We all know that it’s a PIA to crack open an S550 window for fresh air when it is raining or has rained, because the whole interior door panel and your seat will get drenched with incoming rain water off the roof line...

I saw these exterior visors on eBay and was wondering if anyone has ordered a set or installed them yet. Any “real life” experiences with them from an installation, performance or functional perspective?

The design looks nice and their low profile as well:

I had the weathertech version of these on my GTI, they work, but it's also almost completely pointless, unless you have your window cracked, forget to roll it up, and it rains. Or just want to leave it cracked all the time. My main issues are that they almost always add extra wind noise inside the cabin, and secondly they deform the weather seal over time unless they're they stick on with double sided tape.

So, not completely helpful since it doesn't apply to this car, but that's my experience.

Aren't your complaints exactly what these are for? It's for having your windows cracked open while there is rain (cooler temps, don't need to run AC) or if you want to leave it open slightly all day without needing to worry if there is rain (lets the air run through to keep it fresh and not quite as hot just sitting in the sun).

These don't look like they touch the seal either though and are 3M so addresses two of your complaints.

Definitely interested in feedback anyone else might have on this particular set though, looks low key enough but almost like it's too small to really be able to open the window much.

I believe the design is so that water or moisture will transfer from the roof line or A-pillars and extend outward past the normal path water would follow (right onto the door panel or into interior). Usually as we all know, even if the window is cracked, just a spritz from the windshield washer and a wipe of the blades will transfer water right into the cabin...

If these are installed and as low profile as they seem, it’s an extension of the roof line just enough past the ledge of the door. If the water comes off the A-pillars or roof line, it seems that these visors are preventing the water (from rain, moisture or windshield washer) from just dumping into the cabin.

I’m really curious myself what these look like up close, in person and how they really function.
