Default Side Window Deflectors

I just bought a 2014 crosstrek and want to install side window covers front and back. I did some searching and it seems that there are a number of options. I plan on having the car for a long time so price is not my main concern. What are your recommendations as to brand and mounting styles?

I just installed the OEM window deflectors on my 2016 and I'm quite happy with them, how they look, and ease of install. I found a genuine set for under $90 so the price was right, too.

I didn't love the look of the WeatherTech ones

I have OEM's on our 2015 and 2016. I've used WeatherTech both in channel and stick on with other cars with no issues. Like the OEM's better.

Just installed the OEM shades on my 2019. They fit perfectly if you DON"T use the guide clips and let the top edge of the shade be almost flush with the door top edge. The ends will also be flush and the whole appearance will be unified and not look like an "add-on accessory".

Can't get a good pic because not enough contrast betweent black door trim and black deflector. It looks like the deflector is part of the trim, as I stated. Try to test mount it yourself without the clips (spacers) which are hard to remove after they are attached to the deflector. Using the spacers just lowers the mounting by about 1/2" from not using them. They are large enough that this amount won't affect the performance of the defectors.

What I also have is OEM. I asked the dealer to install it after buying it and no sign of any problem until now.

OEM looks the best and they're super easy to install. Took me maybe 30 minutes to do all 4. I have them on my 2016
