The only downside is having to drill your parcel shelf?! So a second hand shelf may be in order?

It looks really cool installed...

As for drilling the shelf... well the holes are tiny and you can just brush the carpet over them.

Looks like a fiddly thing to me, the sort of thing that I'd end up ripping out in frustration at some stage when it got in the way. In addition, I don't see much use for it. I have a reflective sun shade that I put up against the windscreen when I have to leave my car in the sun and that works wonders. It's more effective because:

(a) there's more heat gain from the windscreen than the rear window;

(b) it prevents sun damage to the dashboard;

(c) it prevents the steering wheel getting too hot;

(d) it has a reflective surface.

I reckon that tinting the rear window is a better bet.

I defo give it the thumbs up but I have to say it does make a bloody rattle. Anyone else found this[?]

I think it stops the green house effect - you look at any golf without tints and it just seems so open/see-through. The blind for me is a very cheap and subtle alternative - if I could afford a low level tint that was going to look OEM I would choose that over the blind.
