    Don't bother with the back ones unless you carry rear seat passengers a lot. They're not very secure!

    I took mine off after only two weeks. Made too much noise when driving above 50mph. Sounded like window was always slightly open. Rubbish.

    Looks like Graham has a 3 door from the profile pic.

    I've got team heko deflectors, I find them to be fine. I don't remember what the sound was before so cant comment if there is a big noise difference but I've not noticed anything to make it stick in my mind.

    They do make alot of wind noise but slightly help with the water running into the window off the roof everytime I pull away-___-

    Sorry yes this was on my 3 door. I never tried to run them without the metal clips and I'm guessing the thickness of the clip is what stops the window completely shutting.

    I bought some the other day and have put them on. Seem fine to me. and rear ones are very secure with the clips.

    had to buy these as i bought some cheap ones last time. Opened my rear windows during the recent hot weather on the way back from work... got home from work and ooops... a rear one had been lost along the way home!
