I've not been impressed-offside one never fitted properly and was replaced (eventually) as was an apparent bad batch. They still occasionally come out at the base of the window and in my experience are not that great.
Other people rate them so perhaps the quality on my pair is/was suspect. I shall investigate the climair ones next.
Agreed, one of mine fitted sh@te. Messed about with it for ages until it snapped in two.

+ Look good with tinted windows
+ They do work

- If you have opening quarters, bit superfluous as CovKid said
- Bump your head when you forget they are on, when reversing

The extra angled piece at the front do help these ones stay in, unlike the straight ones (hope that makes sense!)

Hi. I'm looking at the Dubflecta ones at the mo. One doubt I have (and it's the main reason I want some) is about the wind noise reduction when driving. The felt has gone on the front windows and I get a lot of wind noise right now on the Mway. Has anyone noticed that they reduce the noise at all?? Ta!!

I have a pair of the dubflecters L-shaped ones if you decide they are the what you want.

One of mine got broke (by me!!) so I bought a replacement - but I decided not to refit

Yeah Rob I need to replace quite a few of the seals on the windows but saving pennies for a re-spray (at which point I'd get the new rubbers, felt etc put in). Looking for a quick fix on the noise prob beforehand if poss. Thought this might be a good one. Thanks!

Ordered some dubflecta ones in November.
Still not received yet. Took my money, ignored my emails until I registered a complaint with PayPal. Then lied through his teeth saying he'd replied to them.

W$nker.

I'm having exactly the same issue now! They took my cash over a month ago via Paypal, have not supplied the deflectors, replied to my emails or answered the phone. Time to register a complaint methinks - although having read this thread (too late) I won't be too fussed if they don't turn up!

Have you got a link to where you bought them from by any cheeky chance? Cheers

I bought some second hand a few years back, the ones that slot into the window across the top and down the front, got rid of them as they obscured my view, they were tinted so clear ones may have been ok.
