Well, I made this post to let know to anybody considering buying a custom fit windshield sunshade to avoid the TechShade from WeatherTech.

Now that summer is here, temperatures here in Houston are getting hotter, and my $8 generic sunshades are disintegrating and leaving silver flakes all over the dashboard on both of my cars. I started looking into those expensive custom fit winshield sunshades.

The reason why I considered these is because I don't like the idea of using the sunvisors to hold the sunshade in place. Especially if I have to do it on a daily basis, I'll end up wearing them unnecesarily or even worse, breaking them.

So after looking some reviews on youtube and confirming in WeatherTech's official website the sunshades for C30/S40/V50 and C70 ARE NOT the same model number. I bought one from them. If the quality and fitment was good, then I would buy another from them for my S40.

129909


After spending ~$62 and one week later, the package arrived. The quality is very good, very sturdy material. It will hold itself flat just from the rear view mirror. However, to my dissapointment, the product didn't fit the windshield as advertised. It was meant for a taller and wider windshield.

129911


129908


129912


After making sure I ordered the correct model number. I tested the C70 sunshade in the S40, and to my surprise, it did fit perfectly. Since I was going to order one for the S40, I saw no need to return this one, so I kept it.

But this doesn't end here. I ordered another TS0354 again, this time from their official website. And when it arrived. It was the same thing, Cut to fit S40/V50 windshield. This time I returned it and got refunded.

Now, I wonder if the TS0290 (for S40/V50) will fit the C70. If it does, they must have their templates mixed up. Because it doesn't make sense to use two different model numbers if they have the same shape.

Long story short: The WeatherTech TechShade TS0354 DOES NOT FIT our cars. I bought two and when they arrived they didn't fit as advertised. They were meant for S40/V50.

HI,
Just to clarify. Ok the TS0354- does fit the S40- correct? As you can see I have both cars also.
Looks like a great fit on the S40-

Yes, TS0354 fits S40 perfectly despite being advertised for C70 only.

Sometimes is a little tricky to get it between the headliner and the windshield but that’s because I don’t fold it when not in use, I just put it between the front and back seats.


According to them TS0290 is for S40/V50 only. But chances are either is the same as TS0354 (meant for S40/V50) or fits C70 only.


C30 has different models for some reason. TS0879 for cars without rain sensor and TS0877 with rain sensor.

Did you reach out to weathertech about this beyond the return?

I explained that when I filed the return.

Also I have to correct myself. I didn't buy the second sunshade directly from their website. I did it from their official amazon market place. Because if I would've done it from their website, I would have to pay the return shipping. Going through amazon got me free return shipping.
