My windshield sunshade from www.partscheap.com arrived today. It fits beautifully. It overlaps on the sides and top, fits well into the base of the windshield and has a very small gap behind the mirror. Well worth it.

Another vote for the HeatSheild. Fits perfectly and absolutely stops any light from coming through.

http://www.covercraft.com has one of their UVS100 shades custom fitted for the Mk3 FoFo. It's not cheap. I've bought theirs in the past and been very pleased. Haven't bought one for the FoFo. Need to do that one of these days.

I have on a previous car. Not worth it at all. Sucks balls driving at night if you go to dark. Which if you don't go dark enough, it's almost pointless. I would say dont waste the money

The one I have from them for my focus did not hold up too well, with the stitching starting to come apart on the second day, and it keeps too much of the curl when folded up/ rolled up and doesn't seem to fit the windshield properly at all. I was sorely disappointed, but it still somewhat worked if I worked at getting it to fit the windshield/ jamming it in the corners and the sun shades.

Tinting the windshield to 50% helps massively during the day, and is not too dark at night even with 30% on the remainder of the windows. I would rather have a slightly more rigid sunshade that doesn't curl up at the edges when put away.
