Looking for a good Sunshade

I DD my E92 M3 and just recently tinted my windows, but I would like even more protection since I park outside for work. Can anyone direct me to a Sun Shade for the front windowshield that fits the E92?

I have one from heatshield and it works quite well. Fitment is 9.5/10 - my only complaint is that it sags on one side slightly, but realistically it probably only affects the cooling by 1%. If it were slightly stiffer I would say 10/10 no questions asked.

I picked mine up from ECS Tuning. Not sure if it's OEM, but it works great, no complaints at all.

It's pricey at $64, and because it folds rather than rolls up, it is bulky to store. I just lay it along the passenger side of the center console tunnel. But it's custom cut, is firm and stays in place. It has multiple insulating layers so it does keep the heat out. It's probably very similar to the OEM one but without the gawdy BMW block logo.

The roll-up ones always seemed to me to get flimsy and not fit well. Then the binding starts to unravel and fall apart and you get black thread shavings all over your dash. Maybe I just had a super cheap roll-up one though.

OEM here. Stays in place and folds up nicely. Comes with a nice storage sleeve too.

I would highly recommend using the UV/heat repelling window tint for the windshield. It comes in a very light level of transparency and is ideal for your purpose.
