Would anyone be interested in pooling resources to get a discounted price? Back when part of the AcuraZine website, we pulled together for a group discount. I think we got them down to $26 or $27 per shield.
If definately helps, but the dash and steering wheel still tend to get very hot. Really, you need tint and a reflector. I can barely touch my steering wheel it's so hot, and that's with 25% tint all around. I'll take some temps today with my infrared thermometer. Should be interesting.Does window tinting do much for the heat when you first get in? I'm thinking about doing that instead.
Yes, that is a big plus. The OME screen is not nearly as compact, but since I rarely have backseat passengers, it's not a problem. When I do, I still have an old double disc thin mylar screen in my trunk and that fits neatly in the passenger seat pocket. All in all, I think the OME screen is great, allows little if any sunlight to get through, which no other screen I've had can come close to.I just use the "disc shades" you can get at walmart for less than $10. They might not do as good a job as being tailor made to cover every inch of glass, but I love that they fold into a compact size that can be stored in the passenger seat pocket.
Those are without a reflector. With a reflector they should be 30-40 degrees cooler. Sometimes I do open the vent on my sunroof, but it isn't often. I can't always run out to my car at work if it starts raining and I worry about my leather interior.Are those numbers with a windshield screen? I think that would cut it dramatically. What I do, in addition to the tint and windshield screen, is open the back vent on the moonroof and open the slider cover about and inch to give the hottest air along the roofline a way out.
Ah yes, rain... that wet stuff... I guess that still happens in some parts of the country. :001_huh:Those are without a reflector. With a reflector they should be 30-40 degrees cooler.

Yeah, Like I mentioned, my "ceramic" tint is much lighter than most (hardly darker than OME), yet block a ton of heat! When I have the window down and feel the heat on my arm, then put the window up, a huge difference!I just bought the Mazda one. The car sits in the parking lot at the train station a lot, and my wife doesn't like to crack the sunroof because of dust in the near constant wind.
I've got to talk her into marsdog's tint job!
PS - Love the OEM heatshield
