I always drive with the windows shut so cant see the point unless you smoke.

Re: Wind deflectors mk2 sprt

I've got some (pics attached to this post)

Definitely worth the investment. I'm in the similar boat to above. No air con or sunroof, so i drive with my window (drivers side) down quite a lot. Now it doesn't get rid of the wind noise altogether, the noise i used to get at like 40, i now don't get til like 70+(10% )

Team Heko ftw!

EDIT: Pics later, neither gallery nor attachments are working for me. And god forbid that I upload to an external host

Re: Wind deflectors mk2 sprt

I also have a set mounted on my car.
Team Heko brand sold by J&J Automotive (its on Google).

I normally drive with my windows open (summer or winter). These have helped with both the noise and not getting wet when it rains

Re: Wind deflectors mk2 sprt

Yeah I was also thinking about getting those from Team Heko, but I still have to find a place where they sell them. J&J's website is giving me an error, so will have to try eBay then. I think Team Heko's are one of the nicest.

Re: Wind deflectors mk2 sprt

I agree with the above...

Wind noise is reduced and you can drive on the motorway with the windows down and you only get a nice breeze, rather than without where you get a hurricane!



Just need to get front tints

Re: Wind deflectors mk2 sprt

I have wondered also about getting some wind Breakers for mine too
No AC no Sunroof - and fans dont blow cold - they blow muggy warm air

Also how easy are they to fit?
Do they just simply push up and in to the windows seal?

Re: Wind deflectors mk2 sprt

The Team Heko are dead easy to fit.
In essence, they slide up into the rubber channel. They are 'fixed' by 2 (or more) u shaped spring metal clips that are lodged into place, inside the rubber channel, with a small screwdriver. Don't really need the clips, but nice to have as added insurance. Nothing shows on the outside
Taking them off is just as easy.
