    I believe the part number is: VPLFY0068

    I have an OEM one from my MY13, but for some reason it won't fit right or easily in my 16. Guessing it could be due to different size of sensors/camera assembly behind/under the rearview mirror. My 13 did not have the adaptive cruise control but 16 does, hence the difference in that inside area of the windshield.

    If I know who makes it for LR, i might as well go directly to their site to see if they offer anything for my year.

    Looks a lot like Covercraft to me

    Yes, it is the Covercraft UVS100.

    Yeah, I own it and it doesn't fit great around the mirror/sensor. It definitely wasn't made for the newer models.

    I have the Covercraft UVS100 for our 2010 LR4 and it fits nicely. Didn't realize the late LR4's were different; apparently Covercraft hasn't figured this out either. Might be worth contacting them, if they want to correct this issue, you might get a discounted or free shade out of the deal if you help them with R&D dimensions?

    Hi Jessica,

    Thank you very much for connecting here and allowing me the opportunity to assist Covercraft, and apologies for the delayed response.

    Would love to chat with Mr. Reeder and will contact him next week.

    Thanks and have a great weekend.
