I've been looking into some window visors for the GT but I can't seem to find any that I like. Weathertech makes a real nice low profile set but they aren't available for the hatchback...yet.

These aren't fat and bulgy like the OEM ones or the sets you find on eBay. My friend has a set on his Mazda3 and they're really slick. They fit like OEM but are way more stylish.

Lets show Weathertech there are people that want them! Please take 30 seconds to fill out this product request page (you have to manually input the car because they don't have the GT in the drop down menus):

Wow, I didn't realize the prices for weathertech visors. Had a set years ago for a VW Golf and they were maybe $50 or something along those lines. I guess I just assumed all the ones I see listed in the $50-$60 range have been weathertech. Didn't realize they cost more than double that! ohmy.gif

I've been looking at these visors but I don't know anyone that has purchased them. For $46 including shipping if I get a set I will probably just try these out and see if I like them.

I will put a request in at Weathertech to help you out though! thumbsup.gif

Part of the reason they arent as "bulgy" is due to them fitting inside the window channel rather than flimsy 3M tape onto the door frame.

Not sure where you see in channel. Look closely at the picture (of a 2011 Elantra) and you'll see that its stick on by how they overlap the B pillar.
And it says "Tape On Application Provides A Finished Look"

Those are a little better than OEM but if you fill out that form on the eBay ad, you'll see that they don't offer them for the Elantra GT. They still don't look as nice as the Weathertechs do either, imo.

I bought the WeatherTech in-Channel flush mount
front set for my 2013 LTD.

They are nice and seem as though they are going to last
without coming loose.
