Review for the SickSpeed louvers:
The louvers are actually light weight flexible plastic. Not fiberglass like some people thought. It comes painted in glossy black. However it looks like the plastic wasn't properly finished before painting because you can see some tiny waves and bumps when the light hits it just right. Still it's not a deal breaker. Just something I noticed.
Metal brackets are provided to stick on the rear window (via 3M double sided tape) and they have a threaded hole in them to screw the louvers down to. Among the brackets are two which bolt down with the trunk hinges are so rest assured it won't fly off your car. The thing that annoyed me was that after a day or so a few of the brackets would detach from the window. And yes, I did clean the window with alcohol and even used a Vivid Vinyl adhesive promoter. To make them stick firmly I had to slightly bend the brackets to conform to the shape of the curved back window, use 3M adhesive promoter this time around, replaced the 3M tape with "permanent" gorilla tape, and applied a little heat when sticking them back to the window. It's been a few days now and everything seems to be holding really well.
Visibility from the rear view morror is still really good (see pics).
In all I would really recommend these louvers because of the price point and build quality. Sure there are some imperfections but I'm talking very minor. I'd give them a 8/10 since I had to replace the tap with something stronger.
