Saw some aftermarket ones on fleabay and I thought do they actually  do much and will I have the windows down on a hot day instead of aircon.

 

Truth is I don't know, are they are a worthy add-on?

I bought some Heko ones for my MK8 specifically to have the windows open a few inches for ventilation without water dripping all over the switches on the door every time it rains.

They worked for that, look ok too.

Does anyone have a link to deflectors that fit the Mk7 Tourer?  I've not seen any that fit the rear doors on the tourer.

Heard that Climair deflectors are pretty good.

 

Handy to have the window slightly opened when raining or for smokers.

Thanks for the link.  Heko seems to be made in Poland and also sells directly from their website.  Of course postage to out here costs as much as the deflectors, but what can ya do..

The heko ones off ebay are less than £30 including postage and fit well.

Got mine from here:

I also bought a set for my brother who has a Mazda and they fitted with no worries.

Delivery is only free to UK addresses.  I get a big red "does not post to Australia" notice when I look at that page.  

 

I can easily buy 2 local front deflectors as the sedan shape is identical.  And then I'd only need 2 not-so-awkwardly-shaped rear deflectors to that would send fairly easily via standard post, ordered from the UK. 

 

However, the brands available here are different from those sold in the UK, which means it is highly unlikely that I would end up with  matching front and rear tint if I did it that way.
