Good point/tip - as I (from your earlier postings) also leave the small gap at front to hold it when rolling the screen back.

I am guessing that most of the trouibles with the destruction of the OEM shade is extreme heat over a long period of time,or Have others had the same issue in more moderate climates.

I think the Germans don't have any concept of the pressure some of these vehicles get in either extreme heat or cold. Europe is rather moderate all the way around.

Got two babies sitting in the backseat rear facing (I have no idea how to get A/C cold air to them any ideas?) . Summer is here and those babies are gonna fry! I hesitated buying this Heatshield, but we put it in yesterday with 93*F and my god, it actually works! It's amazing how much cooler it is when the car has been parked in the sun. The A/C cools the cabin much faster and isn't fighting for long. I didn't want to admit it, but it's a huge difference.

Like Don said, I want my panoramic sunroof, and I will use it for the 9 months of the year and enjoy it. The babies love watching trees pass by, and I love seeing their face with the extra light in the cabin.

When the temperature stays above 90*F I will keep this Heatshield in place and give my children a fighting chance of not sweating like a prostitute in church. I'm still hesitant to get the windshield piece, as the the wife won't be interested in the process of putting it up and putting it away.

I do love my ceramic tint, and my aspherical mirrors, and my Polar FIS MFD, and my euroswitch, This has gotta be one of the best purchases for comfort ever.

The windshield sunshade makes a HUGE difference for sure... you aren't fighting a super heated dash along with everything else.

Is that using a regular windshield sunshade? I was thinking the same thing, as I have a two-piece windshield sunshade (from Walmart) that is just about the same width as the opening of the pano-sunroof. I wonder - could I just carefully tuck the two pieces between the headliner and sunroof? They would be easy to remove, and not too difficult to install. And they should be thin enough that I could still close the OEM sunshade. For my windshield, I can just buy another sunshade.

Ordered my windshield sunshade from HeatShield for my 2014 JSW. The sunroof shade looked like a conventional sunroof, not for the pano.

I received my Heatshield Sunshade for my 2014 JSW - I'm really impressed with the material and construction quality, especially compared to the standard sunshades you see at most retailers. However, mine seems to be a bit big. I checked the part number - 1307 - and it seems to be correct, but the sunshade does have to sag a big in the center to fit, as it's too long (referring to the distance between the base of the dash, and the top of the headliner). Does anyone know if this is designed to be that way, or should the entire sunshade be in direct contact with the windshield?

i have the heatshield windshield shade in my ‘14 JSW. i find the if i push the shade downward, with a little side to side wiggle, the shade slips between the windshield and the forward edge of the dash. once it slips down, the top edge of the shade just barely touches the edge of the headliner. if you don’t do this, and you look at the shade from outside car, you can see the forward edge of the dash exposed to the brutal sun, even with the shade up. pushing it down covers that edge, to me, that’s a good thing.

Thank you for your reply. I'll definitely try this tomorrow, as I just tried the sunshade out this evening when I got home from work. Maybe the fit is just extra snug.

Are you able to fit the sunshade around your rearview mirror?

yep. during the side to side wiggle, you can slip past the mirror with just a little bending of the corners.

Okay, so I tried that this morning. Even with wedging the sunshade between the base of the dash and the windshield, it still rests beyond the point where the top of the windshield meets the headliner. In other words, that area where the headliner meets the windshield is still exposed to the sun. Is that the case with yours? Would you mind offering me a measurement of your sunshade? Maybe from top to bottom. Iím wondering if my pattern was cut too big.
