Window Shade: Heatshield

4150 Views 15 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  p7wang
got my new heatshield today and put it in the Bolt. I had one on my Outback and was very happy. The heat shield for the bolt is much less bulky than the Outback due to a narrower windshield, but it is a bit taller. It fits like a glove and has the cutout for either the LT or the Premier rear view mirror/sensor. Based on the material they use, I "don't" expect this thing to sag when hot like the OEM version.

This combined with my new Xpel ceramic tint should keep my baby cooler in the dog days of summer.

How do you like your ceramic tint? Did you notice any affect on interior temperature? What % of tint did you have applied? I've been thinking of getting tinting on mine. At the shop where I inquired, one of the staff even had tinting on the windshield of his truck and said it didn't interfere with nighttime driving.
I love the ceramic tint! I got 35%. Preconditioning the car is awesome now. With the tint and heatshield my interior feels 25 degrees cooler than ambient. I got Xpel IR35 tint.
Did you get tinting on the windshield? I was thinking of getting a higher % on the passenger windows (not really dark, just more) and something less (25-40%) on the windshield, front side and hatchback windows.
