My beloved Subaru is sailing the high seas from Seattle to Honolulu this very moment.  I hope she travels safely.  I miss her so much.  I want to get the correct size sunshades and maybe some seat covers that will protect her leather and keep me cool.  Please my Pleiadian brothers and sisters - any advice?

Pretty sure I've seen fitted/custom/'vehicle specific' sunshades on Amazon. maybe from subarugenuineparts.com ?

 

also, there are dashcovers that are fitted - I have one on my WRX since it rarely is in a garage.dashmat.com, amazon, coverking, w'ever.

 

consider Huper Optik or other quality tint also.

It's not a custom sunshade but I called them and the parts representative assured me that it would fit my 1996 Subaru.  I hope that's true since I am paying to send it to Hawaii. :unsure:

For the other windows, a friend recommended that I get those tinted.  Any thoughts?

, I have Huper Optik (mentioned above) on my 06 WRX. Been on there since spring of 06. It sits outside here in Texas all the time. No weird colors, no bubbles yet. Some very slight distortion around where the edge of the windows rest on the seal. Only visible when I lower the windows. The car is still hot when you get inside, but it cools off very quickly and probably helps the A/C keep up. Protects the interior too I guess. The HO material is ceramic so, might be less attenuation for radio, gps and cellphone signals.
