Your review does not address the gerbils.I've had one of these in my MS3 (Mazdaspeed3, not Megasquirt 3...) for 5 years. It's been absolutely worth the investment for me. I live in a city where the ambient temps are over 100 degrees pretty much every day from late May through late September (it's been over 115 this entire week). I've had the $8 foil-front/foam-back shades from Walmart before, and this type of sustained heat completely disintegrates the foam to the point that it ends up all over your car after 1 season. These UVS shades cost more up-front, but they definitely last longer than the cheap shades if you live somewhere hot enough to bake cookies on your dashboard, and the fit to your windshield perimeter is custom instead of a rolled up rectangle. Live with the Walmart stuff if you live where you don't see 100 degree days more than twice a year, but the UVS shade is worth the cost if you live somewhere with a long summer season of sustained 100+ degree days.
