I have the Trackspec (side only) and they look great and are very functional.

It probably depends on ‘whether’ or not you plan on driving a lot in bad ‘weather’.?

I think they look great, my only concern is if you happen to get caught in a Rain storm, would you get a lot of moisture into your engine compartment with those. Seems like a good way to keep the engine compartment much cooler than normal.
