I hasten to add that parking in the sun at all is only an extreme-case-scenario event. But the combination of tints and windscreen shade does as much as one can ask for really...

Of course; the sunshade is merely a backup plan in case of emergency.

tints may help, but the interior still gets hot as fuck, and even though the millenia has 20% tint, and higher quality tint, I won't be taking any chances



No matter what the tint is if you dont do the windshield, which is the most inclined glass in the car, inside will get hot. Even 100% tint all around will heat more than UV film in just windshield.. Why does xedos never get hot even under extreme sun? biggrin.gif

I may get some window tint...but it's tough finding a good shop that wont do a sloppy ass job laying down the window film! I'd want something fairly light, with minal metallics in the film...the dark, dark tint looks like baboon ass.

Since you said tire shine, that meguiars aerosol spray you guys mentioned before is excellent. Easy to apply, long lasting..

I told you so.

Avoid the foaming and spray bottle. One makes the tires orange, the other just goes everywhere.

I'm using the gel at the moment but it has to be physically wiped on, and as a result blackens towels like there's no tomorrow, plus is more effort needed. I had a better result with the spray bottle, one just has to wipe any mess off.

I ordered me the Zaino Leather in a bottle and Leather Cleaner kit. I wasn't impressed with this stuff one bit. I'm sticking with Lexol...since it works well for me.

The Lexol stuff is only decent...it doesn't even smell as great as everyone claims either. I'm sticking to Lexol since it seems to work the best.
