Windshield Shade/Visor

Looking for those big visors that you place in your windshield, when parked, that help keep the car cool. I've one from an earlier car, but it's far too large for the X1 and the factory made cutout for the rear view mirror is way too small.

The BMW webside, Accessories, doesn't seem to sell them - maybe I missed it?

Is there a third-party vendor that may have 'em for the X1?

Thanks! Vince.

I got windshield shade from Costco. It works great for $10. It also came with two side window shades too.

I just purchased one, along with a boat-load of other accessories and a couple parts, from Circle BMW in NJ. See http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...774&highlight=

I have a Heatshield for each of my cars and they have always fit great and worked nicely for years. They roll up good and the velcro strap keeps it together for easy storage and application.
