Hello everyone.

I just bought my E. It's an 06 EX-P. I really like the vehicle so far, but I am a little disappointed. I love cruising down the highway with my windows down. I find that I cannot do this in my E because all the wind is directed at the side of my head.

Does anybody else have this problem or know of some sort of solution?

I was looking at the weathertech window visors and they go all the way down the front side of the window, maybe that will offer enough of an interference, dunno though, just a thought

Ventshades/visors help somewhat, however opening the sunroof helps even more.

Have you tried opening the back windows while you drive. I leave those and the sunroof open while I drive and I find that the airflow is great and it does not feel like it is bombarding my head. :)

Yep - I crack that back windows and the sunroof and it really helps direct the airflow. I've found that every car with the windows down tends to blow around in your face.

These work. Some of my co-workers accuse me of getting a commission from Weathertech.:smile: Your Element will be a different car.:D

Thanks for the tips guys.

I will give opening the sunroof a shot, and if that doesn't help, I will try the visors.

Diagonal Thought

I open the passenger window and crack open the driver's side rear window for cross ventilation and no direct wind/breeze/air.

I've never had a car that DIDN'T do this. A good solution is to shave your head or go bald. Then you don't have to worry about the wind messin' up your hair.

^^ YES!! I would love to have some old window vents.

I found that if I dont roll my windows down all the way it doesn't feel like I have an air cannon blowing at the side of my head.

In my last car (VW Jetta), I was able to control the air flow through the car by how far I rolled down the back windows... It worked well, but I guess I will just have to get used it it.

:confused: Why won't you listen? I once thought those plastic thingees hanging off the pick-up truck windows were something Bubba did to be cool.

After one year without and three years with... Best $60 you can spend.:smile:
