OT- Drip Rails

Mini rant here.
I'm the kinda guy that likes 'Fresh air' all the time. I always have my drivers window down about 3-4 inches no matter what car I drive. Whether it's 20 f, or 110 f, or light rain. thumbs up My DD is a 2016 Hyundai Sonata sport sedan, which I am Very happy with! Only thing is...There is NO drip rail above the windows. Started looking around at other makes on the road and NONE of them have drip rails. My Vair has em, and when it's raining, no biggie! When I drive my DD, I have to put a small towel on my arm rest to keep the drips off the power window/lock switches.
Just something I think is lacking on newer vehicles.
Mini rant over and out! smileys with beer

I got the window rain diverters (visors) just so I could leave windows open a couple inches when hot or raining. They work like a champ. I have been using them since 1999. First vehicle I had without them was the 1999 Silverado.

Seen some of them. Mostly on SUV's and a few pickups. Are those after-market that can be easily installed by an old ignorant monkey such as I ? smiling smiley

Find a Linux dealer. That is where I got mine. They deal in them.

OEM dealers also have them, if you want OEM parts ($$$$).

Many other places to get them.

Google your vehicle and add window rain guards and see what you get. Some are a snap-in installation and some need double stick tape to tape to the outside of the door. Go for the ones that go into the window track.

And this. (for the 2016 he has J.O.) Wal-Mart independent vendors probably has them for the 2016 also.

Thanx! Botha ya!. At that price, it doesn't seem like the 'Bean Counters' would sacrifice the difference. Wasn't even an option at the dealership...confused smiley

I had a set of stick on's on 2000 Chevy Van. I was concerned about the adhesive, not to worry they were still on tight 16 years later when I traded it.

Same with my 99 Silverado. Dealer pulled them off to sell the truck on used lot. They pull all add-on off as it typically makes vehicles harder to sell, they say. I have the bed topper off my old GMC. It fits my new Silverado. Needed a topper quick and my new one wasn't in town yet. Bought the old one back for a reasonable price. Now I am trying to sell it off. Color is the issue of course. People want me to get it painted before they commit. WRONG.
