Hey Play, after signing up and reading through their page, they say these are dealer genuine guards and that if you don't see what you want to let them know about it. Maybe they can get the rear oem visor...

How much do they go for on that site?

^$71.90 w/surface shipping, or $79.42 w/an expedited service. They also have the vented corners for about $45 shipped. You should sign up to check it out, they have a lot of rare stuff.

Yes sir, I talked to them about the rear visors. They said they will try to get them if I can get them a part number. They will not do the searching for us although they speak Japanese and could do it in 5 minutes. I have been looking for a part number over the last 6 months for about 30 hours total. I got nothing. Thanks for the heads up though.

Ah, didn't know you had already cum across these guys. Well, the search continues then...Maybe if we got a whole crapload of us to bug them about the visors they would be willing to get teh#.

STOP!! If you sign up with them and then wait a while they will send you an email further discounting the price on the rainguards.

Edit: Nevermind, you have to buy something else with them to get that price. Go to the give me a deal link at top of page and click several times to get a couple of different deal offers.

These are the ones from that site. They come with absolutely everything to install them. Its so nice to have the window cracked in the rain with out taking a shower. The only down side is they don't come with English instructions but it's pretty self explanatory.

That was alone, after shipping to the US it was 80 bucks even with some change.

w00t.. I'm stoked to get these! I have posted up that first pic of the red GT4 insomnak8702 had in his original post just asking for these a number of times! I can remember asking even back on c.net if anyone knew.

Ummmmm...sarcasm. I suppose you could call it irony that I want to keep a part rare but just ordered the part myself. Your choice.

Shadowlife25
04-26-2007, 07:44 AM
What is this sarcasm you speak of? :)
I'm glad that the guys on this thread who NEED them have ordered them.
I believe that a part of myself and possibly also Play's apprehensiveness to so many getting these is that not long ago, others on this board and other boards (who shall remain nameless) were trying to gouge people on the cost of these due to their "rarity"
If you need a set, please be courteous and only purchase for your vehicle. Don't hoard them.

Also just FYI to those interested, I am still in the process of trying to track down the OEM rear visor. If anyone has info to lend, please PM myself or Play so we can get the ball rolling on this.

geebes
04-26-2007, 07:52 AM
^^Indeed! I hope to see none of these on ebay anytime soon going for $200 or anything crazy.

I saw 2 of the visors for 205's on ebay today, doesn't really help our situation...just thought I'd let you know.

BTW...are we sure this is a stock part?

Shadowlife25
04-26-2007, 07:59 AM

The rear visor like the side ones on this thread were never published in the parts catalog. They were in hard copy accessory catalogs only and only found in Japanese Toyota dealerships on the parts counter. If we had a connection at a Japanese dealer, it would be so easy if they access to old paper manuals. :(

Adding to the discussion, tough cookies for me, but I search for these guards for about 5 years before someone cracked the code on Alltrac.net. I felt the right to a pair of these. I have looked even harder for the rear ones, so I get them first if we find them you bastards. I know, cry me a river. I just have to get over it now.:hehe:

Hmm. Didn't notice that at first, but they DO look a bit feminine. Oh well, most guys call their cars "she" anyway.

As for being a stock part, if you look at the picture on the first link in this thread, there's a small link that says "view large". Scroll down to the last picture, and there's the Toyota dealership sticker with the part number stamped on it. Granted, the part number comes up negative anywhere you search, because, as was already said, it was an accessory (and a Japan-only accessoy, at that) and didn't show up in the stock parts catalog.

There are many sites that have rear visors for the 5th gen. All of them are not OEM. There are three different styles aside from OEM, but they just aren't as cool.

As we know right now, all manufacturers have ceased production of fifth gen rain guards and all that are left are already on someone's car.

RHDJapan used to carry them, but they stated that Toyota stopped production of them. So if you want them, you have to find them used or a pair someone had in a bag and never installed.
