Aftermarket Louvres AM

I'm going to buy a set of louvres from AM. Anyone have any stories? Mounting issues? Maintenance and cleaning? Etc etc?

Ha!

No, I'm only doing the quarter glass on the c-pillars. The back glass will get a dark tint, but no louvers.

When backing up or pulling out sometimes u look out of those windows. But u cant see anything. Also i was going through a touchless car wash abd the dryer blew one off. Now i wash it by hand. The only thing u can really use is the double sided tape. 3m has the best

Thanks. I appreciate the info.

I only hand wash, so that's no problem. And I don't use the quarter windows for anything, even shoulder checks, as I'm a tall dude and it's more hazardous to take my eyes off of the road for as long as it takes me to swing my head around.

I've been driving for a long time. Not bothered about the visibility issues.

You don't realize how much you actually use those little windows until you put the louvers on.
