Default Windesa German Sunshade Blinds for 2013 JSW

Just got my first TDI about a month ago, really enjoying it so far. I'm in So. Cal, so we get a pretty good amount of sunshine here and somewhere in the threads I saw a mention of these sunshade blinds.

I took the plunge and really like them. They took very little time to install, can be removed easily and does knock down the sun heat. They also do make the car look a bit more sleek, almost like I tinted the windows.

Here's the link to the JSW version from their site. They're also available on Ebay from the same company but the price was slightly different.

I was pleasantly surprised how fast I got them, they arrived in a few business days from Germany via some kind of expedited carrier that was delivered by Fedex here.

Installation was easy. A few of the windows have small clips that fit in easily, the the screen goes in. Just reverse to remove. A couple of the windows don't use any clips, the frame of the screen is enough tension. They all fit easily and well. Picture-laden instructions do make it easy. The only minor quibble is the hatchback window's frame is just a tiny bit too small but it's not really very noticeable.

Cost was 142 Euros + 35 Euros for shipping which is about $233.00 USD. (August 2013) - FYI, they drop the VAT tax if shipping to the US.

Any pics on your car? I had a similar thing in my Volvo XC90 and they were nice, but not nearly as pricey......

I've had my blinds for about a year now in my JSW and they are still doing the job and looking good. Well worth the coin in my book and they do a fine job of reducing the need for tint. Here in NC there is an extra 15 dollar fee during our yearly inspection if you have tint so this is my way around that.

+1 for these and similar experience. I don't use the rear window one because it's hard to see. I have legal limit tint for WI so this allows me to feel better about having darker windows. They rear side panels stay in up to 85MPH with the windows down. I have not had need to test higher speeds.

I agree. I have them too. My favorite feature is related to your statement. I often open a rear window for ventilation when driving around town (when it is not so hot that AC is required). The sun shades cut way down on the turbulence, wind, and the buffeting while letting in fresh air. They are easily removable, but mine have never been removed since they were installed a year or two ago. No complaints about them at all.

Have Fun!

+100 on these pop in shades. With the way the JSW trim around the windows is recessed, it's almost as if it were designed for shades like this. I was also amazed at how quickly my order arrived from Germany. Less than 5 days, and that even included a weekend.

Would love to see some pics of it with the windows rolled up and down. Just upgraded from a '10 to a '13 and need to tint the windows but this looks like a viable option

Most of the time, the sunshades will appear like regular black tint from the outside unless one is really close. Here is what it looks like at closer distances and from the inside looking out on a bright day.

Is it true that we don't have to pay the VAT if we buy from the US? Did they credit your card after the purchase?

No VAT if they're shipping to the US. As you go through checkout the VAT will disappear as you get to the end.
