Hey everyone, i was just wondering if anyone knows if they make any vent visors for the 3 yet, the ones that go over the door windows. I find these things are really great when you want to crack the window open just a small amount but not let in rain or to much wind..

I could swear that it is an option mentioned in the sale brochure. I have a set on my Toyota RAV4, works great, just as advertised. However, the smoked acrylic make the A-pillar much wider making left turns somewhat of an adventure until you get used to it.

Oh yeah, boy do i know that bluntman. I have them on my explorer and they made the A pillar so wide. The Pillar was wide enough as it was but adding that made me scared to turn left. Actually my bro, when driving my explorer almost hit someone becuase it became such a big blind spot. Even after all these negative i still love them. Its just a matter of getting used to them, like you said. I'll check the brochure and ask my dealer. Ill let everyone know what i find.

I stand corrected, the ventvisors aren't listed in the brochure, maybe not even on the (Canadian) website.

WeatherTech has some "optically opaque" ventvisors that help with the "blind spot" problem. As an added bonus they aren't adhered with 3m tape like most ventvisors; somehow they slip underneath the window weatherstripping.

I looked on Japan Parts but I didn't see these little wind guards... could someone provide a direct link?

Also, I absolutely love those turn signals on the side mirrors. That's badass.

I'm interested in their brand (WeatherTech) because most PT Cruiser people have them and they fit in the door sill vs tape.
I'm disabled and have to use full service car washes, and don't trust tape to stand up to those fabric brushes without eventually coming off.

While I also like the look of the WeatherTech shades, my buddy had them on his '01 Dodge Ram 2500 and they were scuffing the outside of the window where the shade rubbed the glass. Just something to watch out for.

I don't like on cars, they only look right on trucks. JMHO
