Despite everything going on around us, one of the pleasures I can count on daily is taking the VN for a drive on the country roads near my house.

We got some nice weather right now that great for driving the window down. But, as I've learned with some other cars, there are better and worse positions for the windows down, especially at speeds over 50 mph.

For example, I learned NOT to leave the back window fully closed with both front windows fully open at high speed. Bad buffeting! I like having the driver's window fully open but only at low speeds around the neighborhood.

So, where are your windows when you drive windows down? Especially at high speeds?

Thanks,
- Joe

I have my windows down 90% of the time, the buffering was driving me mad but my life was changed by discovering the wellvisors wind deflectors. They sit very flush with the car so they're barely noticeable but the buffeting is entirely gone. Ive gone 85 plus miles per hour on highways and no buffering. I roll my windows up anyways because of the extreme wind noise at those speeds, but it makes city driving so much nicer because you can make some nice aggressive pulls every now and then and go just about any speed you want and not worry about buffering.

I find the buffeting my only real complaint about the car, but it is a common thing with very aerodynamic cars. I've been just slightly cracking the windows to get some fresh air but avoid the buffeting.

Thats good to hear, I just ordered them two days ago hoping they would reduce it. Plus the roof has dumped condensation on me several times when I first pull out because of the curved design to our window and the ceramic coating I did, so I am hoping they reduce that as well.

What window visors are you ordering?
Well Visors, they are currently the only ones I have found available. I was trying to hold out for weathertech but they are taking way too long to produce them, and the well visors are very reasonably priced.

Here's the link

OK, I'm intrigued, but have a very basic question to ask. Do the WELLvisors windows deflector rest on top of the glass for each roll down window? Or on the car body above the window?

Thx,

It appears they sit on the frame above the window. One of the members that installed them should hopefully chime in and clarify.

I'm going to take some pictures and document my install when I get mine, so watch for a post if no one does. Tracking shows I should get them Wednesday, so hopefully I will get them by the end of the week.

Yes they mount on the flat black frame around the window with 3M tape and some clips. I mainly got them to be able to have windows cracked while raining but they help with buffeting too.

Been hearing the Supra has the same exact problem too. AMS has these anti-wind buffeting kit for those cars.

Just posting this up in hopes that a shop or vendor for our cars can make a kit like this.

Just play with the rear window. When you get it right the buffeting will stop.
