I know some people who have taken them off (Kaitlina) because of some problems with the visors. You'd have to ask them personally about what the problems were. I just knew that she and others did have problems.
But other than that, if you install correctly, it should be fine! I'm getting my pair soon.

I have used weathertech on two civics a PT Cruiser and three Accors with no problems at all.... I loke how they fit in the window channell and not that tacky stick on look. I have seen an Accord with the stick on type and they look bad....It really looks like a cheap add on.....

hmmm i'm really on the fence with these visors. i feel like tilting my sunroof will do the same functions as the visors.
Yeah but the visor also add style to the car.. and it's a nice cheap mod.

just installed mine right now, its a really tight fit.. i hear the window sliding across the visor thing when its about to close all the way
Yeah it meant to be a tight fit so that they don't fall off.. If you feel the window is making a cracking noise when you close it, bring the window back down and Do the last step in my DIY careful pull the Visor towards you to set them in place.. and then Leave the window closed for 12 hours and it will go away..

yeah i have them on my 6th gen and really hate it. my tints are peeling because of it :thumbsdow.
I don't know how since the Visors are on the outside and not in contact with the TINT

I don't understand how there are any problem with them, just have to make sure you install them correctly and FELLOW what i put.. and your Set

it goes way.. Just keep in mind that it's not going to close like OEM quite but you will hear it a small bit when you close it..

Did you pull the Visor away from the car to sit it in place?

these look so much nicer than the tape on kind I had on my tacoma 10yrs ago and I totally could use these to keep the cars cool with the windows cracked in florida since it rains for 5mins every day in the spring and summer. :)

The little white letters on the visor, is that a sticker, or actually inked on?
