2011 Mini Countryman: Help, Need Shade

April 04, 2011

I just spent a very sunny southern California weekend cooking in our long-term 2011 Mini Cooper S Countryman All4.

As you can see in the photo above, the Mini's sunroof does not have a retractable solid shade. Instead it's retractable shade is perforated fabric. Many cars have this and it usually isn't a problem, but the Mini's shade is too porous.

Too many holes. Or the holes are too big. Whatever. I had the Countryman's air conditioning working overtime to battle the incoming solar rays.
