Looks nice. Mine should be delivered tomorrow.
Forecast is for highs of ~95 both days in Dallas, so I'll try to remember to bring a thermometer to check temps Thursday without it and Friday with it after roasting all day in the sun.

I was just there several days ago in Dallas to visit family... it's uhh... quite hot XD up until probably 10 PM it starts to taper off, but nothing to the level of comfortableness like up here in the northeast :D - Post some thoughts on the product after you've receive/used it, tempting to get one...

Got mine just over 2 weeks ago and it's been put to good use. I sprung for the $59.99 version and it works great! 23 days in a row above 105-degrees with abundant sunshine! (95-degrees??? Yeah, I remember winter. LOL) Also love the storage bag so I can keep it neatly in the trunk when not in use. It's perfectly cut to fit the windshield and is flat when in place, which is great!

Glad to hear the reflector is working so well Alfa in Vegas! Dont forget you can flip it in the winter to keep your Giulia warm!

Nice! What was the temp up there Pcbrew? As stated above you could take the cover up there and flip it over to keep warm!

Madness,

Why do your pictures appear to illustrate this San Jose original (these guys invented windshield heatshields, at the request of Nasa Ames to reduce instrument damage in custom helicopters):

https://www.heatshieldstore.com/sun_shades_for/alfa_romeo/giulia/2017

While your product listing and Alfa in Las Vegas both show a different product (folding versus roll-up)?

Both products may be good (I've always used "heatshield" brand) but have different pluses and minuses.

They offer both on their website. The folding like I bought...

And the roll up they show on their car....

Agreed Alfaholico! Theyre my favorite carbon piece we offer!

just picked up the regular version :)
The regular option still is a great reflector! I imagine if you it in your window during winter it would help a little! ;)

Hey there Lockem,

As Alfa in Vegas stated, we do offer both options! The folding reflector is made with better material and is more sturdy than the roll up reflector but are both still great options to cool your interior down !

Thanks for the clarification. I guess I was too lazy to try both of the links that you provided.

In my past experience (not the specific products that you are offering):

Folding has a tendency for the reflective material to crack at the folds after extended usage. They can be difficult to fold while sitting in the car. They don't conform to the windshield perfectly. The insulation material is more rigid so there is much less tendency to sag.

Rollup has a tendency to sag after extended usage. As the sagging gets bad some of the visor will be directly in sunlight (the visors are used to hold the unit in place) which may cause the visor to be damaged. Rollup when new will be a very close conforming fit to the windshield, providing really good protection. If you have extra obstructions like a dash cam you might prefer rollup because it can be coaxed around obstacles.

I have used the rollup type since 1983 and simply replace them when the sagging gets excessive.
