Default WeatherTech side window deflector? Anyone?

I have been looking for a set of side window deflectors and found that WeatherTech makes them for the RX. It looks very simple to install, but it's different than how a regular deflector gets put on. I just wonder if anyone here has the experience of those product? I know for sure they make very high quality floor mats and many users like them.

Thank you for your input.

I had the WeatherTech visors on the previous RXs. Installation can be scary. They need to be bent to get in the window channels. Afterwards, WeatherTech advises leaving the windows up for a few hours to set them in place. They needed an occasional gentle push up at times because they moved. Not often though. Only one broke after a few years. It may have been my fault. I probably pushed the wash mitt underneath the rear visor too hard to clean underneath.

I would have gotten them for the 450h but the rears were not available back then. So I went with the JDM visors instead. Couldn't be happier.

Here is a link that may be helpful. The install on WeatherTechs seem scary, but it's nothing to worry about. The material they use is good quality. The only down fall I’ve seen was that the rear deflectors tend to loosen up at times. The JDM visors are the way to go, but everyone knows how expensive they are.

Awesome, thanks my friend. I guess it's worth the try since it cost so much less compare to the JDM one and that is about as much as I want to pay for a set of visors.
