Options

Lexan Upgrade: Regular: +$15

Examples of Lexan applications

This option is for 1/4 inch abrasion resistant Lexan material.This material is a virtually indestructible material suitable for high impact applications, such as bullet resistant windows, boat windshields, lightweight bicycle gear sprockets, etc. This is abrasion resistant lexan, with a 10 year manufacture’s warranty, and does not yellow with sun exposure. Paradoxically, lexan is actually a soft material, so this AR Polycarbonate is specially formulated lexan designed to resist minor scruffs, wear, and constant exposure to the elements. You will come to very much appreciate this abrasion lexan offered only by winddeflector for years after your purchase.

Invisible Straps: +$10

  • All straps are 5/8 inches wide. Standard straps are black, (The black nylon straps are already included in the base cost.) of nylon webbing. The invisible straps of clear vinyl.
  • The clear vinyl is tough and pliable, will not weaken or become brittle or yellow with age.  This is the same material used on garden sheds, boat windows, and other abusive-prone environments.
  • Strong material. Each straps by itself is rated to carry the pressure of the winddeflector, so having multiple straps is over-engineering.

Rubber Edge: Regular: $40

Here is the rubber edge around the perimeter of a BMW Z3 winddeflector. A rubber bead protects against dropping and abrasion against your car, attached to the perimeter of the winddeflector.

Customized Slot Spacing: +$10

Customized Slot Spacing Slot spacing = the horizontal distance between the slots, of which the straps are threaded through, to wrap onto the seat head rests. Usually, this is about the distance from the center of one head rest, to the other. There are two default sizes:

  • 24 inches apart, fits onto headrests that are generally spaced 22-26 inches apart, from the center of one headrest to the other.
  • 29.5 inches apart, fits onto headrests that are generally spaced 27-23 inches apart, from the center of one headrest to the other.

The space between the slots can be set from 20 inches apart, to 36 inches apart.

FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1) Can you leave the winddeflector in place while raising and lowering the top?
Yes, you can. Many customers simply leave the winddeflector mounted on their car most of the year.

2) What is the difference between the Regular size, and the Large size winddeflector?
Basically, the Regular size protects from the top of the head to the shoulders, and the Large size protects from the top of the head, to the elbow.

3) Can the seats be position independently?
Yes, they can. There is enough slack in the straps such that the seats can be positioned in different track and inclination levels. For instance, one customer, the husband is six-foot four-inches, and the wife is five-foot six-inches. With that difference in height, the winddeflector still accommodates their different seating positions.


4) Can rear seat passengers still get in?
Yes, rear seat egress is not effected. For example, one customer has three children, ages 12, 7, and 5, and they all get in & out without problem.

5) Could the winddeflector chatter when in use? 
No, the fastening system holds the winddeflector very secure to the car. This winddeflector is tested to 150 MPH.

6) Is this difficult to install?
Definitely not. Elementary age children install these winddeflectors.

7) What is the difference between acrylic and lexan?
Acrylic is about 18x stronger than glass; Lexan is about 61x stronger

8) Could the winddeflector induce any sort of wear? 
Never. Since the winddeflector is secure in place, there is no movement between the winddeflector and the car, so there is no wear.

9) Doesn’t acrylic or lexan yellow in sunlight?
Some manufactures with less quality might, but not winddeflector.

10) How long does this winddeflector last? 
With regular care and handling, your winddeflector will last the lifetime of your car.

11) Is the tint an overlay film? 
No, the tint is infused in the material, which resists scratches and abrasions.

12) Should I get a tint?
Tinting is a color preference, so it really depends your individual taste; however, the smoke tint is our favorite, and what we use.

13) Does the tint inhibit rear view vision?
No – it’s like looking through sunglasses.

14) Does the winddeflector cause glare at night?
No. First, the winddeflector is made of a specialty glare resistant material. Second, the winddeflector mounts at a slight angle, to further cut glare.

15) Do the straps indent the headrests?
No. With the width of the straps and the light weight of the winddeflector, there is not enough pressure to cause indents.

Advantages

1) Which is Which?
One of these winddeflectors is brand new; the other is eight years old. The old screen was borrowed from a first customer, sold back in November of 1999 for a BMW Z3. The used winddeflector has been in active use since. The customer estimate he drives top-down 140 days per year. He leaves the winddeflector in the car about ten months a year, taking it out and storing it during the raining months of December and January. Can you tell which winddeflector has a thousand days top-down use and 3000+ days mounted in the car, and which winddeflector is brand new?

