Installed Weathertech side window visors

I ordered a set of Weathertech side window visors on 1/7, and they arrived yesterday, 1/13. I installed them today after watching the instructional video on the Weathertech web site. The instruction sheet that comes with the visors is good, but the video is much better in showing how to fit the visors properly. The install was a snap, and only took 15 minutes or so. I went with the light tint instead of the darker tint. In my opinion, the dark tint looks really good on a black RAV, but on a silver or white RAV I think the lighter tint looks pretty good:

I think they'll really come in handy this summer when I park in the hot sun. I can leave the windows cracked an inch or so for ventilation without worrying about a sudden rainstorm popping up. Which always happens when I leave my windows cracked.

Very nice. I've never considered window visors before but these have me thinking.

I think I'll be getting a set. With all the rain we're getting, I can't open my window without the inside getting all wet. How much were they?

I'm on the same fence, I would like to get these weathertech window visors since they look really nice compared to the ones I've seen on ebay. I see they're quoted at $99 for all four windows from the weathertech site. How much did you get them for and from where?

I ordered the 4-piece set directly from the Weathertech web site. They were $99 with $15 shipping. I looked all over the web and could not find them cheaper anywhere. Seems like nobody ever discounts them or puts them on sale.

The first day I installed them I had the problem with the auto-up window on the driver's side. The glass would go up and detect the visor as a blockage and would go back down. After carefully nudging the glass up bit by bit I got it to stay closed. Left it like that and 24 hrs. later the auto-up feature is working again just fine. The visor needs time to settle into place and a little warm sunlight seems to speed up that process.

Another thing I like about the Weathertech visors is they are very subtle. They have a low profile, and don't stick out much. They look like they belong on the car, not something that was tacked on later.

Somebody at my workplace has a Trailblazer with the official GM accessory visors. They are the stick-on variety and one on the driver's side rear door has already fallen off leaving the tape behind. Wonder how much the dealership charged him for those?
