Rear window louvres

I have a 2013 Camaro and am considering buying the rear window louvres. Any negative comments from anyone who has them?

I have the MRT louvers ... I love the look ... had mine painted to match the car ... I think I have pictures on my build threat

Negatives
... they do add a small amount to the already negative rear window visibility ... imo much worse at night

... as long as the pads stay affixed you are in good shape ... if the work loose (not a big problem, but I have had it happen twice in about a year and a half) ... then, if they do, be sure to reset them in the right place because if they are off just a little, the latching mechanism becomes a PITA

All in all, I really like mine and would definitely do it again

Thanks! Are they easy to open after installation to regularly clean the back window?

yes mine are metal ... as long as the clips are aligned correctly they are easy to open n close ... oh one other thing, don't ever close the trunk with the clips open

some people say they look "Mustang-ish" but I love mine

Also, I think mine looked fine in black, but I really like them to match and think they look even better