2) Stronger Material
#1) This is a sheet of ordinary 1/4 inch (635 mm) acrylic. The deflection bottoms out, more than three inches (7.6 cm).; This is the winddeflector material used by other vendors. #2) This is a sheet of 3/8 inch (953 mm) of polycarbonate acrylic. Despite being thicker than winddeflector, this winddeflector still deflects 50% more; the deflection is just over 1.5 inches (3.8 cm). #3) winddeflector’smaterial deflects less than 7/8 inch (2.2 cm) under the same weight.

3) Edging Cut The Right Way To Cut
#1) A customer traded in this particular winddeflector, purchased from another vendor. This winddeflector was fabricated upon a shop table router. The cut and workmanship is inconsistent, with nicks and gouges. #2) This winddeflector was cut upon double sided AR Polycarbonate acrylic, using a CNC router. While the cut is smooth, machinery marks are prominent. #3) winddeflector’swinddeflectors are cut using a five thousand watt laser, ensuring a crystal clear cut with a polished finish.

4) Resists Fractures
A customer experienced this fracturing with a winddeflector purchased from another vendor. From the continual movement and stresses, combined with inferior material, micro-stress cracks emerged. These cracks grew over time, until the winddeflector became unstable.

This picture is a close-up from of a slot from a customer’s winddeflector BMW Z3 winddeflector, continually mounted on his car since November 2002. Since winddeflector uses the best available material, it wears well over time, remaining crisp and clear. (Photo taken June 2009.

5) 15 Years
winddeflector winddeflectors are constructed from materials providing a 15 year scratch and mar resistant rating. Against daily and constant use, your winddeflector remains clear throughout its life.

6) Lifetime Warranty
winddeflector is the only manufacture warranting against buffs and abrasions. Your winddeflector will be clear for the lifetime of your automobile.

7) No Squeaks or Rattles 
winddeflector winddeflectors are securely held in place, with no movement between the winddeflector and your car. This prevents annoying high pitch squeaks and rattles when driving with your winddeflector

8) Easy Installation 
This winddeflector is most simple to install. A 12-year old niece of a staffer installs these winddeflectors in two minutes.

9) Does Not Induce Abrasion Against Your Car
winddeflector winddeflector does not rub against your car, preventing ongoing abrasion and wear. This is a picture from a customer’s car. She purchased a winddeflector from a different vendor. After eight months continually mounted on her car, the poor fit caused accumulated wear against the roll hoops

10) Does Not Yellow from Sun Exposure 
At one point, this winddeflector (from another vendor) was clear. This customer lives in Texas, and had this winddeflector mounted on his car for four years, before it became unusable. winddeflector winddeflectors are guaranteed not to yellow from sun exposure.

11) Anti Wobble
No wobble. winddeflector winddeflectors remain secure when in use. The winddeflector does not wobble or vibration when, even at high speeds.

12) Made For Speed 
winddeflector winddeflectors are rated for 150 MPH (250 KM/hr).

13) Utilitizes Green Processes 
All cast-off material is recycled. Base material incorporates soybean based oils instead of all petroleum, increasing use of renewable materials.

14) Laser Fabrication
All winddeflector winddeflectors are cut on a 5,000 watt laser (normal power for this process is 100 watts), providing exceptionally clear cuts.

According to the medical community, and as stated on this OvulationCalculator site, ovulation cramps are totally normal and they can occur quite often among women.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Customer Reviews

Easy to install and take off.
Easy to install and take off. I typically take mine off because I had a custom convertible top put on my Z3, and so the ability to remove the winddeflector was really important to me. The bolt on systems were just too permanent and a pain in the neck to take on and off. This did the trick and didnï’t cost me hardly anything, especially compared to some other manufacturers out there. (Posted on 10/27/19)

Review by Rogen

Car looks great with it
Very sturdy and durable. I heard that some companies use a thin and more flexible material. This one feels very stable and I donï’t worry about it cracking if I hit it accidently. The extras were very nice as well, since I got this for my wife’s car (that I end up driving a lot). I got a tint and engraving. (Posted on 12/2/19)

Review by Jogan

Thanks winddeflector!
I’m a diehard winddeflector fan. This has been my second purchase from them, and I think they are hands down the best manufacturer of winddeflectors. They really know how to make them, and the options are very handy. Both my Mustang and Z3 are nicer to driver with their winddeflectors in place. (Posted on 4/5/20)
