So the door edge guards really work? Interesting, i think i may take this approach, did anyone actually apply it to the door edge or just throw out the spare two?

They work very well and the gloss black color matches perfectly. It's a nice, sleek look. They actually look OEM in my opinion. Not sure why more people don't at least give it a try before spending so much more on some of these other, often ugly, options. At $8, just throw them away if you aren't happy with it. Spend the money you save elsewhere. Like wheel spacers, ZL wheel well flaps, Weather Tech matts/decals, CF interior pieces, A91 stripes, etc.

I just threw away the two extras that had the company logo printed on them.

until a certain MPH from what people said. So they don't work 100% like ours do.

I tested mine up to around 70-75mph with no issues. No need to try any faster. In fact, once I get to 55 or 60 I put the windows up anyway. Just too loud and not enjoyable at higher speeds.

only mentioned it because several people who installed the ebay/amazon ones said it themselves publicly that the noise comes back over a certain speed. it was either this thread or one of the others. I cant remember where.

I might pull the trigger today on this. What did you use to trim the pieces? I see on the store page that it comes with 3M tape. Is that true? I think I read earlier in this thread that it wasn't 3M tape.

I'm glad I stumbled on this. I was about to plop down $130+ on another solution.

Scissors will do. They have 3m tape on the back, so make sure the spots you're going to apply them to are cleaned with alcohol, and a little heat applied won't hurt either. Super easy.

I did the amazon $9 door edge fix but let me say it didn't get rid of the issue 100%. I would say maybe about 90% of a fix. I'm hoping Toyota fixes this on a future model and then we can all swap our factory ones with OEM ones from Toyota.

DO IT! Best ten bucks I have spent on this car. Actually, it is the only thing for this car you will find for ten bucks . But it totally worked! It should be on some life hacks post on FB.

The door edge guards work up to 65 mph with the driver window alone or both windows open. Interestingly it does not work at all with just the passenger window open. Also, above 65 the effectiveness rapidly diminishes. Given the incredible torque with the e50 tune it is difficult to resist the temptation to briefly blast up to 70-75 in normal traffic. at which point the buffeting is substantial. Worse yet is entering the freeway from an onramp at 85-90.

I got to test the YSWY edge guards on the highway over the weekend. Up to 80mph, I got no buffeting with both windows down. With driver’s window down I got minor buffeting over 70mph, and with passenger window down I got a bit more buffeting over 60mp. I’ll have to retest passenger window next time my wife rides with me. Considering that practically every sports car and SUV I’ve ever owned has had buffeting to some degree or another, this is the best $10 I’ve spent on any car.

Your wind pressure might vary.

I tried rolling with the $9.00 fix but hated how they looked like a $9.00 fix on a 60K car. So I ended up plopping down the $130.00 for the gloss black wind deflectors.

My thoughts exactly, it is a 98K car here to put "cheap stuff" on/in it seems counter intuitive to me

I have some Twisted Tuning gloss black ones, they weren't cheap, especially factoring freight over to here but they absolutely work & are basically invisible on the car :)

Glad you like them. That was our goal with them to make them so they are barely noticeable
