Thanks, man...made them myself.

Make sure you guys do use the adhesion promoter they sent with the spoiler. It helps it bond a lot!

I'm definitely going to pull the trigger on this. Does the sugar cube trick really work to remove the logo?

these do look good. I like that they don't stick out and look proportionate to the car

no its a emblem thats stuck on. I'm sure you could peel it back with a butter knife or somethin but might scratch the visor

On a side note, they only offer smoke for the side visors. Which color of teh rear matches that the best, matte or shiny?

Definitely shiny, since the glass is shiny, especially if it's tinted.

I still don't understand why people like visors. I will never put them on my car. It's like the good old hood bra or hood bug guard piece. I don't care that I gain the ability to crack open my window just one tad or block the sun at the right position. When that sun drops a bit more, the visors are useless.

1, they look cool.
2, for us that have lost a dash to the cracking epidemic...we need to keep ambient temps down inside the car...using a sun shade helps with direct sun, but not radiant.
3, they look cool.


I actually used to VEHEMENTLY hate them...both, window visors and rear window visor...oddly enough though, I think that's the biggest most interesting thing about my car now...since they flow so well with the body lines.

I think I'm sold on the visors

On the rear visor, are people going with Gloss or Black?

I believe the only time the matte version should be considered is if you have a matte black roof, otherwise glossy most definitely!

What are everyone's thoughts on how these will hold up to automatic car washes?

(I know, I know...I should hand wash. Free time is hard to come by these days :sigh: )

^^I've been through auto washes a few times with these installed, nothing concerning after having the car washed.

You have great double sided tape!
LOL...
even after doing the adhesion promoter and holding the double sided for 20 minutes and no exposing to water immediately, I can see some sections that look like they're not adhering totally.

I guess just proceed with caution!

Do you plan on removing the cheezy logos that were placed on the visors? It's pretty simple. Get something with a flat edge that won't scratch the visor and lift it apart slowly then use some WD40 to get the leftover adhesive residue off.
