my hope is the noise level will drop but if not it might look retro cool. but if it's not going to fit then it's going on the wifes car ............. i might stick some photos on & put it up for a vote:D

I'm tempted too. With the sunroof slid back (Mine won't tilt....:rolleyes:) I get lots of wind vibration through the car unless the window is also open-I think these are supposed to minimise that effect....maybe.....:confused:

They do stop the buffeting that can set up at speed

I usually get some wind noise, when the sunroof is open, around 120mph. I wonder if one of those would solve the problem.

It looks good in my eyes, and fits in very well between the roof rails

Seen on many cars - I have two on the shelf in spares shed for my Capri's. The ones I have are a brown tint whereas yours looked grey/blue. I pass a modern Toyota or is it Mazda (they all look the same) regularly on way to work .

If anyone wants one of these, I bought one and discovered that my sunroof cable was broken....:(
It cost me £29.00 inc post from that guy on eBay. If anyone wants it, I will knock £5 off that price, so £24.00 inc shipping. Please PM me if interested.
