pros: PIMP, works like a charm!
cons: expesive when they break; everyone and their mother wants to see it work thus promoting wear and tear.
I just keep my rear window and rear passenger shades up all the time :). No reason to play with it, I can see enough of the road the way it is.
Mine rattles a little when it is down. I wouldn't get it again. However, I am happy with it.
I freaking love mine, and I didnt even notice I Had it until later in the day I got my car.


Definately "pimp"
I got a manual one on eBay for about $22 shipped. It called Euro Rear Shade. It looks nice and I leave it up all the time. Visibility is good day and night.
Very pimp. Nothng like putting it up when a tailgater approaches.
got window tint, not sure why people get the shade when you can tint the car for a fraction of that cost :dunno: looks much better imo
In New Jersey you can get a ticket for window tint if they want to get picky.IMO window shades are great,(without a ticket problem),even if the cost is pretty high.

Why would you want window tint in a 330i or any bimmer infact? Window tint is if you don't want to be seen. If your driving any bimmer or any other nice car you WANT to be seen. We got shades they're nice and reduce alot of glare and hardly noticeable in day driving but can reduce rear window visiblity at night unfortunatly. Fully auto shades are very nice feature to have. No problems with them at all yet.*knocks on wood*

Here you don't get a ticket for tinting the back window but its illegal, but people still do it, to tint the windshield.

buying it to be seen, whatever. Let's not get carried away and think of a car as a ego boost. Your self esteem should come from the person you are, not what you have period. Be impressed with me by the person I am, not what I own. Being a school teacher/coach is my passion and where I get my self satisfaction. I do love my car, but those that love me for my car??? seriously what a stranger thinks of me matters not, what my friends and family think of me will always.

Yeah vern, you tell him. If I didn't have my BMW, I'd feel so down in the dumps, I'd kill myself! We drive BMWs to feel good about ourselves and look down on the less fortunate ones. So that teacher should keep his squeky clean self contained self sufficient self esteem crap to himself.

To the world: Look at me!!! I have a BMW, you don't!!!! bwahahahahaa!!!!

Ah... whew. That felt so good.

Hey...don't be disrespecting the teacher.

No one has yet to mention whether the shades keep the car cooler in this Cali sunshine.
DITTO.

I got the shades because I personally don't like the way tint looks. Plus the terra interior looks so nice, it would be a shame to hide it behind tinted windows.
Folks I need manual sun shades for my rear screen and side windows for my E66 and possibly for the E60. I know I should have ordered them on the E60 but I was dumb. I need recommendations for aftermarket manual shades.

I remember a site with Euro in it which had great shades for rear screen but I can no longer find it!
