    When you bought the OEM, you bought a CoverCraft, most likely with a $15 extra OEM charge...

All fit perfectly, including the one for my 2019 CX-5, and are high quality and last for the duration. The angle of the glass in my current vehicle, however, makes it a bit more difficult to get the lower right side perfectly in place from the driver's seat. I also had to cut out a bit for where I mounted my dashcam, but that's not a negative reflection (ha) on the fit of the sunshade.

    The OEM shades are fine (neighbor has one in his CX-5), but I didn't want a logo on mine.

    FYI on the windshield tinting--some states don't permit that at all or only in particular circumstances. Florida for example only allows non-reflective tint above the AS1 line, and if there is no AS1 line on the windshield, no tint is allowed. Neither my 2016 nor my 2019 CX-5 windshields have AS1 lines. I know some people just take their chances and ignore such laws, but I tend to err on the side of caution.
    I want to get the covercraft ones too because it has no logo, I'll wait till mine is worn out then get that lol Windshield tint is illegal in all 50 states but honestly it's so light it's barely noticeable, you only feel the difference of not feeling much heat coming from up front. It's the biggest piece of glass on the whole car, with most heat coming in from, so it makes most sense to get that tinted (with the lightest most effective tint possible)

    This is 70% on the whole windshield, parked outside with the OEM shade up, it helps tremendously.

    I'm thinking about it.

    I want to do protective film as well before it's "too late."

    My wife bought a sunshade for ours. I'm reluctant to use it because I'm worried about the electronics behind the mirror overheating.
