  • What do you think of wind deflectors ?

    Yes, it made a massive difference for me, especially on motorways etc. Also nice to have windows open a bit in rain without getting wet.

      I have them fitted to a Corsa B 5dr & they are pretty good.
      The only problem I have though, is when you put the drivers
      window up automatically, it comes back down as it senses
      an obstruction.

          You need to "reset" the window's ECU so it can re-learn how far the window needs to go up.
          There are a few ways to do it. I disconnected battery for a few minutes then reconnected.
          Hold the button so the window goes to the bottom then stops, and then do the same with going back up and it'll stop there automatically in the future

          I quite like deflectors. They help let some fresh air in without as much wind noise or rain. Good for if the windows steam up as well and the heaters aren't enough

              Good tips. I was thinking about these as like mine open but weather is always ****. 30 is quite expensive like and wonder how easy they are to fit?

              Or is 30 fair enough on. 3door and is fitting a doddle?

                If you usually like to drive with the window down a little i'd recommend them a lot.
                Obviously they don't help at all if the window is down lower than the deflector.
                Easy to fit as well.

                  They get in the way when looking out on bends and roundabouts? As I'm quite large for the car lol.

                  What's different about standard , smoked and SRI as seems to be different ones on eBay.?

                    I couldn't imagine them getting in the way unless you painted them black

                    my windows are already tinted so itd have to be a light smoked effect.

                    well it seems corsa B's deflectors don't fit nor do 5 door Corsa C's

                    seems to be quite specific to me.

                      I got SXI tint which is probably not actually tinted so not sure what I should get? Would like it to be darker to match the black paint but see through

                      Only one seller it seems in eBay abd doesn't provide different images for the different listing so bit confused.

                        Id go for the dark smoked but its down to preference really, i too have a black SXI so thats why id go for them.

                        your not half wrong about pics, need some different angles etc to see if they are too dark..

                              nice one bud get a pic up once fitted , i have just had some aero wipers arrive today, i thought that was a little more important than wind deflectors atm lol,

                              still on my list of things to get, but id be happy with second hand ones atm if anyone knows of any
