I have got the Climair ones. they just slot straight on. And do not require metal clips inserted into the windows like Team Heko deflectors.

I have the HEKO ones... fit perfect, easy to do. I did use the CLIPS, easy enough. Clips on the HEKO's actually enforce a window channel that is wide enough for the glass, so ensures no strain on the windows. Not sure on the Climair ones... I guess they're good too.

Got mine for the 5 door off ebay for just under £30.

Looks decent.
Any clips / adhesive or simply a push fit 'aided' by carefully closing?

Tape and two clips that go in the window channel you have to pull out the channel rubber clips fit behind.

What are they for? purely cosmetic or serve some purpose such as having the window down a crack when having a fag to stop rain blowing in?

I'm curious myself.
Never smoked personally so not a problem for me, but many's the time I've been waiting for the wife - surprise!! - and there's light rain. I would hope it stops this getting in, permitting the window to be opened as you suggested.

I'm also interested in if there's any increase in wind noise at speed - above 60 mph say.

I have had wind deflectors fitted on every car I have ever owned. I don’t smoke, but they help with ventilation, stops windows condensation, especially when parked up on damp days, stops the rain coming in, stops the wind coming in and cuts down on wind noise when at speed when window is open. Allows for windows to be left cracked open on hot summer days, without triggering interior ultrasonic sensors. And because they are tinted they act as a sun visor to prevent setting sun entering the side window of the car and sun burning the face of you.

Any noticeable drop in fuel consumption?

There designed so that there aerodynamic wind flows over them without creating drag.

Seems like ClimAir don't do them for the 9th. and 10th. gen. Civics.

The only ones I managed to find there is for the 8th. gen. and previous versions.
