Opinions on rain deflectors

Here in Vancouver it rains non stop. I hate driving with my windows up, I like to get some fresh air. I had my windows down a bit yesterday and today I found lots of water marks on my leather seats. I never had a rain guard on any of my previous cars so I'm not sure how good they work but they sound like a no brainer for my situation. Only thing I might not like is the styling of them. I've seen some that are low profile and don't stick out as much as others but I'm guessing they won't serve their purpose like the big ones. Any toughts on this and if anyone is using one I would appreciate it if you could post some pics. Thanks

Rain guards.

I had mine put on as soon as I bought it. Love them. I dont know if you can see them clearly on this picture or not. I will send a better one in the morning.

I think they'll stick out like a sore thumb. Literally. I never like the looks of them myself. But that is only my opinion.

I would say they help keep water out better and cut down on wind noise.

Thanks Daryl & gt1120 for the photos. They dont look too tacky to me. Can't notice them on a black car but bright ones like mine or red candy are more visible. I have to try one of those universal ones locally and if i dont like it, just return them.

Btw by that do you mean you still get water inside but not as much?? Because my purpose to get one was to completely eliminate any water coming inside the car on light or heavy rain

Because of the way the windows are on these cars you can't put the deflectors as low as you can on other cars. I don't know how far you want to have your window open but I think you can go 3-4 inches while driving and not get anything into the car.

There are just some things that should never be put on a Mustang, and rain guards is one of them.

I saw them up close on GT1120's car and I really didn't think they looked bad at all.

They are useful but look very bad in my opinion. I wouldn't install them on my car.
