    Weathertech in channels came on my 2018 and they're already flopping around. They're held in place by compression rather than tape. I've had good luck with AVS in channels in the past and they use tape. Probably going to pick a set of those up here soon.

    They are outside mount. I remember having to notch part of the side mirror where the vent shade mounts. You can just shove them under it, but then it kinda bulges out a bit. I notched it because of that and I was putting tow mirrors on anyway. Hope that makes sense...

    WeatherTech in channel. I tried the Auto Ventshade based upon recommendations here, and I don't know if I was sent a fake product or if it's just how they are, but they were flimsy with ragged edges and they were sent back.

    That sucks man. I've been using AVS for 20+ years and never had an issue.

    I chose the EGR Matte Black in channel for my truck and love them. Super easy install and perfect fit. On my wife’s Escalade we have weathertech and the quality and fit of the EGR is so much better. Just my personal experience though.

    In 2015 I bought in-channel AVS for my 2014 DC.
    They stuck out to far from the window and looked terrible, front and rear.
    Sent them back and bought weather tech.
    Front are held in by compression, but I went ahead and put 3M molding tape on them since I had it.
    Rear ones have tape on them already.
    So far so good..
