Precisely atleast in my case when i take the car out during lunch. Find a friendly handyman/security/chai wallah who can do the deed for you.

I will choose to park under sunshine here.
My red Swift is still having those stains on the paint caused by AC water drippings and still have not been successful in completely removing them.

Love polls and this is a very interesting one.

Now on the option voted, its the sun.

But out here even if it is in sun, there is dirt all over not due to birds but due to dust.

BTW - This thread is 5 years old, am sure Rtech's circumstances would have changed by now ! Will go for the shade option today though !

The other advantage of parking in the sun, read below the open sky is that if it rains it gives the car a free wash. This not only saves your effort of washing but also helps conserve precious portable water.

In any scenario in our conditions it would get dirty so why not the sun, at least it wouldn't be damp inside the car especially with the winters approaching.
