Default Rear Window Door Shades

I'm looking at getting an F Sport in the next couple of months and know that the F Sport doesn't come with the rear window shades on the door and was curious if anyone has added it to theirs and how difficult it is/would be.

Thanks

I think u'll have to change the door panels and some other stuff, over $1K each. I'd just get a darker tinted windows.

That's what I thought. I may have to special order my GS to get the heads up display so I may just see how much they'll charge to do that and then decide if it's worth it or not.

You may want to check on this, but I don't think you can order an F Sport with the rear shade - when I ordered my '13, the only way to get it was with the Luxury Package. Shades were not a standalone option. We'll see what's available on the 2015.

Good Luck!

I have them in my luxury...rear passengers play with them for a minute and then that's it. I wouldn't bother.

Like I said, just get a darker heat resistant tinted windows, it's cheaper than replacing the door panels.

you can try Laser Shades. It is a removable clip on (magnetic) shades.

I have them on mine from the Lux pkg. I normally leave them up mainly because NY tint laws are awful. (even at night) I try not to drive too much with passengers in the back as I don't trust my friends

I have no idea why carmakers do this. I wanted an F-sport, but I kind of wanted everything else as well. Take my money...
