I went with the Weathertech window visors versus OEM because I am lazy. The OEM installation appears more complicated (but they would probably be more secure).

What does a vent shade for the hood look like?

I bought the mugen visors 200$ area but well worth it. No rain comes in nice flow of air look noice easy installation.

I have the $25 ebay ones and they are held on ghetto as fuck and I'm pretty sure the 3m tape is fake.

Immediately I regretted not buying the mugen ones or just ones that don't fuck with the weather stripping so there isn't water inside the car when it rains or gets washed

After some research, I decided the Honda window visors & hood deflector to be the best fit & value.
I bought mine from the local Honda dealer as all the online options were more expensive here (Canada), and installed them myself. The dealer install prices will almost double your costs, so you're better off watching the YouTube install videos and buying some beer for yourself.

The Honda ones have lasted 3 years of Canadian weather and automated car-washes without any issues. They will likely last the life of the car.

Another reason buy the Honda ones is related to the rear window visors, which are both taped & clipped-in. From my research many of the after-market options were poorly designed for the rear windows and they tend to fly off...

I've heard good things about the Honda visors.

We've only tried the Mugen visors and, 11 years later, they are still perfect. Whatever you buy, make sure they have the in channel clips and use real 3M tape.

I installed the OEM visors. They aren't real hard to install and they're nearly flush compared to aftermarket ones I saw.
