Now the sun is out, how annoying is the dashboard reflection in the windscreen?!?!? The perforations for the air con/fan is extremely disruptive to the visibility. So much so this has to be considered a design faulty surely.

Try looking above the reflection and you will see how clear visibility is if the perforations werent there.

Extremely annoying on a long trip in the sun, so much so I will be covering mine with some plain old cardboard.

I noticed that on my current e class there are reflections of the centre grill and occasionally the hud housing. I think it is a feature that will arise in any car dependent on conditions.

Someone else posted about the reflection issue.
I have a pair of lightly shaded polarised sunglasses and they definitely cut out most of the reflections.

Same here. Its a nightmare. I've been driving around with my black gym towel lying across the dash for the last 6 months to hide the reflection

I’m glad it’s not just me! The reflections from the chequered surface of the dashboard are extremely intrusive. I haven’t tried polarised sun glasses but have considered covering the entire dashboard top with a black cloth - with a hole for the HUD, of course. It seems daft to have to resort to such a basic solution…

I noticed it strongly for the first time this week with the sunny weather but only on some journeys in some directions at some times. When waiting for my EQC but lurking in forums and being aware of the complaints I noticed the e class also had reflections in certain conditions but not of the same order as it’s interior design is totally different. I have simply got used to it but I agree it is quite a striking effect but thankfully it does not trouble me.

My wife has the same problem, and considers it a design fault. Sunglasses help but doesn’t remove the problem for her. I’m taller and it doesn’t bother me so much. Perhaps raising the seat will help those impacted?

I’ve looked hard and can’t find a dash cover for the EQC anywhere in the UK. I’m reduced to putting some black cloth over the offending section. And this, in a £70k car - it’s rediculous!

I noticed a reflection today of sunlight reflecting off the vents onto the front windscreen, when the sun was high in the sky and slightly behind car; based on my usual direction and timing of travel it has not been so noticeable but thankful to know there is an aftermarket solution if I am driving in a different direction and it becomes a problem. The reflection is even more directly obscuring the center of the front windscreen than photo, depending on seating position/driver height.

For the gloss black reflection, it has helped me to keep the centre console door open (the opening below climate control for phone charger and cupholders).
