As my wife said there's less wind with it up.
My wind deflector was seperate, which I think is better. Pop it up (I left mine up all the time) when the roof is down, windows up (rears too) and barely any wind encroachment there...

John...I know you don't have your SL any more so I don't feel guilty saying that my roof when up is actually very quiet, I had a few squeaks initially but they have gone since I Gummi'ed the weather seals.

I gummi'd mine every place I could think of, but my rattles were metallic, could NEVER get to the bottom of them...didnt bother me too much to be honest except on the occasions the car was being a pig, then it heightened my senses, if you know what I mean. I've seen mine on Safwat cars site now, looks stunnng

I have seen your car on Safwat too. It does look nice but I don't think I would buy it knowing the issues you have had, who knows what else it may need in the future. You did well to p'ex it for the E63.
