    1. If I could I’d likely give 4.5 stars, not 5.
    2. Full disclosure- I have never in memory installed new OEM run channels, so I can’t compare to OEM except the shriveled and crispy old slag I removed to put these on. Compared to what came off the car these are ten points on a scale of 1-5.
    3. Some minor issues- I can’t say they’re the product and not my ham fisted lack of skill.

    So, first off, they work great so far.
    They go right in, just punch them towards the middle and push them in.
    It is strangely satisfying when you get the groove just right and they almost instal themselves.
    In my case there were a few spots that despite my best efforts, the “outer” tabs didn’t want to quite slot in perfectly. It doesn’t seem to impact function, but if you look closely you can see they aren’t all snug against the frame. Maybe it is my doors or I am not cut out for installing window runs, or maybe it is the product. I don’t know.
    My recommendation for what it is worth is to start at the upper rearward corner of the door and get the large “triangle” rubber “plug” in and line up the rest of the run off that. If you don’t get the corners where the frame changes angles in the right place, it will look worse and might not work well.
    With a couple tries and some fussing I got these in “good enough” for my tastes and seemingly to work well.
    My only other minor complaint is the fuzzy material seems to come off fairly easily- but in my experience with this type of treatment that is usually the case, and again- I can’t compare to say OEM is any better.
    I feel good about the value for the cost and these are a great improvement over the old weathered ones I removed.
