I bought one of those circular sunshades yesterday from the local auto store. My black on black Abarth gets HOT with the windows and top up. Anyway, I got the smallest I could and it is huge and fits horribly. Does anyone have a recommendation for something that fits a bit better? I've tried searching on Amazon and there are two or three designed specifically for our cars but they are around $40. That seems a bit pricey for a sunshade.

Madness Autoworks sells one for around $30 that fits the car perfectly. I bought it two weeks ago.

Thanks Prosecco. I actually saw your other post in a similar thread. Quick question though. Did you get the one with or without the sensor? I have an Abarth also but for the life of me, have no clue what this sensor thing is they're talking about.

I got it at Advance auto and I cut it into two circles and trimmed off the edges.

It doesn't fit perfectly, but it is easy to stow under the front seats.

I bought a sunshade from WeatherTech. It fits like a glove on the inside of the windshield and folds up fairly well, not a small as the ones with the springs in the edge, but the coverage is better, complete.

There is a sensor just to the left (looking at the windshield from the front of the car) of the rear view mirror, about 2 inches square, which can detect when it's raining and turn the wipers on as appropriate.

Because it's an extra 'box' attached to the windshield, there needs to be a cutout around the sun screen so it will fit.

I never noticed that. Thanks! I was wondering how it knew when to turn on the wipers.
