Search e-bay and amazon for a company named intro-tech, they make custom fit shades and car dealers sell them. They run around $35 and are pretty durable.

I'm seeing conflicting info about the Intro-Tech sun shade for the 2015 Mazda 3. Amazon only has Covercraft brand for this car. Autosportcatalog.com says the product is not available for the 2015 Mazda 3. But Autoanything and CARiD both show it available.

What's wrong with the OEM sun shade? Bought mine from dealer for $8 and it does a great job lol.
How did you get yours for so cheap? :surprise: I thought they were about $40+ for the oem ones.

For $8 you can go to Costco and get a jumbo sunshade. It also comes with two side window screens. Works really well and it's a great fit! Picked one up last weekend.

Yeah..what he said...$8........where ?
YES WHERE!?
That's what I thought too since I was looking at Mazda's accessories website (although it's US based and I'm from Canada) and it was listed as $60 or something. I was prepared to pay it at my Mazda dealer where I bought my car and it rang up for $8. I actually said to the guy "Wow, so cheap!" and he said "I can charge you more if you want." I'll take pictures and post it later. My car has been bearably cool during the hottest days last year.

Oh that kind of sun shade. Thought it was the custom fitted ones that you got for $8 lol The custom fitted ones fit the windshield perfectly, it's the stiffer and more sturdy one and folds up but it's around $50'ish.

Yeah, no lol. Those cost more of course but that's why I said what's wrong with the one for $8? Works and does what it needs to do. Used it practically every day for 9 months straight. It's been folded and tossed around in the car often and it's still going strong. The OEM fitted ones for the 3 is $60 on the US Mazda accessories website. I'm not sure if Mazda Canada even sells them but I didn't bother asking. For $50-60, you can buy many of the ones I bought that would last you a life time.

Just ordered the Inter-Tech Ultimate for my sGT Hatchback. It was about $55 with sales tax. With the black leather interior and the Infotainment screen sticking up, I wanted the best protection, and I liked the folding vs rolling of the cheaper version. Also comes with a driver's door screen that looks like it will be very useful when I'm driving near sunset with the sun to my left.
