Hi all - did some searching and came up empty. Looking to see if Ford or an aftermarket company offers custom-fit sun shades for the rear windows on the Focus. If you've never heard of this, I was used to them in my prior VW purchases. They were custom fit to the rear two side windows and back glass - kept the sun off my daughter but allowed us to avoid completely tinting the windows which we're not crazy about (just personal preference).

Here are the ones I had on my VW Golf. Had them on the back two windows and the rear glass - great OEM fit and quality. Any ideas? Thanks! [cheers]

Great find! Might have to look into those if they're not too cost prohibitive (look to be about $100 for the rear two windows).

To answer the question on tint, we just don't care for the look of tint, especially on a lighter colored car (we have ingot silver). Just personal preference. Additionally, like the ability to pull the window shades out when we don't need them for better visibility.

Ah this thing looks pretty interesting. I've been debating whether to tint my windows, or just deal with the sun. (I believe NY law is 70%+ light transmitted- absolute. Haven't decided whether to just tint or find another alternative). I've seen some sun shades where you just "stick" it to the window, but these seem to be a better option with custom fit.

I think the amazon link was only for the rear windows, but i found the complete set on ebay: for Groovy

Has anyone tried these yet? I'm not too crazy about sticking the clips to the door/leather...and was wondering how these hold up with the window open/semi open.

Interesting, but I am not sure what happens when you need to roll down the windows. I like a good quality ceramic tint because it rejects heat. I also like having tint on the front side windows to filter headlights in the side views at night and blocking UV during the day.
