Thanks, advise taken. She won't be in the sun for long. It's there just on the weekends for like 2-3 hours max under the blazing sun. But will wax her soon.

Actually it does feel like a huge oven here. I feel for my lexus a lot when I leave her out in the sun. It's as if I left my wife(I'm not married yet) out to burn outside

What about a car cover to put over it when it is parked? Not sure if it would help...

I couldn't since no one else has a cover on their cars. Well yeah their cars are all ****ty anyways but I don't want to look like a show off. People might just start keying my car for that then.

That stinks.
They do make a tint that you can't see, llumar ceramic 70 or 80% It is clear with no smoke color to it, I am going to get it on my windshield when I get my car tinted. Just something to consider if tint is illegal where you are. I don't think they could see this tint. Now how good it works I don't know....

Good luck!

Thanks for the advise. Tints are banned here so I'm gonna have a hard time finding a shop who would fit it for me.

Anyways I got some good news , I finally got my own parking space with a shed . So now my car is safe from the scorching sun , but the downside is while it rains, stupid cats walk or run around the bonnet of my car I feel like killing those damn creatures.
