General X5 Forum (E70) / Re: Wind Deflectiors
« on: March 18, 2018, 10:55:06 PM »
Has anyone fitted wind deflectors to their E70? Are you happy with them. Do they stop the rain dripping in when the window is partly open? What brand do you recommend?

Thanks Jeff

Hi Jeff,  I've fitted front and rear Heko wind deflectors to my E70. They look good and do help stop rain dropping in. But I have found they do increase wind noise especially at motorway/highway speeds. But overall I like them.
Are these the push in ones or adhesive?

They are push in, they fit into the window channel with clips and double sided adhesive.

Jason my apologies for not replying to your post I've only noticed it today. Unfortunately by the time I read your post as you can see above I managed to get my car remapped elsewhere but thanks so much for trying to help.

Sorry Martin for not replying to you sooner on my post
MPG sits at 33.6  and with more torque   more enjoyable to drive
any result with your

Hi Colin, thanks for your reply. Yes I managed to get my own remapped by Regal Tuning in York remotely. They provided me with a remapping box and three different maps, original, sport and economy. To be honest I flashed the sport map and haven't changed it yet as it's so much fun and I get over 30mpg even on the shortest journey. The gears seen so much smoother and as you say the torque is amazing. It is like driving a new car. Thanks again for your reply

Hi Colin, I've been wanting to remap my X5 for some time but I wanted to wait until a rolling road was available,  unfortunately nobody in Northern Ireland that I know of seems to have  4 wheel rollers. Did you notice any difference in the mpg. Thanks Martin
