Lets take a look back at part of your first post today.

Why do you all put these on? I dont have them and I certainly dont get "rain water" in my windows and doors.
The whole quoted parts SCREAMS arrogance. Especially the first sentence and then putting the words rain water in quotes. First off come across a bit friendlier, it'll work out better

So I asked you why you put a CAI on. You gave me reasons as to why you feel that part is significant and I gave you reasons as to why I thought my part is significant. All said and done, we both had reasons for WANTING these parts.

I don't hate CAI's. It's something you put on your vehicle that you enjoy and find significant so I'm going to question it and give my opinion on it -- same as you feel about window visors. Sure, I'll admit it, I don't see the need for a CAI and would never add one. IMO, the factory airbox is fine.

That image was intended as one thing, a simple joke. You can't take a joke? Come'on jeez lighten up a bit! If you put a joke up about window visors I'd find it funny as hell. Be happy

You know me, just so arrogant with my 4 cyl Honda.... Factory air box is decent but K&N makes a good product. Not trying to hijack OPs post here. I feel the same way about mudguards, and side body molding as I do window visors. The function they provide is not worth the decline in aesthetic appeal that comes with it, IMO.

I dig splash-guards.

They're "cool," "sick," "wicked," "crazy," "dope," and functional.

I'm also going to get some window visors for my 9th generation Accord EX as soon as they become available.

I'd really like the have the benefit of a moonroof visor, but I just can't get past the look, at least for now.

Yes to the visors. The AVS in channels look best IMO.

I hate the ones that stick on the chrome part of the trim and stop at the window leaving a partial chrome finish.

If you smoke, visors are a must.
yep. If you must do it, do it right with the channel ones

I've already ordered two different sets of the deflectors for my car from Amazon. First set had scratches everywhere. Second set had a broken deflector. Not to mention, the adhesive was weak. Pretty livid at this point. To anyone curious, it was the in-channel AVS deflectors for the 13-14 Accord Sedan.

Bringing back a long dead thread here. Has anyone used the Well Visors brand of visors for the Accord? Theirs have a chrome strip on them so they don't cover the chrome window surround with black (which I think would look stupid) I had a set on my previous car and they were GREAT, cheap, great fitment, and thicker than the AVS by quite a bit. Of course, they are out of stock until early May right now but hey....

I ended up with the AVS Low Profile with Chrome Trim. The four piece set, they also offer a 6 piece set. They fit great, look great and so far work perfectly, I'm very happy with them.

I have the Weathertech in-channel visors, simply because I'm an undiagnosed OCD and cannot stand the way the OEM visors cover up the window chrome surround. But, I've got to admit, the ones on my new coupe don't fit nearly as tightly as the last ones on my sedan. But, hell, they were $60, which isn't as bad as the last happy hour bar bill I got stuck with.

I had the WeatherTech visors in my '10 Jetta. They looked good & performed well. My only complaint is the way the inchannel visors take up room in the window channel. The windows will detect a blockage & roll down when trying to close them. This does lessen over time, but is very annoying. Also, I notice that the wind noise increased with the WeatherTech visors. I assume all visors will increase the wind noise.

I'm going with the OEM visors for '16 Accord. I don't want to fight the safety sensors.

I ended up purchasing the Weathertech visors cus theyre practical for where i live(104+ degree weather), and the look of the car overall. I dont understand why Honda didnt offer them for the coupe. I own a 2015 EX-L v6 in white and to tell you the truth im really happy to say im the only coupe in my town with them installed. there are sedans with them installed but no coupes, from what ive seen and asked...

i do like the functional side of the visors, but it's kinda over price, almost 150 for a set of 4 pieces of plastic? that's is pricey plastic LOL, if it's around 50+ i would get it.
