Window Vent Visor Opinions/Feedback

My wife suggested I buy vent visors and I agree completely. We have some real nice quality visors from Weathertech for our Honda Pilot, but they're a little pricey at $95ish + shipping + tax here in Illinois.

I saw some other in-channel vent visors on Ebay - does anyone have any feedback on them? Does anyone have any experience at all with Compass vent visors?

I looked at getting the in-chanel vent visors but my distributor said that the window might not close properly with them. I went with the standard AVS stick on ones and haven't had a problem with them. Just a tip, clean the body where they go on well and there is an activator you can get from 3M that makes it stick better as well.

Everyday as a child i used to pray to God to give me a jeep. After a couple of years i realized that God did not work that way. So i stole a jeep and asked for HIS forgiveness

Weird, I have in-channel for the pilot and they look and function perfectly. Hmmm, not sure if I want to go with tape, but may have to consider it!

You can always try the in-channel ones and switch to tape if anything happens. At least it's easy to switch that way.

Well, after some thought on the matter, I decided to go with the AVS In-Channel Window Ventvisors. Here are a few pictures of them installed:

AVS In-Channel Ventvisor - Front
AVS In-Channel Ventvisor - Rear

I love how sleek the in-channel variety is, but I really dislike the way AVS designed the Compass in-channels. Every tab is in-channel except for the tab that attaches to the post on the rear window.

Here are the Weathertech in-channel vent visors that I installed on my wife's pilot:

Weathertech In-Channel Ventvisor - Front
Weathertech In-Channel Ventvisor - Rear

It looks so much better with the tab installed in-channel than on the post, but I am getting used to it and it's not as noticeable as when I first installed the product.

I guess the decision comes down to the $60+ difference between the two brands (Weathertech is taxed and shipped even though I'm in Illinois).

Just thought I'd share!

In channel is the way too go. Looks much better than the other method. I bought mine through autoanything.com.

If you can get it for less. Why not!
