Wind Deflectors

Post by sonicvanman » Mon Jul 16, 2012 3:26 pm

For a while now i have been contemplating get some wind deflectors because when its been rain & i want to lets some air in & when my mrs has a cigarette the water drips straight in to the car which annoys me & to stop the wind buffering.

But of course i was always a bit dubious about how it would look as i have never see any on a 1 series & there are no photo anywhere online.

I recently went to a Ford ST meet with my mate & there was a couple with them which looked ok & suttle with them fitted, so i decided to be the guinea pig.

I bought some Climair http://www.climairuk.com/product.php?pr ... t=6&page=1" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; for £50

Im not 100% convinced but i think they look ok, i will leave them on for a coulp of weeks & see how i feel.

What do you think?

Any reason you didn't go for Heko wind deflectors. IMHO they are a much better shape and style than ones you have. £50 is also quite a lot of money, I'm sure i didn't pay any more that £30 for my Heko's.

I have them on mine.

This is where i got mine (same seller) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-piece-Wind- ... 269wt_1314" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Yeah mine are black, which matches the shadow chrome line finish very well.

Personally not a fan of them, but I do see the point in them and if you get some decent looking ones they won't look too bad.

I think they match darker colour cars more than lighter though.

I'm a big fan, look smart and serve a purpose. My last few imported Hondas had them on.

If I could have them on the coupe then it's one of the first things I'd of bought

They do them for the 3 door e81. Not sure how securely they would be fitted but they are available to buy. If anyone goes ahead... Update me with how they look and feel.
