Thankfully where there are loads of cheap Chinese products flooding the market, we also have such good quality US products available in India.
Got the Brica Strech to fit sunshades ( 2 Nos.) from ebay yesterday. Yes it is awesome, and looks good too. My Mahindra Quanto has large windows and it still covers most of the area. A very good option for cars with large windows.

Brica cling on sunshades
Ordered 2 Brica cling on sunshades last week for 300 each.
Primary reason for ordering them is
1) advantage of rolling down windows without taking off the shades
2) no suction cups and hence no stains on the windows (OCD)

Fixing the shades:Fixing the shades without bubbles or folds is time consuming and the shade has a plastic runner at the bottom that needs to go into the gap between the beading and the mirror. Getting it to sit there is a pain and as soon as you start working upwards and fixing the shade, the runner pops out or the shade folds just above the runner and you have to start all over again

Effectiveness:Very disappointed with the product as it doesn't look very good when you have it on and the rolling down of windows with the shades on is not as smooth as I expected it. The shade manages to block sunlight but given the size of my windows, there is a gap and the sunlight streams in right through! Roll down the window and the shades wrinkle and fold and prevent the window from rolling down further

On the whole its not worth the money and would suggest you try stretch to fit or any other brand. Planning to do some DIY sunshades. Will post once I am done with the same.
