wind deflector = more noise?

Has anyone with slot in wind deflectors noticed any increased ambient and wind noise coming from the front windows?

Im not sure if its in ny mind or real. Hmm..

I haven't noticed more wind noise with mine but they do rattle against the glass a lot which is very irritating. Ended up taking them off lol

I have factory polycarbonate bonnet and headlight protectors which cause loud wind noise over 100km/h. It would definitely be the case with window wind deflectors.

Crap.
The back windows close with a small thump but the fronts doesn't. I guess theres a small gap in the front then. Hmm anything we can do to mend it?
They do add to the appearance. .

Try self adhesive backed foam (or rubber) tape which is used for preventing drafts. They come in many widths, thicknesses and colours so you can find one for your specific application.
