    Like the window thing? Black plastic trim above the window? How would you open the door? Roll down the window every time you open the door??

    Do not put those on your car. Look terrible and make no sense being on an sn95.

    I tried them in a car once, I didn't like how they jammed into the window track I figured there would be increased wear & tear there plus they squeaked badly unless the window was rolled up tight! Which defeats their purpose! LOL...Maybe I got a cheap brand or something. ??

    What are even the purpose of those things? So you can drive with your windows down in the rain?

    Yeah you can crack the window a little bit while it raining or while you are on the interstate and it makes the noises a little more bearable. I have them on my work truck, and I have no problem with them on trucks. On mustangs though, the way the windows are designed you can kind of crack it and still not get wet. I don't think they will work well on our cars.

    I'm still stuck wondering how you would open and close the doors?!? Our doors don't have a frame around the window which is where rain guards attach.

    I thought they were only really popular with smokers? Who else cares about a window open in rain or high speeds?

    Must be a coupe thing because as soon as I crack the window in my car when it rains, the interior gets soaked.

    They work alright on vehicles where the window rolls up into the door, I'm still confused on how the would even work on a sn-95 where the window isn't framed by the top of the door.... OP you should post up some photos of what you have and where they are supposed to sit on the pillar
