    There are several members in the B6 and B7 sections that has theses and they all seem to speak highly of them.

    I'm on the look out for a set for my B5.

    noticed these yesterday and i was very tempted.
    Last time i tinted a saloon car i was right stressed with limited access to rear window so this could be a good idea


    Edit.. just bought them as i found them on sale :sly:

    Ill get pics up when they arrive

    I have those shades on my Avant rear windows , they are a good alternative to tints. I couldn't get on with the split rear screen one though so I use the others & pull up the sunblind in the load cover.

    Pic below but doesn't show them very well..

    It may be the pic giving that impression, they don't appear grey in the flesh.

    Found another pic..

    I have the perfect fit blinds and I think they are a better option than tints as you can take them out when ever you want and half the price of tints.

    The split rear is not a problem to be honest, i thought i would have real issues with it but you get used to it.

    Yep, very easy to put in and take out, they come with clips to hold them in but I never needed to used them.

    I have a set, and had a set on my previous car. More than happy with them. Obviously they are not tints but they def shade the back of the car. Can drive with them in and widows open, so no bugs flying in etc Very easy to pop out if you don't want them in. They are black in colour, mesh and frame. I genuinely don't think you will be disappointed. The pics below may or may not help but it all helps you form an idea of what to expect

    I would look to get them on any car I own I think based on my experience. Don't even seem to fade over time?

    The blinds look good, but tinting is pretty much the same price. There are 1 or 2 tinkers around my way so they have to be competitive. £110 for the rear 3/4 of the car and £150 for all round tints.
