Rear side sun shades...

Anyone know where I can get side window shades for the rear door of the R500? My wife has been bitching about the sun coming in from the window on the baby's face.

They dont cover the small section that lets the damn sun come in. I was wondering if anyone made a custom sized one for the entire window.

I have purchased and used a set of custom roller shades for my '01 S55. Link follows:

My Autoshades Product Details

Note that the roller part does stick to the window sill using double-sided tape (rather then being internal as are the OEM variety). Note that after they came "unstuck" one time, I ditched the OEM tape provided and replaced with more aggressive double-stick. No more issues (course I have not tried to remove them :-) ).

Overall I have been quite impressed with the quality/price tradeoff. To retrofit OEM was like 3 grand from the dealer - eeks.

Also note that as with any roller blind, if your kids play with them they may tear, bend, etc. etc.
