Default WeatherTech deflectors - Got 'em

Put 'em on today with minimal hassle. Took about 15 minutes.

I'll be testing them after the 24-hr. 'set-in' time.
They exude high quality construction and superior material workmanship; ease of installation; and anticipated customer satisfaction.

We ordered a set for my Mom'* '99 Cadillac Sedan de Ville, and may spend the extra money on a set for the '92 GMC Jimmy 4-door, as well.
They are worth the $$$ over the VentShade as far as I can tell.

If that sounds like a commercial endorsement - it oughtta!
I'll post an update after the first rain...!

There'* the link.

As for the 'flow', I like the thought of the rain 'flowing' OVER the shades instead of into my car window.
In fact, I think having these particular shades show that the vehicle operator understands the factory design flaw and purchased the BEST option to get 'form follows function'.
The BEAUTY is in the execution of the design.

Hey thats the chick I always see in the back of the Motor Trend mags. So do these actually help in the rain? It rains a whole lot so could I just go driving with the windows cracked about 5 inches and feel only a few drops or will I feel nothing? A few drops is cool but I dont want my door panels soaked. These seem like a pretty good buy.

And hows the wind noise? Its pretty loud without it and I would like to be able to hear my engine when Im not listening to music. Will this cut the noise down significantly?
