I've got the Team Heko ones. I do find that they seem to suck air in and cause an updraft rather than stop it from coming into the car. So if you flick your !Removed! ash out it offen gets sucked back in and hits the passenger. Apart from that, they do look nice

I live in a country where every car of every make has them fitted. They do look good but to be honest I can see no use for them (having had them for the last 7 years)

You can open the window slightly when its pi55ing it down without getting wet, whilst also being refreshed by a cooling breeze ;-)

Trying to link you to the ones I got but the seller doesn't seem to have em in stock for the focus at the moment cause I can't find an active listing.

Maybe message em asking if they have any?

I would recomend putting them on. Open the window a little and they allow air into the car with little noise and draft that you would get without these being fitted and the do look cool.
