They are installed using clips and tape. With both it feels very secure to me. I did a lot of research on the 3M automotive adhesive used on these and it seems to have very positive reviews. I guess only time will tell, but they feel and appear high quality to me. I'm also a little worried about the harsh Texas sun drying out the adhesive over time. I'm glad I found these though because I'm very picky about aftermarket parts for something like this. I had genuine Honda window visors on my previous vehicle and these seem very similar in quality.

Wondering what the advantage is of using window visors? I'm not familiar with them.
Yeah for me it's mostly looks. I think it adds a sportier look. They do provide function as well if you want to crack your windows in the rain. I've heard they can make a difference with wind noise, but I didn't notice a difference. The Bolt is just so quiet already even at high speeds compared to my previous ICE vehicle.

I installed these about two years ago, they are holding up well. I didn't buy them for the looks, but rather to allow me to leave windows open an inch or so on hot days, it helps keep the cabin from overheating. Also nice in rainy weather, can crack windows to keep fog off the windshield without letting rain in.

I have been through car washes a few times, plenty of high speed driving, no signs of stress.

Late post, but I recently installed window visors from Wellvisors on my 2021 Bolt. I think they look great! I especially like the chrome strip at the top to match the trim. 馃憤

We have used these on various cars for several years. The clips are steel, and will rust, and aren't necessary anyway. Very handy for keeping the car a little cooler in summer, and to clear smoke/odors in the wet. Apply to perfectly dry, uncontaminated surface.

Here on the wet coast it would be nice to be able to crack the window open a bit without getting rain in the car. And if you could leave them open a crack in the summer without it being visible it would help keep the car a little cooler.

Hi @SHLBHRRS @Sean Nelson @Lite2 @Duke Woolworth @ARob @TheGodlessVegan @jaymac!

I've never had window visors to deflect wind or rain. I'm curious how you're feeling about them now after a few years. Are they still living up to your expectations? Would you still buy them? I just got an EUV, and am tempted so try to crack my windows open while maintaining some efficiency instead of running the interior ventilation system. That said, I presume just using the interior ventilation system (without heat) would be the most "efficient" route instead of opening windows to begin with. I appreciate your thoughts. Thanks!
