are they worth it? when i drive on the freeway and open my window i hate that rush of wind that like pretty mujch creates a storm inside the car (like papers fly here and there and stuff) the thing is it isn't that serious... but would those visor things help? (my friend who has an rsx has a much bigger window however they made the car in a way so that not so much wind actually gets in the car which is something i like)

oh and this is STRICTLY for practical purposes not aesthetic.

IMO they are ugly and i would never put them on any car... i thought they were for smokers, so they could have the windows down when it rains... still the answer is NO.

they dont do anything for the wind. My friend put them on his IS and it is the exact same as it was before. Not worth it IMO....

Umm I have them on my car but not the crappy weathertech once but original alteza ones. Let me tell you originals really blend with the car as they were meant to be. Wind vise I don’t think they help with window all the way down. But in cold weather like right now it helps allot as I crack my window open just a bit to have fresh air coming in and all the wind staying out. and since I’m heavy smoker it was one of the 'best' :D mods I did on my car. for those rainy days.
Now you have an opinion from other side of the fence

I had the vent visors on an 01 Civic coupe. I didn't see any advantage and they actually made more noise. I took them off after the first long trip. The olny time it helped was when cracking the window a little bit while parked in the rain. I still couldn't open it enough to flip out a cig ash. They didn't help at all with driving with windows open.

I aso took off the sunroof visor thing that came on the car, so maybe it's just me.

i cant realy tell you. wind noise never bothered me. my music is allways blasting or my gf is screamming due to me driving to fast or music being to loud :lol: :pissed: i also have unique gift of selective hearing where i can tune allmost anything out (like my boss during boring meetings, or my gf tolking about who else got egaged and what size ring she wants). i guess wind noise fales somewhere in between.

My friend has the Altezza ones that come with the carbon fibre door pilars and it looks very good.
i have mine w/o cf pilars and it looks good. i think my car being black also contributes to the look.

The OEM ones really look good. They even sell them as dealer options now for the new TL and TSX. Of course swap meet ones that someone posted look ghetto because they look like they belong on an old pickup truck with brush guards, chrome ladies on the mudguards, and a lariat hanging from the rearview.
