Installed the side window Sunshades. Mainly, I like to be able to leave the windows cracked when sitting out on a hot day and not have to worry about rain getting in.
Bought them off E-Bay (Korea Seller) for $49.75. Found out later there are better prices and my guess is as good a quality. SO SHOP more than I did. Takes a while for delivery as come from Korea.
They fit nicely and easy to install, but end up covering the Chrome at top edge of the door (Mine is EX Model).
No Instructions provided, so I give a couple pointers:
1) Clean surface of door (Chrome) with Alcohol and dry (at least that is what I did).
2) DO NOT REMOVE the backing from the tape completely. Remove about 3 or 4 inches and let it hang loose so you can pull it out a bit at a time as you fit the shades to the door.
NOTE 1: You would have a hard time aligning the entire shade at one time if you had the backing completely off the tape as it will stick to the door where you touch it.
NOTE 2: When doing the front door, I started with the tape loose about 4 inches at the door pillar end. Back door would work starting on either end, but I started at the pillar on back door also.
3) Mine had a small shade piece (about 10 inches long) for the side rear windows. Start it at the door opening.
NOTE: IMPORTANT - Make sure your rear door clears the shade when you open the door before you decide exactly where to stick it. You may need to sit it back a 1/16 or 1/32 from edge of the chrome to clear the rubber gasket on the door as you open the door. MY PASSENGER SIDE REAR DOOR rubber hit the shade after I installed it and I had to remove the shade and slide it back a little.
I think I lucked out and did not destroy the tape on the shade when I removed it.
4) One last comment (not an installation instruction) --- my shades came with a shield to put over the top of the side mirrors. I did not use it as it was a piece of junk (flexible rubber like material that sort of folded down and hides part of the mirror). Besides that, it would look cheap.
The shades do cover the door chrome at top of door, but still look nice (my opinion). Also, unlike my Nissan Rogue which had a visibility problem when turning left because of the pillar that got worse with the width of the shades, visibility seems OK with the NIRO.
The pictures taken in the garage are not too good Lighting - I took one with the garage light on and one with a flash). Maybe get a better one outside.
