2012 BMW X3: Rear Side Sunshades

September 12, 2012

I'm sure back seat passengers appreciate the option to block the bright sun with the the BMW X3's pull up sunshades, but as the driver, they make me crazy, especially the one on the left side.

Every time I glace over my left shoulder to change lanes, I'm startled by the appearance of the sunshade. It's not like it reduces visibility, but it always takes a millisecond for my brain to register what the heck it is.

Keep those things down, please.
