I got the OEM Audi sun shades for my B5 from my Audi dealer.
I got the ones for the side-windows and the one for the backlite.

Part#:
side-windows: 8D5 064 362 (90 Euro)
backlite: 8D5 064 360 (76 Euro)

The install was a PITA but I like them alot [:D]

They look good, but I still want self-tinting windows.

I've seen a setup that a custom shop did where they used a two-ply plastic layer on the inside glass of the car with a pump attached to the cavity between the two layers. A black ink (like toner) would be pumped into the cavity to blacken it. Another press of the button would evacuate the ink and return it to the reservoir attached to the pump. Since it was a dry ink, it left no residue.

Very pimp but, very expensive to create.

I was just going to say that. I wonder how expensive that would be...

well the easier way would be the magnetically charged crystal method of clear and mirror or something along those lines
