SHR ones are still by far the cleanest and nicest looking. Close runner ups are any of them with sharp angles and no rounded edges, like the MMD one's AM sells with the 3 louver cuts. Anything rounded doesn't match the +10 body.

The louvers from SHR are definitely the best looking, but I'm not willing to remove the quarter glass on a brand new car to install them. The DG Custom's are my next favorite so I'll probably get those.

Do the SHR louvers have glass or something on the back side to replace the window? Or is it just open? That would suck in the rain

They are a molded clear plastic louvers... No holes. Painted such that the louver part exposes the clear (tinted) plastic.

Folks that are interested in these should really go to the link and read.

"Do the SHR louvers have glass or something on the back side to replace the window? Or is it just open? That would suck in the rain"

At $175.00 a pop, no one would buy "open" louvers that allow rain water in!

Got mine from AM unpainted then went to ford and had em painted to match. It does take away the view when backing up and turning so I may run over a Honda one day, but who cares about Hondas these days.

I'm scared to get the ones where you have to take your windows out.

How do you have more louvers lol I just bought a pair off you less than a month ago... And for anyone thinking he is trying to sell the same louvers twice, the one's I bought from Atrav83 were a different style... I will also add that my transaction with Atrav was easy and painless, part was in excelent condition and as described, I would buy from him again any day.

Get the SHR ones or dont bother with anything.
Why would you slap on with tape some louvers over your glass?
Just tint it at that point or do it right.
