I can see the definite benefits of a foil insulator on the sunroof. With my car I could mount it to the moonroof.

But then again, I could install a solar panel there and reduce my dependance on the alternator, and maybe even wire it up so it could run the blower to keep the car cooler in the hot summer sun.
