Window visors, what do you guys think?

So guys, I've got a question. Who you guys prefer the oem window visors, or none at all. Personally I like the look of the car with window visors, make it look unique and sharp. I need your guys opinion!

I have a set of official Honda accessory window visors on my Taffeta White 07 SE V6 on both the front and rear windows. They are black and I like how they look on my vehicle contrasting with the white color. However, I bought them not make my car look "sick" (I guess us old guys would say "cool" instead) but more for the fact that I can crack the windows during the summer and let some of the heat out of the vehicle while it is parked without having to worry about the interior being drenched by the occasional thunderstorm. You can also crack the windows while driving with them and get some air moving w/o being blown away by open windows if you don't want to use your a/c. So I got them more for practical reasons than aesthetic reasons. But yes,they also look good IMHO!

I like the function of them. I go the Mugen visors and they keep the wind and water out which is crucial here in Oregon because it rains a lot. When I added the visors I felt like it killed the look of my OEM wheels, and so did my friends.
Not a huge fan of the look.

Why do you all put these on? I dont have them and I certainly dont get "rain water" in my windows and doors. I think they look like one of those accessoried-out conversion vans where they put every conceivable accessory on it they can.

BTW Im in Florida, it rains all the time here.

Because we want to. Why do you put a cold air intake on your car?

Without the visors I HAVE gotten rain inside the car. With them on I can crack the windows an inch, get fresh air, and keep snow/rain out.

Please tell me more about these magical weather anomalies that prevent water coming through open windows.

IMHO, the ones that fit in the channel look the best.

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.

Lets see, my CAI adds (albeit minimal, but great sounding) performance, is hidden from view, and doesnt add any tackiness to the exterior of my car. I tend to keep my windows rolled up when it rains. I turn on that button that says A/C.

Your opinion my friend. Some of us like a little fresh air and not air pumped through the HVAC system.

Opinion given, like the OP asked for.

Man you belong on ********. Whats with you hating on a damn CAI? Since you're so into fresh air, you don't see the benefit of more fresh air going into my engine? Do you know how many members in the forum have the very simple mod of a CAI? Just because I don't see the need for window visors you start attacking me because I have a cold air intake? You're not even the OP so why so touchy? Get a life.
