Re: Slimline weather shields

I don't think I could live without weathershields, not for a looks thing but for the practicality of them, nothing worse than ya windscreen fogging up even with the demister goin full blast and you cant wind down the window cos rain gets in.

Re: Slimline weather shields

I noticed tinted weathershields on a Landcruiser today, the were factory fitted by the looks of it. Definately look a lot better than crappy standard ones.

Re: Slimline weather shields

I personally don't like the big chunky ones that make it harder to claim yer mackers drive through order! I prefer the look of none, but I have found them useful on long trips, especially in the rain...

Re: Slimline weather shields

My car had one on it when I bought it. I didn't like the idea of it at first, but the first time it rained, I thought it was the best thing since buttered bread! It may be old person options, but they do the job.
