Seem to get a lot of road noise on mine and dropping the window just a few mm improves it a little so some must be poor window seals or summat so my theory is deflectors will bypass them completely I hope

I have them on all 4 doors on both mk2 zs cars, no real difference windows up but that's not their purpose. Great if you want window down a touch while driving when it's wet as it helps stop windows steaming up plus you don't get buffeted by the wind. Wort 30 for 4 windows anyday.

if anything i found they increased wind noise slightly with the windows up, with them down is a different story though, and as said above they are brilliant in the wet

Most of the wind noise is from the wing mirrors as this was a warranty fix if any new owner complained. The noise is from the joint swivel & was later fixed by a different plate with the front facing gap filled. According to RAVE. So if you have a gap at the front, you need the upgraded plate.
