The headlamps, taillights and plastic trims will fade at a different rate, so buy some spares for when the partial sun light destroys the exposed parts.

You should consider parking the car in reverse for one week, and heading front for another week, so the alternation allows an even wear of all the painted surfaces.

Over time, sunlight does fade out interior home furnishings and carpets, have seen it happen first hand. Darker colors are more susceptible.

For your garage, cheap blinds from the home centers are good enough to deal with it and can keep prying eyes away as well.

Yes. I only take my car out when it is room temperature (71.5) and overcast. I had considered taking it out at night but I'm afraid the heat from the headlights will cause yellowing on the lenses.
