I decided to order this very rare S70 product with no knowledge of it. I was very concerned that it wouldn't look factory, as the S70 has no preparation for it. I am extremely happy with the quality and design of the shade. I had one on my old car and soon realized how helpful these shades are against headlight glare. I'm not a supporter of aftermarket window tinting, so this was the option for me. I thought I would show the shade installed and recommend it to others who may be interested. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Cost was about $131 through Jamie at Daryl Waltrip. Very good value! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Grey 9488 626-4
Beige 9204 515-2
Oak 9488 668-6

Grey 9406 947-3
Blue 9406 948-1
Beige 9406 949-9

Effectively protects against the heat and sunlight.
Neatly suited to hat shelf. Smart, functional.
The blind rolls up into an aluminium holder that is colourmatched
to the hat shelf. The blind is pulled up and clipped
into existing inserts in the roof like a roller-blind.
Good rear vision through blind material.
The car needs no modification for the sun blind.
Please refer to the back of the catalogue, for
coordination between interior codes and colours.

I couldn't tell from the pictures- does it block access to the storage box on the rear shelf? When its up it looks like it blocks it, but does it also when its retracted?

You can't access it when the shade is up.

The instruction manual includes a funny diagram showing how you need to stick your fingers through the opening for the center seat belt;

"Open the cover of the storage box in the parcel shelf by inserting fingers into the opening for the safety belt and pressing the cover upwards."

One thing worth mentioning - as you can see, the housing is rather tall and obtrusive (most noticeable when looking at the picture with rear head rest). This doesn't bother me at all, I'm really happy with it.
