Default Rear Window Shade

I was wondering if anyone added rear door window shades and which one you got. I know the newer RX350s have them built into the door...

I tinted the rear windows an additional 30% but the sun still bothers my daughter.

I ended up getting Soltect Sunshade Side Windows and very pleased. They fit the window perfectly. I'm too OCD to get the standard rectangular window shades that only cover part of the window.

This is a rational solution as a complete swap of factory panels is likely to be costly, unless you were able the find a matching color scheme at a salvage yard. We have the factory shades in our 450h lux and they work well and are often used.

Neat, where do you buy those? Might be good for Texas summers when the car spends the day parked in the sun. Does it keep the car cooler?

I got them on ebay for 105. carid ID and amazon sells the same for 125.

I cant answer if it keeps the car cool or not. I have all the windows tinted in 30% ceramic to help block the heat.

I can still roll down the window partially while on driving but not on the highway.

Very cool. Thanks for sharing. What year is your RX350? Did you use the magnet or wedge mount? Also, do you ever use the shades for the front seats? I believe the front shades only cover 50% of the window. Thanks!

I have a 2016. I will use the front shades for the first time this coming weekend. I used 3 magnets for each rear shade so my wife can roll down the window when I let one rip.
