    Default Anybody have the WeatherTech TechShade window shade?

    Been looking at it for my 2017 to protect my leather interior: http://www.weathertech.ca/en/mazda/2...da3/techshade/

    Anybody use one? Any thoughts? I can't find a whole lot of chatter about it online.

    Great idea but not for $69.95

    Use protector for the seats and find a cheaper version of the sun shade is my recommendation

    Weathertech is a lot cheaper that Mazda's. However, Mazda's is a lot flatter (sticks out less), looks, and is styled better. We each get to choose.

    I understand you want to protect your interior, but your tint will protect that if it's 20%, how many other Mazda 3's do you see with a window reflector? I have yet to see one, the wear on your leather from sitting on it will be greater than the sun... my mom has a Honda oddessy, no tint anywhere, and the leather is still the same colour from the day she bought it. My friend has a 2004 Mazda 3 with no tint and cloth seats and only a little bit of fading on the headrest, but that's it.

    Finding the EXACT windshield coverage is difficult
