I don't have them for my IS, but both my dad and I have a set for our Tacoma's. The front visors both make it difficult to close the windows all the way and a smudge is present. This seems to be common for multiple vehicle models.

Bummer debating if i should keep them on or not. Guess i just expected them to fit correctly with out any problems. Might go.with the outer ones

I was going to go aftermarket on the visors but after seeing them in person I was scared to put them on my car. this looks like something that it's best to go OEM on... unfortunately I think the dealer charges like 400 for these

the weathertech visors are super tight. literally. the window on the passenger side clips it everytime i roll it up or down... meh, but the other three work good.

I have Weathertech visors on my BMW & ISF. Over time the BMW visors "settled in" and barely rub. Both the ISF visors rub, sometimes the pass window starts to go auto down from the resistance of the visor. I think like the BMW it's just a matter of time to "settle in".
