Default Chrome window and sunroof deflector???

I have a white rx and I am interested in getting chrome sunroof and front and rear wind deflectors.

Have anyone added them to their car? Does anyone have any pictures?

Does anyone know of a good place to buy them over the net?

I glanced a Venza with them and they looked good IMO, with the fully tinted out windows.

Thanks

Never heard of a rear deflector for the sunroof or chrome sunroof.
From my new iPad.

I've seen chrome pillars on the RX and thought it was too much. There's already just enough around the windows. Maintaining chrome will be a PITA too. I say go for the JDM visors. They'll blend in nicely on white but add a little something. Not sure if the sunroof deflector would increase wind noise. I say skip it.

thanks for the reply.

I thought the sunroof deflector was suppose to decrease noise when the sunroof is open

thanks again

The standard flap that comes up when you open it pretty much does the job as good as it can get. The old tinted ones dealers used to permanently mount just don't do much for these cars. When I was in the business, I could come up with all kinds of reasons to talk a customer into one, but the biggest benefit was the dealer profit. But that's what I was supposed to do back then.

sunroof widely open or inclided is noisy anyway when driving above 80km/h (my opinion)
