They do a far better job with the wind since they are higher and they come on and off in about 20 seconds. Just my .02.
I was able to convince my dealer to throw in the installation of the wind deflector at no cost when I bought the car (asked for that after I had a firm price already, so they wouldn't work it up into the price). Only thing I don't like about it is the fact that the one on my 2007 had trunk mounted rails to store the deflector when not in use under the trunk lid, the new one folds then goes into a sleeve that then has to be stored somewhere. Personally, I just leave it on all the time since visibility is not really affected too much by its presence.
