  • C8 interior windshield sunshade

    Anyone been able to source a C8 interior windshield sunshade yet?
    I spoke to covercraft who does custom fitted ones and they said due to covid they have not been able to go out and get the measurements they need to design one yet.
    I hate just letting the sun blaze in the front windshield.

    I was thinking about that also. Question is, is there room behind the seats to store it when you are under way?

      A truck size foldable shade could be trimmed down to fit your C8. There are options...for the interem.

        .

        Yes as long it is the kind that folds into max of roughly 22” wide sections (but definitely not those that are full width and do not fold). A better way to answer your question is: if it would fit behind a C7 seat, it would fit behind a C8 seat. I did a google search and did not find one with a C8 emblem. Anyone have?

        We saw a person 6’7” fit into the C8’s passenger seat, so there is lots of room in the C8 that way, 1” more literally than in a C7. I am 5’11”, 30” inseam, and to fit my feet comfortably (gently touching) against the firewall footrest, I had to move up the seat to the point that there was around 3“ to 4” behind it. It is a perfect place for squish-ables. A person 5’4” tall sat in the passenger seat at NCM and had about 7” to 8” behind her seat.

            I still have my custom C7 sunshade. I wonder if it will work in the C8.

              I'm still waiting for my C8. Would someone that already has theirs please measure the distance across the windshield from A pillar to A pillar and also the distance from the bottom to the top so I have an idea what size the area is to cover. Thanks very much. Inches are preferred, but I will convert CM if needed.

                In the past, I've gotten all of my custom sunshields from Carid.com. They do not have any as of last week but I'm sure they will soon. I still don't have my car but I will need a nice sunshade to help in the Arizona heat and sun. My last shade from them was for a Mercedes AMG C63s. It was a perfect fit and looked almost brand new after I got rid of the car after the 3 yr lease was up.

                  So, I may have a lead on this. It turns out that a company called Covercraft, which makes it very high quality custom foldable sunshade, is located only about 40 miles south of me. I reached out to their customer service and was told that they simply hadn’t been able to get their hands on a C8 to get the required measurements. Since I’m only a half hour away, I offered to let the measure my vehicle. I have an appointment for later in the month and they indicated it should be a very quick turnaround to get them cut and available on the website. I’ll keep everyone posted.

                    I hope they are going to give you one for free, as a minimum!

                        Nice CZS! Yes, I think the last shade I had was made by CoverCraft and sold by Car id. Thx for taking on for the team!

                          That's great news. All of my vehicles have Covercraft Sunshades. Always top quality.

                            I’m thinking about a 70% ceramic film on the windshield. I should still have good night visibility, but 99% of the UV will be blocked. I may not need a sunshade, and hopefully will not have peeling/shrinking 3LT dash leather like many C7s.

                              Just following up on this, were you able to go down to covercraft and let them measure?
                              Thanks
