    Wind deflectors?

    What are people's opinions on these? Will be going on a sport back.

    They don't look to bad on a 3 door but not that great on the Sportback... Just my opinion though!

    Not everyones cup of tea but I fitted some at the begin of this year. They're made by Climair. I bought them for 52 (3dr). Very easy to fit - they go into the window channel.

    Sportback set of 4 are 82

    I have them and there one of the best purchases i have made,in the winter you can leave the window down a few mm's under them and the car doesnt condensate as bad or at all or in the summer you can do the same letting fresh air in without the alarm going off,plus you can also have your windows open while you wash your front screen without the water running round the 'A' post and on to the interior door trim,mine cost about 35 for the team heko ones

    Don't know about that one on ebay....

    AUDI A3 8P WIND DEFLECTORS on eBay (end time 04-Apr-11 18:38:05 BST)

    But Climair or Team Heko are the ones guaranteed to fit & look good also top quality!

    i have the team heko ones on my sportback the fronts fit ok but if you have power fold mirrors they squash the deflectors slightly
    and the rears are a crap fit not quite long enough if you ask me!
    get what you pay for wish i had got the farad or climair now!

    Climair are more expensive but definitely worth the extra money. I bought them on my Climair membership for 52. Best ones out there - T.U.V approved (ISO standards)!!

    second that apart from the power fold mirrors squishing the fronts
    rears are a pretty bad fit they are at least 1/2cm short maybe more to fit the rear windows properly.
    my advice would be to buy climair or farad ones!

    I bought the Team Heko ones for my 3dr A3.



    I really liked them to start off, looked good and helped prevent "The A3 Shower" in the mornings.

    However...

    If you have a 2012 A3 like mine with folding mirrors they do not work. Mine go up rather than simply in and push against the deflectors quite a bit when folded

    They are noisy as feck when doing above 40/50mph.

    They get really dirty and look pants quite quickly.

    For the above reasons I took them off last week.

    Without the deflectors my car is as silent as the night when on the road doing those sort of speeds.

    I have OEM ones fitted at factory on my Sportback. Was thinking of pulling them off to give the car a smoother look.
    Havnt heard of anyone fitting them aftermarket before!

    Here are mine, climair, finally arrived




    Positive: can drive with open windows and not catch the cold od headache, and it looks cool
    Negative: cannot fold mirrors any more without damaging either mirror cap or deflector

    I'm leaving them on.

    How to get rid of the climair sticker though?!
