There’s a custom made acrylic wind deflector being sold on eBay. It’s £100 all in including the m8 bolts. Thought I’d let you know as it stems from the french forum I believe. Someone on there had the bright idea of making their own. I’ll post photos when I get mine... in gloss white. 😂😂😂😂

I was aware of an official Renault accessory which seemed to stick up behind the seats but would be interested to see pics of this. I'll see if I can find it on e-bay.

An interesting piece of kit which looks well designed & is much neater than an official Renault device that I saw on the internet once but can no longer find a picture of.

Our last 4 convertibles: Merc SLK; 2 MGTFs & an Alfa Spider all had fully folding roofs (Merc metal others cloth) & all really needed their mesh wind deflectors at motorway speeds but one could get the full open top effect by folding them down at lower speeds. (When posing!!!).

The Wind; in standard form; is much less draughty so I doubt I would feel the need to fit a deflector.

Will be interested to hear how effective it is.

Re posing: One year we took the Blue MGTF top down along St Tropez harbour. It really threw the Ferrari/Lambo/Bugatti spotting kids who took quite an interest as they had no idea what it was!!

@pittstop I never saw you as a poser but why not.
