Rain Guards

The horrible truth that these cars literally leak water directly onto you if there is even a drizzle is hope for me that people have found working and fitting rain guards/...

Any recommendations or links? It rains daily in Pittsburgh and I'm tired of getting soaked from a cracked window!

If you don't get water in the cabin if you open the windows whilst it is raining you probably have a unicorn X1.

I didn't put 2 and 2 together with the cracked window meaning you had it open while raining.
Weathertech has some (I picked 2014, choose your year).

Honest question: Why do you have your windows open in the rain in the first place?

But if you really want some window guards, WeatherTech usually makes the best. I don't personally have them, but their floor mats are top notch.

Even if its not raining and just very humid from after a storm or the car is wet.... if there is ANY water on the car it just comes straight in because there is no gutter for the water to stream over the car... Its so annoying. Drive thrus, deliveries, general window open, wet wet wet.

I'll looking into weather tech just wanted someone with experience to chime in on what fits and what has worked.

My 335 I could have my windows cracked whilst lite rain and nothing would come in, X1 with a looming wet looking cloud, flooded.

Yep, one of the few things I hate with my X1. I get wet just from spraying windshield washer fluid.

Don't know what you mean by a cracked window.
I have Weather Tech and as long as your windows are not below them they do their job. They give just enough opening to let air in and keep the rain out.

Picking some up this month, my windows regulator switches will soon be saved from the X1 drip. Its because there is no lip in the rain gutter on top of the car, it literally just falls straight down. I'll see if I can safely take a video sometime to show what I mean.

Looks good on the White X1 though!
