is that include shipping?? wow. Not fair our Rios don't have anything yet. I really need a front bra for my car. not even a week and already have tons of bugs and rock chips in the front bumper. even a small glass chip in the windshield. :crying:Good point with the folding thing. Myself, I prefer that a sunshade can fold neatly (accordion style) and be hidden away easily when not in use. The Walmart experiment sounds interesting (and super cheap... cool) - but fitting and folding it might be why I personally won't bother going that route.
I wonder if the Soul has a similar windshield? This one seems like a great looking alternative, but will it fit? Plus. I'm not crazy about the "soul" logo on my Rio - and it's pricey! Geez.
I'll take a trip to walmart, see what they got. I just plan on getting the windows tinted, but that at least 2 weeks away. What are the laws in Texas regarding window tint? (will most likely be moving to Austin within the year)I found one at Walmart that was $11.99 that is 2 pieces that twist into a very small, easy to store circle. It doesn't cover every square inch of the car windshield but it covers a good 95% and helps to reduce the heat. Plus I got a few little mesh tint things that stick to the side windows with suction cups. I live in Texas so I need all the heat reducing I can get. This set up has helped with temp when getting into the car. I've also noticed that opening the back hatch when you first get into the car helps to release a huge heat pocket in the back and helps to allow the ac to cool the car quicker.
usually your visors hold it in place, that's the way it works on mine, wouldn't want suctions cups, leaves ring marks on your windshield.
Texas Window Tint Law - WindowTint.com - I'm pretty sure this is still the limits... I have had 5% all the way around on previous cars and never had any problems, even when getting pulled over for something else. However, you'll find its all about which cop you get down here. Some are nice and some will try to search your whole vehicle for a tail light being out. I live in/near Austin and the heat is def an issue for the small cabin of the Rio5. I recommend good dark tint, cracking your windows just a bit & starting your car with the AC full blast about 5-10 min before you get in. I usually get in my car every day around 3pm after sitting in the sun all day and the inside temp is usually 120F. Also, there are plenty of places in Austin that will do below the legal limit on tint. Just in case you want to go that low, you will be able to still get it done professionally.I'll take a trip to walmart, see what they got.

That appears to be outdated as the limits apparently changed in 2009.
