I needed them on my Pathfinder (not weathertech) as the wind was horrible with the window cracked. So far the ML is pretty good with window cracked but I have not driven with it down a lot due to weather.

Saw the weathertech ones which dont use tape to install which is a huge plus, but they are a bit pricey.

Did a search for weathertech and only saw posts about the floor liners.

Does anyone have these on their ML? Likes, dislikes?

Thanks!!!

I have them on the front windows of my ML320. I like them alright but my hearing is not the best. My wife says they have increased the wind noise with the windows up. As far as fit they have not fallen out like one did on my truck. It may have been damaged by somebody trying to break in though and I never noticed it until it fell off.

why would you need these? if its just to get some air in, then just raise the sun roof
IMHO, I agree, these things are unnecessary and not attractive. Mercedes spent a lot of money on wind tunnel testing to make the ML very aerodynamic and adding these things only undoes the work.

I do not disagree, I just have not had enough time in the ML to determine how bad the wind noise is and also how bad it gets when it rains and the window is cracked.

So far I have not detected any bad wind issues when it is open. My Pathfinder was horrible with the window open and definately needed them.

I definately don't want to take away from the looks and aerodynamics of the ML if I don't have to, which it is looking like I may not.

Sometimes it's just nice to crack the windows open while driving in the rain without worrying about water splashing or dripping in...especially after eating beans and chilli for lunch...
