I have a hard time cracking the windows when its rainy (smoker). The rain always drips on my shit.

does anyone know of any deflectors on the market. I know VW does not offer said option.

I just gave you a smite for smoking in your fast. Shame!
A well deserved smite. I smoke, but not my car.

On the other hand, I do understand what he's going through. It tends to stay warm when it rains around here so I usually crack the windows. But heaven forbid I stop or turn. Without rain gutters, water pours in and drops right on the window controls. Man, that's annoying.

Yeah, the way the windows are shaped I can imagine a lot of rain would come in. When it's rainy and humid here I just put on the air conditioning...works a lot better than cracking a window.

On a side note, I've also noticed when it rains the side mirrors become nearly impossible to look out of cause of all the rain droplets on the window and mirrors.

Get some Invisible Glass and give your windows a goin' over a time or two...the water will be whisked off the glass next time it rains...great stuff!

Running the AC produces a noticable drop in power.

I'd rather have the windows down and get a little wet than suffer that hit on my hp.

Yeah, I notice it too. Worst of all, it seems like there's a significant throttle lag with the AC on. I keep it off whenever possible, which in Canada is pretty easy.
