    I went with the EGR brand (http://egrusa.com/). I have had them for about 3 years and I'm happy with them. OTOH, bought the Weathertechs for our Subaru and think they fit well and look excellent. I don't think you would go wrong with either of these brands.

    I don't have any experience with the Auto Ventshade brand.

    I like my weathertechs. Gets a little tight the last inch or so rolling up the windows though.

    If it is just the factory tint, I have had no issues. I can't speak for aftermarket tint. Also, I clean the area behind the channel (inside which touches the exterior window surface) each time I wash the truck.

    Doesn't affect my tint though. They rub on the bare glass. I have aftermarket tint, no issues yet.

    don't get the avs one, they stick out way to far to be of much use in bad weather or even good weather as you can barely crack them open without getting a windstorm of wind. I am looking for a close fit (not in-channel) like I have on my 2010 Subaru legacy oem's.

    I have the egr in channel shades, love them! Nice tight clean fit. Used to have avs stick on ones, big difference in quality between avs and egr or weather tech. Avs is the suck

    I bought the in-channel Weathertechs, but did not like how the last inch or so rolled up so tightly. I could hear some strain on the electric motor. I returned them. Considering the stick on version.

    My Dad, Uncle and Brother all have the stick on the version for this reason. Many here have no issues with the in-channel or issue with the motor. We just don't care for the potential of the problem I suppose.:notsure:

    Another one for Weathertech. I've had them on about 6 years now, no problems at all. Even the last inch or so is fine rolling up. Only suggestion I would have is that you peel the little sticker off that says Weathertech. Mine has separated into about three pieces and looks like it has become one with the plastic now after all these hot summers.

    Can't stand the look of stick on visors, they stick out way too far and whistle like a bitch up on the highway.

    Anyone have issues with the Weathertech's falling out? I can't seem to get the tape to adhere, especially the rear ones.
