Pontiac Solstice Windscreen Wind Deflector
It is my highest hope that I can in some little way contribute back to the forum for some of the outstanding help I have been given.
I wanted to give some feedback on a product that I bought, of which I hope it helps.
I love convertibles. I do not love the wind whipping my long hair, (yes longhair, especially for a guy). And my girlfriend doesn't like it either. Having convertibles in the past I learned that wind deflectors are great things to add to cut down on the wind hitting one from the rear.
The URL above is the wind deflector I purchased. I got it primarily because it works by suction cups. One does not have to alter the body. Cut into the body. Drill. All that. And if you want to take it off you simply left it off, and put it back down. and for somebody like me, I am sure I'm not the only one, though in my estimation if one is motivated enough to join a forum, it seems that one would be handy to some degree, so I'm probably the least handy guy on this forum, nevertheless, for somebody like me who is not handy at all, things like this that need no maintenance or whatever really help.
If you sell the car, you can keep it for your next car if you get the same type of car. And maybe the new owner would not like that the body was altered. Etc.
I find the wind deflection of this particular when deflector to be very good. Perfect? No. It simply does in my opinion a very good job of cutting down on the wind.
The suction cups work flawlessly. I've had no issues whatsoever. So far it is held up perfectly. It looks good too. I also feel it is reasonably priced.
I also feel these wonderful wind deflectors can extend the season for the convertible use of the car for those of us who live in seasonal climates. I am in New York and with these wind deflectors I found that I can comfortably drive in the spring and fall with appropriate clothing, also w/ the trick of turning the heat on blowing down and up causing a sort of circular heat bubble in the cockpit which is kind of an amazing phenomenon.
So there it is. This wind deflector gets my thumbs up. I recommend it highly.
