The difference is as you stated, in-channel and tape on. i personally like the in channel ones that i have on my matrix (weather tech) vs the tape on ones (AVS). it is mostly a matter of preference. i didnt like the idea of "tape on" during the time. since it is only secured by tape they can be stolen easily. i had a friend that had an si with the jdm tape on visors and they ended up getting stolen.

i ordered me some seamless vent visors the other day. Its beginning to rain and i hate when i roll my windows down at starbucks and flood my interior. This should help. Also with ventilation.

I've tried to keep quite, but there is one thing people should realize . . .

There are only a VERY few manufacturers of these things world-wide. The best come from exactly TWO companies, regardless of the name or logo on them.
Arguably the best of the two is Autovent Shades (AVS). Their own branded ones are the cheapest for quality there is. Many of the other branded ones are the exact same thing, but with other logos and higher prices for the privilege.
If the vents your looking for look practically exactly like the AVS ones, there is a VERY good chance that they ARE the same thing.

(I can't state my source, but it is reliable and I'd put my own money on it happily.)

sounds good to me, i like the seamless ones, not a big fan of the in-channel ones.. tape-ons just look so much better to me

I have the in channel Weather Tech and have no complaints. Do what makes YOU happy.

AVS makes an in-channel and they also make the seamless. They're either/or, not both.
Ya, after thinking about that for another 2 seconds I realized it would be possible but very foolish (and horribly designed) to do a seamless in-chanel. :clown:

i love these visors. The only thing i can say negative is the ocassional time where the window hits them when rolling up fast. Otherwise, i love them.
haha nice, i cant find any seamless ones on ebay though, only the jdm style ones. but i will keep looking, and hey i think its time you update the pic in your signature haha
