Hey Sidewinder,
Not too bad looking. What were your impressions on the quality of the ventshades? Do they seem sturdy or flimsy?

Do you think that they will break easily if someone accidently bumps them?

Any feedback will be appreciated as these seem like something we could use.

Thanks

BTW, what % is your front tint? Does Florida really allow tint that dark on the front windows, or are you just a rebel?

I like the shades. How easily did they go on? Is there any way to get a scan of the installation document?

The Infamous NOISE Question?

Do the ventshades add any additional windnoise to the car? What are your impressions pre- vrs post-ventshade wind noise?

The shades are made of flexible material but its very sturdy once its applied to the window frame. There is a two sided adhesive tape already on the shade and all you do is peel the tape, align to the window frame then press. As far as wind noise, I haven't noticed any difference around 50mph with the shades but haven't had chance to drive at highway speeds yet. My guess is it should be no different than the moonroof visor and I've seen some posts claim that MRV actually decreases wind noise(I haven't noticed either way). BTW, the front tint is 35% which is the legal limit in FL. It actually looks darker on the photos due to the reflection.

Cost?

Hey sidewinder do you happen to know how much those ventshades cost? I would like to get some. Those look awsome. Also I would like to tint my front windows too, but very illegal here in Illinois. Oh well.

I'm thinking since it is illegal anyway...going 25%. I want the 2 front windows to match the back perfect.

Sidewinder: Which (%) do you think would match the back perfect ? Anyone ?

I presume all the MDX's come tinted the same. The rear side windows and the back window are very dark. You can not easily see through them. I do not like untinted windows so I put medium on the side fronts and they look great. If you get any kind of a ticket in So. Cal. and the front windows are real dark you will have to have the tint removed. That means two trips to the tint shop - 1. to get the tint removed and 2. to get the tint replaced after the ticket is signed off.

Sidewinder,

You've now had these for almost a month, so what are you impressions after some use. Any added wind noise, does it keep the rain out, etc...

Thanks,

AtlantaMDX

How do they protect in the rain?

Any added wind noise?

From day to day driving, I haven't noticed any added wind noise from them. Will be going on a 500mi trip tomorrow and this will be a good test. Now I crack open all 4 windows when parking and it does keep the car cooler in the Florida heat. No rain yet as the drought continues so good for the MDX but terrible for my lawn.

Forget PEP BOYS, go with TIM

Pep Boys told me they didn't know when they would come in...ordered approx. two weeks ago. Getting hot here in Georgia so I called Tim...took no more than 3 minutes and he will ship them today.
ACURA4Life is right...go with Tim for accessories.

Hope they are easy to install.

What a dope I was trying to deal with PEP Boys.
