Review: WeatherTech Visors

So some of you are probably waiting for this I finally have some time to really sit down and talk about these.

First of all i bought it from BTG motoring the link is right here.

Window Visors: Honda - Prelude (97-01) Front Only - All Major Brands!

When I first got the package it was really excited it waited about 9 days to finally receive them. I opened it right away and tested it for fitment. The fitment is awesome! They pretty much pop right in, but you have to install them right to make it a stay which can be confusing. I didnt need my car for the rest of the day so I didnt get to try them out, but so far so good I am a happy luder.

Today it was raining and I decided to test these babies out, guess what? not a single drop of rain got into my car! I love my weathertech visors for the price it is a great alternative to the JDM version.

P.s there is a weathertech logo on the visor but its just a sticker and peels right off oh and they hold on good! no one can steal them after you properly install them.

pics soon.....

Re: Review: WeatherTech Visors

nice, wasn't sure before since I hadn't seen any good pics of them
like how they look in comparison to jdm, and the fact that they're not very dark (at least where I've seen them)
but nice review, definitely planning on picking up a pair of these

Re: Review: WeatherTech Visors

I believe i might have to get some of these soon also. I loved these on my civic when i smoked and it rained. But i quite smoking over a year ago, but they just have a realy nice look to them. I would like to see them installed on a EPB though.

Re: Review: WeatherTech Visors

Oh nice writeup!
Okay I already posted this question in another thread like a doosh, but it still applies here too.

What kind of wind noise do they generate compared to none at all?

Re: Review: WeatherTech Visors

do any of you guys have the same issue as me? for me they make a disgusting squeak/scratching noise when you close the window, it rubs against the rain guard and i cant seem to find a way to get rid of it.

Re: Review: WeatherTech Visors

I have these weatherTech rain guards and I love them!! I had a thread on here last spring when i was going to buy them because there was not an option to get the smoked ones like there was for other vehicles. My car is black with dark tints and I didn't want to get clear ones. We went as far as calling and emailing them and were going to see if they would make them special if we got enough people and made a group buy. They said they didn't and wouldn't make smoked ones for the prelude. So still really wanting them I ordered the ones they had available and was going to smoke them out myself with that taillight tint spray stuff. But...When they came, to my surprise, they were plenty dark and I just popped them on in under 3 minutes, and I love them!

But in my thread, everyone was raggin on me tryin to tell me how the JDM ones were so much better. Now everyone seems to be diggin these WeatherTech ones.

Re: Review: WeatherTech Visors

I like the look of them but after installing them on my gen8 coupe I was dissapointed. I'm not sure if they are as thin around the mounting flange as mine were; but I swear I could break the plastic if I looked at it wrong. I followed the instructions to a T and on a rather windy day a month later my passenger side said bye bye on the highway.
