I plan on getting AM's MMD Rear Louvers. What's the difference between these and the aluminum ones? Which do you think look better? Are the MMD's pretty tough? (against weather and etc)
Some like the abs plastic look and others prefer the aluminum. I'm not sure but I believe you need to use a ratchet to remove the ABS from the window for cleaning and the whole thing comes off. The aluminum is hinged, has 2 clips at the bottom, and uses prop rods to hold it up for cleaning.
Some people have complained about the aluminum rattle. Ive also heard complaints about the ABS rattle. Ive never had that problem with speeds over 150... They've been solid.
My only concern with ABS would be with sun fade over time. The aluminum ones are powder coated and still look brand new... except for those few chips from flying rocks... Someone was blowing debris in to the street with a massive parking lot blower.
It really depends on your preference. Plastic look vs aluminum look. Ive also seen some painted to match the car.
