The benefits to these are more practical than just the looks.
The biggest benefit is that you can leave your windows open (about an inch or so) when parked. They keep rain from dripping in and spotting/ruining your seats, and the tint hides the fact that your windows are open. This is a HUGE benefit to cars with dark (or leather) interiors on very hot/humid days. Using these and a sunshield, they help to keep the car interior cooler and allow fresh air to circulate.
For most cars, they also provide extra wind buffeting when your windows are down while driving, and usually help to quiet the interior also.
I had these for each of my previous vehicles, except for my '10 Mazda6, and they were all very useful for me. I didn't get them for the '10 because Weathertech did not make an in-channel version of them, and other aftermarket stick-on versions covered up the chrome strip above the window, making them look tacky and unappealing...
That's good to know. I never really knew what the purpose was for these.
