Nothing new on the subject in over a year, so I will start another discussion on them.  I have had vent visors on all my cars/trucks for years.  I think they add a nice accent to the looks of a vehicle.  I have had both AVS and Weathertech brands.  I did not notice a difference in them.  Does anybody know of any differences in them besides weathertech being over twice as expensive?  Weathertechs have 3 year warranty, avs has lifetime.

 

Can somebody give me a reason as to why I would by the weathertechs over the avs?  I will spend the extra money if there is a valid reason.

Not a big fan of vent visors...make cars look like Grandpa owns it...maybe you're a Grandpa :)   I, personally, have a lot of experience with other Weathertech products and their quality is superior to anything in the market.  I went "low price" in the past and just ended up getting WT in the end.  Not much help I know but it's a thumbs up for Weathertech as a company...their quality, fit and finish is second to none!

Both are made in the USA so you can't go wrong with either. I've never had Weathertech vent visors so I'm not much help here but I've purchased their floor mats for other vehicles and love them. I have the AVS vent visors and Husky floor mats on my FFH and love both. As you know, besides looking good, they serve a great purpose when parked in the sun. I purchased mine at Auto Anything along with a custom window shade that fits perfect and matches the color of the car.

Weathertech - there are a couple clips for the rear deflectors/visors, but other than that they slip in nicely.  AVS has double-sided tape or something that requires the windows up for a period of time as it sets.  Weathertech has none of that at all, although I do recommend keeping the windows up for several hours to get the things to set into place properly.

 

I just had the Weathertechs put on because I drive with the windows cracked a bit.  Invariably I get rain water or splashup from traffic right thru it and into my face.  Now I don't sweat it at all.

 

Weathertech installed ...

I have the weathertech deflectors and have had no problem with them.  It did take about a week to get fully seated and not activate the window down safety feature.  

 

One thing I noticed in the pics posted by thavil and Cobra is the area near the mirror.  The weathertech seems to flow down and cover that area.  I've noticed water flowing over that area in the rain and wonder if the AVS ones are going to give you the same protection.  

 

I added a pic to highlight what I'm talking about.

Hmm... I thought Weathertech was made in the USA too.  While I was out shopping today I took a closer look and noticed this:  Made In Germany

I bought the AVS but after seeing the Weathertechs go down the front piece I wish I would have gotten them
