JDM Window Visor or Replica

I've seen some on eBay as replicas with JDM on the head line of the listing but when contacting them they're saying its a replica.

Does anyone have experience with the replica versions? Is it better to spend the $250 on new jdmpassword ones?

I could use opinions and suggestions.

Re: JDM Window Visor or Replica

there's nothing JDM about them if they were available through every honda dealership in the U.S.


I know nothing about the replicas.

Re: JDM Window Visor or Replica

^^^ ditto. I got my weathertechs for like $30 shipped. I do t care how JDM it is, I'm not wasting that much on plastic. especially if you can get the same thing for cheaper. I've had mine in for 2 years and they're still mint

Re: JDM Window Visor or Replica

I got wearhertech's too and I love them. I'm not sure how long I've had mine, maybe a year but I had to do a custom fix on them cause they were not staying attached to the window very well so a small strip of 3M tape has done the trick and they're perfect again

Re: JDM Window Visor or Replica

I beg to differ, I've got the real thing and I think they just look a lot better than the weathertechs and judging from pictures mine come out a good bit further to provide more air flow.

BTW, jdmland has the visors for $200. PW:JDM is almost always overpriced.

Not really, I just said I like the way they look better. It's worth the extra $170 to me because I'm really picky about certain things. Some people just prefer the better things in life.

Re: JDM Window Visor or Replica

It 's really comes down to your own preference!!! Some are more into the look n slight diff of the purpose it serves and some get the rep ones jus for the purpose of it itself.

That's like if someone who buys JORDANS as opposed to someone buying Skechers ()!!! They both serve the same purpose but some like JORDANS bc of the name brand as well as style while others who buy cheaper shoes buy them for it's sole purpose of protecting their feet while walking!!!

Re: JDM Window Visor or Replica

I think the jdm ones look better.. They're bigger, darker and come out further.. No homo

U can get them new from icb for $200

The jdm ones and the weathertechs are the only ones I'd consider.. I wouldn't get any that are stick on

It's all preference.. Some people don't like them at all

Good point, for the most part as long as you don't get a stick on one you should be in good shape.

If the JDM ones stick out more you would probably get better air flow but it's probably not noticeable. The fact that the weathertechs are more narrow is another reason why I like them better looks wise, they don't stick out as much when you're looking at the car straight on.

That's why I got the weathertechs.
I also didn't feel like spending $200 on 2 pieces of plastic.
