I have always had those thin reflectors that you had to bend JUST RIGHT to get closed into their tight little circles. They worked fine but it always seemed hot inside the car anyway. They kept the interior from fading, but didn't do much for the actual heat. The Covercraft Shade basically blocks out the sun and heat. It's thick and is cut specifically to my BMW 325cic. I've seen some reviews where the shade wore out a little too quick, but I am pretty careful with my "stuff" so I hope it holds up for a long time. They are expensive options, but if you have a nice car and plan to drive it until the wheels fall off like I do, then this is a good investment.
