    When i was looking for some new wind deflectors i couldn't find many photos of the climair ones, as a result i thought i'd take a few photos of them to help people out in future.

    Costs:

    3dr version £33.16
    Shipping cost £8.50
    VAT 20% £7.67
    Discount £3.32

    Total £46.01

    Enter discount code "CLUB197" for a saving of £3.32, every little helps


    So a mini review, based on me having the Team Heko ones before

    -Alot harder to get into the window channel
    -Made from thicker materials
    -Doesn't need any metal clips to stay in place
    -Dont fall out all of the time
    -Not as dark tinted so less blind spots near the mirror
    -Still doesnt stop all of the water from the free shower coming in but stops 99% of it
    -Quieter than heko ones for wind noise

    All in all i'd say they are much better than the cheaper team heko ones, Anyway pictures..

    Any questions feel free to ask

    I wouldn't recommend folding the mirrors in automatically, they do catch a bit more than the heko ones do

    Looks good.

    You say a lot harder to get into the window channel, can you define that and how long they took to fit? Cheers

    A lot harder as in stiffer to bend into the channel than the heko ones, its still only a few minute job to do the lot but i feel they are 10x better than the heko ones

    I've had a set of these briefly some time ago & personally I think they were a pita at times & for a client, look shxt & with folding mirrors only causes issues with, I personally would put up with a few dribbles than refit these, best thing I did was snap them in half & recycle the plastic.

    Ever tried smoking without any?

    All the rain comes in and ends up on your face, all down your arms, all down the door, all over the carpet, soaks the seats, to me they are awesome.

    Yea you could say give up, but then thats a whole other argument haha

    I have fitted these on my car and they are 100x better than the heko ones I had to keep refitting the heko ones but these have stayed firmly in place even with people pulling on them.

    Yes I have, a long time ago before I gave up, never soaked my seats or carpet, not in my face, so for me I'd rather go without the deflectors.

    & yes I do say give up, better looking car & also healthier for you :p
