    Which is why I spent some $$$ to put some nice bits on my new car

    I got the Twisted Tuning gloss black solution & couldn't be happier

    They flat out work, windows up, down, one up one down, any speed you like :)

    I assume ones of a similar design will work equally as well

    I went with the $8 amazon special and it works great. You can barely tell it's on there and takes about 5 mins to install. This completely eliminated the 40-55 mph buffeting. Unless you have cash burning a hole in your pocket or just have to have your car dripping in carbon fiber, I would save your money for other mods and just go the cheap route here.

    These are the ones I ordered: Hypersonic Black Car Door Edge Guard Trim Molding Crash Scratch Protector 4PCS

    It comes with four of them. Two have Hypersonic logos and two do not. You have to cut about a half an inch on the bottom of them to fit. I used the ones with logos on them to practice on before cutting the ones without the logos. It's a rubber-like material and cuts fairly easily with just normal scissors. Before sticking them to the car, I wiped off the area with isopropyl alcohol to make sure it was all clean.

    wow... what a HUGE difference it makes.. i wanted to be safe and replaced the double sided tape it came with with a 3M (the gray one used for like duckbills, thought it would be stronger) dont want it flying off on the freeway.

    Managed to pick up a set of hypersonic from Amazon. Selling fast like hotcakes.

    Many thanks for the quick fix.

    Credit goes to @CarGuy11 and the others who discovered them. I'm just vouching that it works great! Someone needs to reach out to Hypersonic and show them this thread. They can pre-cut them, label them for A90/Supra MK5 on Amazon, and mark them up $50 haha. Still a great deal compared to the carbon fiber and painted ones going for big money.

    Installed the AMS gloss blacks today ($130). Totally worked for getting rid of the buffeting, though tbh I didn't think it was that huge of an issue. Noticeable sure, annoying... not very. Individual specific I'm sure.

    The AMS pieces were good quality, though I didn't think the fit was amazing. There's a bit of freedom in where you place them, I was expecting it to really just lock in only one way. You need to be careful when the sticky's exposed to pick the right spot (duh, but more delicate than I expected). I think the 3m-ish tape being used is thicker than it needs to be, might be good to try a thinner doublesided tape, if there are any strong enough.
