    We've got Silverscreens on our A class. It was my first question on Fun and received slightly more replies in favour of SS so went with them and are very happy with choice.

    We prefer Taylormade and have their long length ones, we think they're better quality than Silver Screens and even if they weren't we certainly wouldn't pay an extra £50!

    Hi I have had both and there is not a lot to choose between them -still have the TM - certainly not £50 worth of difference

    I still have Taylor made that I got for our Sprinter (see classified);) Got Silver screens for the new van, both work well but I think Silver screens pack into smaller bag.

    Have had both not a lot of difference in their usage, internal or external in looks etc but the diff is in the brand price so T/M wins every time,for me.
    Look how much wine or fb pies you can get for £50 :)

    Enquired of Taylormade at Peterborough and he was a bit vague as it was an A class and wanted a visit to measure up. Phoned Silverscreens, told him what we had (Pilote Reference) and he said no problem. Made up and delivered a couple of days later. It fits perfectly

    I bought a T/M from the Malvern show and well pleased with it.It's long enough to cover the wiper blades and the gap between the windscreen and the bonnet.(y)

    I bought Taylormade because they were longer. Only regret is the bag - fraying seams stick on to the velcro, so I now use it inside out...

    Does anyone know what the "net option" means on the Taylormade website?

    I believe it's a privacy net - so that when you fold down the front section there is net behind it which still allows light in but preserves your privacy.

    I've only had Silver Screens so can't compare with TM

    another company to consider is VanComfort

    KANTOP External Thermal Cab Insulation Screens, Manufactured in Germany

    no idea if they are better or not.. at £145.. how does that compare with SS and TM ?
