Hi all,

Thought I would post this for anyone one who is a picky git just like me. Basically I have been looking for some gen4 wind deflectors that slot into to window frame rather than the genuine Suzuki ones that sit on the outside of the paintwork(I'm not a fan of those) after doing some searching I've finally found some! I have attached images of both types so you can see the difference if my explanation isn't to clever. I'll have to give an update on quality and ease of fitting once received. The link is below from where I purchased them from.

Cheers,

They look good, Joe, and I will be interested to read your comments on quality/fitment, etc.

In fact I had been looking at these, but they are bit too bulbous. Somewhere halfway would be good.

Hi!

Personally I'm not keen on how the Suzuki ones look, especially on lighter colour variants. The other thing is that they don't go to the bottom of the window frame which on previous cars this has allowed rain to get I to the cabin whilst driving. The other thing is that they sit on the paintwork which is probably absolutely fine but it's a bit finger nails on a chalk board for me. It's me just being a picky sod really and I'm glad someone has decided to manufacture the clip in type ones!
