRO® strap.
