    To louver or not to louver

    Hey guys,

    Just got these in and installed, what are your thoughts on the look and the fitment? Wanted to gather some opinions and open feedback that won't be taken personally., I rarely seen these on any focus.

    Thanks! Appreciate the honest feedback.

    It's not for everyone, my guess is the non-functionality of it.

    I think they look cool and seem to fit well I wouldn’t spend a whole lot on them though.

    They're cheap. Surprisingly cheap, given the fitment and overall look.

    Lots of different styles, more fins, different shapes, carbon fiber too if you want to go that route.

    It kind of reminds me of the old mustang fastbacks with the same idea in mind. Except those were functional?

    Can you provide the link on where you got it?

    I was checking that spot out for the past two days when I drive if it would be a blind spot when that's installed.

    When they added these on older cars, the idea was to reduce the exposed glass to block out the sun and some privacy (kinda like how blinds work on a regular window), plus it made for a nice styling accent. Tinting does a similar effect, and to me, makes for a more uniform and cohesive design for modern cars.

    I like the idea of it, but not too crazy about the execution of that particular quarter louver. Combined with the dark tint, it looks like somebody just stuck on some tiny vents on the middle of the window. Maybe if it covered the whole window kinda like the Mustang ones?
