or

the ones from 3dcarbon: http://www.3dcarbon.com/style_kits.a...=2&l3=12&l4=24

or

NONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry, I don't know how to create a poll! Thanks!

I'd go with the first ones.. And being that your car is white the pre-painted just match pretty good

Hmm interesting!The SHR's are the ones that you have to remove the glass? If they are, I'm going to count your vote as option #3 being "no louvers"!

I use to have the ones you posted from the American Muscle Site, but Took them Off and replaced them with the Factory ones a friend gave me. The only Thing that sucked was when i Took them Off, it was a PITA to take Off the 3mm tape and its residue. Had to use some brake cleaner to make this process a Little easier. I prefer factory ones because it sticks directly to the window and i can easily take them Off every Time i Wash the Car and have Easy Access to clean Those side windows (could Not do it with your louver option one, unless i were to Take them Off every Time i washed the car and er-installed with 3mm Tape). The 3dcarbon Looks similar or probally is the Same as the factory ones.. Overall this is just my experience and maybe someone else has had a better experience with window louver Option One. I think the 3dcarbon is easier to Deal with and easier to See Out Off as well while driving.. Anyways GL!!!

My signature still has the First louvers i had.

JB04GT,

I love your 13', The white is so clean! I don't think you can go wrong with any of your three options. It looks super clean without them, But I think a set of our louvers would look really nice on there. AM's louvers are Made of OEM quality ultra-durable high impact plastic for it's long lasting durability, these Quarter Window Louvers are painted with the same base coat and clear coat urethane paint Ford uses on the exterior of your Mustang for a perfect color match.

I hope this helps, best of luck on your decision. Let me know if you have any questions!

-Dan

@UBER: With double sided velcro. When I was given the Factory Louvers, they already came with velcro installed on the louvers itself. However, I had to purchase the same style velcro to attach to the windows. Here's a link which shows a pic of the louvers I currently have on now.

Not as flushed as the SHR, but I wanted to keep my windows...
