AVS in-channel window visors

Who would like to pay $200+ for a set of OEM window visors? AVS has been making auto visors since the 1930's and they just came out with a set for my 2016 Pilot. They look great for only $70. The fit is very tight on the front and the window needs to be raised little by little so the window doesn't auto-reverse itself, but that's minor and anyone can install in 10 minutes. Now I can crack the windows on a rainy day!

Funny that you say it's a minor issue as I would consider that to be a serious design flaw. You're telling me that I can't use my auto up feature on the windows and not only that, I have to pay special attention to them and carefully roll up each one of them and then double check to make sure they actually went up and the anti pinch feature didn't engage? Maybe if I only rolled my windows up and down once a month it wouldn't be a big deal, but we're talking about something most people do a few times a day for 8-12 months a year. Sounds like a huge hassle.

After the first time you close the window there are no further issues and you can put the window up normally.

I've seen AVS visors on many vehicles on the road. Dislike how they bubble out and/or cover up the chrome trim on many rides....looks god aweful. There is no way I'd would go that route. Give me something with the chrome trim on it, like OEM, or a svelte in-channel that weathertech is known for. Being that the later is MIA on this front...there aren't many options. Please post some pics of the AVS ones my friend. I can be wrong of course as I do not own them and they don't post pics of the Pilot models.

These visors go in the channel so you can still see the chrome trim OK, will take a few pics and post, think you might be surprised how good they look!

Thanks for the pics! Would it be possible to get a few more shots from different angles? Strongly considering getting these if you can still see the chrome.

This actually looks pretty nice. A few more pictures from other angles and one facing the entire side of the car would be great. Thanks

Those AVS look great! I have had them on multiple vehicles and never had any issues.

Me too! but I was waiting for Weathertech to make them since I bought the Pilot last July and they are sitting on their thumbs---don't appreciate the wait from supposedly a first class business---

Yeah, Weathertech was been testing them since early December when I called. Told me they should have been available in early January. That didn't happen and we are still waiting..😠

Did you order online? For the life of me I can't find the in-channels on their site.
