I fitted these quality Climair wind deflectors today. They certainly seem well-constructed and are a perfect fit - no clips provided or needed. Not the cheapest, but they look and feel the part.

Stickers were a sod to remove mind.

just fitted the exact same ones to my Mii, and the extra tenner over team hako ones is worth it just because they don't need the clips which seem a faff and look like they could scratch the windows.

Very nice. Where did you buy these from? I looked on there website but couldn't see an option for the up/citigo or mii.

Also do they actually work and how good? Do they keep wind from blowing into the rear at the passengers?

What purpose do these deflectors serve? Are they for smokers?

I bought mine direct from the UK stockist - link below. They are also available on eBay - link also below. if you have a 3 door, you'll need to use a search engine. 

As for effectiveness, I haven't tried them in anger - it rained straight away and the window needs to be kept closed for 24 hours. The reports and feedback I read (for the up! too) were positive.

If only 'peel off' was the right phrase. They are well stuck down; presumably to reinforce the advertising.

Autoglym Tar Remover and a finger nail has seen them come off; no scratches or residue left, but not a 5 second removal job.

They primarily allow the window to be ajar whilst on the move; negating wind noise and rain ingress.

Aesthetically, I quite like the look of them too.

Do they stick in place then seems you say you have to leave them 24h?

Mine is a 3 door so would need ones to suit.
