@javp it looks like you wrapped the grill, what material did you use?

It is the 3m carbon wrap in grey colour, I got it on eBay. The material is thin so it was chipped slightly by stone chip.

Type X - any details on the order process and if you are going the dealer install route or the self install route? Mostly curious if local US dealers will install, and what they might have quoted you on labor?

Thanks!

No canadian dealers would sell or ship
to me. The person went to dealer in quebec, special ordered it & picked it up 2 days later & shipped it down to me in NY.
It should be arriving tomorrow.

Unsure if a US dealer would install but going to look it over tomorrow
and make the decision then

I've always been a fan of factory Honda (Acura) vent visors and I was excited to put them on my new RDX. I was shocked, no visors, no sunroof visor.. if you can get them on a CRV they should be available for an RDX.

Just a note to anyone considering AVS vent-visors, don't. They caused severe corrosion to my Civic's window frame after 4 years..

I'd buy them in a NY minute if they sold them and if they are the ones that fit in the window channel, not stick on the door.

Looks like there is only 1 clip on the front window visor which goes behind the mirror cover and the rest by 3m double-sided tape. There are youtube videos on installation guide for some models. I am not sure about the quality though. If anyone has this installed, please post feedbacks and photos.

Thanks! I'd like to see photos too, I still prefer the channel mount ones.

Cool Window Deflectors....???

Here we are almost a year later and still no GD window deflectors for the 2nd gen model..... ?


WeatherTech stll has a bad case of cranalrectumitis on this product and the hood deflector. We'ins being discriminated against. Acura owners 2013-2016 RDX side windows and hoods matter.... bro.

I bought window visors for my wife's 2016 RDX from Wellvisors.com. There supply is usually limited. Not a fan of weather tech's design. Both the wife and I are very happy with them.

Prefer look of in-channel versions. They also usually are slimmer fit to side windows. Wellvisors look bulkier than I prefer because of their tape mounting to outer frame. They do look well made.

Yeah to each their own. I feel the well visors flow better with the "dummy" chrome trim. The visors aren't bulky to me and cover a good portion of the window. The in channel visors just don't flow well. In addition the well visors also have brackets as well as the tape. The more security. The better.

Just purchased a mint '15 Silver / Black Tech first thing I did was buy this deflector and change out both air filters myself. I don't have the tools for the defector so it's getting put on at the dealer tomorrow.
