    Purchased the intro-tech ultimate reflector from autoanything. Took 3 days from purchase to delivery. Overall I am very satisfied. The fit is great and probably has a 1/4 inch gap on the sides which is not a big deal. It comes with a free case and a side window shade as well. Hopefully it keeps the interior cool during the hot so. cal summer

    Lol crazy right? The higher cost is because they are custom fitted, and it really shows. You can get away with cutting a cheaper one to fit snug as well or just leave the generic one as is and not be bothered as i used to do. But the fitted ones are nice, I'll be doing this again for my next car for sure.

    Do you notice a big difference with the Broadway mirror?

    I definitely notice a huge difference, you can see everything including your blind spots as well as the back seat to keep an eye on any children you might have. The mirror seems to have some anti glare coating that helps with headlight glare behind you. The mirror does have a slight convex wide angle to it so it might get some getting used to, but I've had it on my previous cars so I'm used to it.

    Yea its a snug fit. Its adjustable clips that go over your existing mirror. Took like 30 seconds to put on. I recommend going with the 270mm, any larger might not clear your visors.

    I still like part of the thread title, "no more hot car". In the summer the car is gonna get hot inside no matter what you do. It's crazy, but I have got into a co-workers car after it setting in the sun all day with no tint or shade, and it wasn't any hotter than mine is with tinted windows AND a sunshade. I'm not convinced either one makes any difference.

    The sunshade for sure helps on the steering wheel. My previous car was a Scion tC with nothing on the windows and and windshield and during the summer days I couldnt grip the steering wheel until the A/C was running for a few minutes. I assume it helps protect the leather seats from the UV rays as well if your cars has em. YMMV but to me having something on there makes sense, we just happen to like the custom fit so we pay more, but even a $2 one should help even a little. Tints on the windows is arguable, I'm sure most just get it for the aesthetics
