I feel that they look nice, they have reduced road noise, and they block the sun from shining on your face from the door window.

I've seen some listings on eBay for the Heko saying "The product is not suitable for cars with automatic mirror folding system"
I have Hekos and power folding mirrors, they don't interfere with each other at all. I've got mine backed with foam tape and they don't deflect the wing mirror panel.

Hadn't thought of that one James. I'm a smoker as well, but rarely smoke in the car.

Sorry just noticed that the door mirrors do touch the deflectors slightly when folding but doesn’t interfere with it in any way.

I found the rear ones were loose until I put the clips in. They wouldn't stay in place and would just fall off. But the clips hold them firmly.

Yes they do.. however the tape after a 6 month try did not stuck properly and now it holds only from the clips.. Let's hope that this happened only to me...

with Mugen window visors installed



​​​​​​​




was initially gonna get the EOS ones (?), the one with the accentuated curves ...but read about many fit issues and that you had to modify them, so went with the second best option, the Mugen ones.
Costly, but look good and easy install.

Downside, more noise on highwayspeed with the windows slightly open at the same postion compared without them installed.
But I assume increased windnoise with the windows slightly open is the case with all window visors.
