How do you keep the heat out of your car?

Sucks for you... I don't know what to do.
Here's my idea.
None of the above

Every time I get into the car after it has been sitting in the same spot all day it feels like I just sat in the oven. The heat makes it hard to breath and the seats are hot. I think I may be overworking the AC because I always have it on full blast.
I bought a sun visor to block the sun from my front mirror, but it really doesn't work great. What can I do?

    I have one of those shiny silver sun shades that goes under the windshield.

    My Audi has the 'Summer Package" which includes an Solar Panel in the sunroof, and those power fans that circulate air in the car while it is sitting in the parking lot.

    And.. I hit the button that raises the rear shade.

    And.. I keep the side window lift shades in place.

    Then.. I try to park where some afternoon shade ends up on my car...

    and finally - - I hit the remote start and start the car, as I am walking up to it, so that by the time I get there, the AC is already starting to push out cool air.

    Works good for me.

    Put down all of the windows and start driving, it isn't immediate but it helps very much.

    What color is your car?

    White. Is that bad?

    No, that's good. White cars reflect heat. Black cars adsorb heat. The only thing I could recommend is to try and park it in the shade and use big sun shades when parked. Roll down all windows for about the first five minutes will usually help; that will remove all the heat as you start moving.

    A sun shade, crack the windows, and buy a new car that can start (by remote) prior to you getting in.

    I have a sun shade, I don't trust my windows cracked, and I guess I might consider doing that remote thing.. Where do you get that?

    Lots of cars come with it (a girl in my office has it in her Honda), and I think you can get it after market. I'd look on the web.
