Don't have some personally but want a pair! If you get the ones from AM they are a rubber plastic material and most people that have had them say that these don't rattle because of the material. But they are freaking sweet tho!

AM sells both the ABS plastic and the aluminum rear louvers. I, personally, would get the aluminum set. I had the plastic ones on my old 05 and my buddy has the aluminum set. When parked next to each other, the plastic louvers looked cheap compared to the aluminum louvers. I didn't have any rattling with my plastic set and my buddy says that he doesn't hear any with his until about 75-80 mph.

MRT aluminum louvers are the best looking IMO and they tweaked the newer model to have less/no rattle. I had the old set and it would only rattle when I broke a clip, which usually only happened in winter. The powdercoat looked like new too when I sold that car.

+1...I have them on, had them painted to match the color code of UA Black. I've had them on for over a year and haven't had any issues, no rattle, no nothing.





Before they were painted.

Off topic but how has the blackout panel held up? Any fade? Do you treat with anything (armor all)?

So far so good, I don't put anything on it. It already looks faded, it is a very flat matte black. The Pony is garage kept so it isn't really in the sun a lot, so it hasn't faded any from that. It's just ugly, put it serves it's purpose for me.
