This is why I went with the Colgan bra instead. The Weathertech bug deflector kind of spoiled the smooth organic curves of the Murano.Corin said:Well, I took a trip across the state today. I'm not that impressed with the WeatherTech bug deflector. I don't think it reduced the number of bugs on the windshield at all. The wife says it looks goofy, I'm "iffy" on the looks, and it doesn't seem to have any functionality (my hood is already protected with StonGard) so I'm might be removing it. We'll see. I'll give it a few more days.
I was hoping to change the aerodynamics enough with the bug deflector to keep the bugs off my windshield. I don't really care about bugs on my hood/bumper, they can wash off easily. I just don't like it when I have to stop the car driving through central washington because I can no longer see through the bug guts (yes, it gets that bad during certain times of the year).Protector said:There really is no need for the bug deflector with the StonGard because the bugs will clean right off of the film and rock chips are prevented. Why not let the cars natural beauty and color shine through?
Sounds like you would also need to screen off your radiator so it won't get plugged by bugs.Corin said:I just don't like it when I have to stop the car driving through central washington because I can no longer see through the bug guts (yes, it gets that bad during certain times of the year).
There is such a large gap between the hood and deflector already that you would have to have some MONSTER spacers in there. Might work, but then the look would be even worse.grfg8r said:I'm WITH YOU on that Corin! That's why I made a "Condom" out of the Venture Shield for most of the Mo. Whay if you places some rubber spacers behind the deflector to lift the angle up?
I think I'm going to get rid of the bug deflector and just stick with the StonGard. I have a couple people locally that might be interested, otherwise I'll offer it up for sale here.TheGymKid said:Hey Corin... so was the final decision. What kind of bug protection did you end up with on the front of your hood?
