Spider Wind Deflector - differences

Hi all,

Appreciate there are a few threads on these wind deflectors, but I can't find out what the differences would be between those non-OEM ones that sell for c.170, and the OEM ones that sell for c.270.

Is the 100 difference really worth it?

Do they install differently?

Recommendations welcome!

Thanks in advance guys,

I only have OEM, (two in total) and the oem is a two piece that covers the half moon of the rear cubby hole while the aftermarket appears to have a piece that hangs down below the upright. Looks wise oem is best, suppose it all depends on you?

OEM bolt directly into ready-made recesses behind two plastic blanking plates. Non OEM usually means having to drill holes the attach the deflector. They don't fit well if you've got chromed hoops as the deflector has to be further back.
Managed to find my OEM on Ebay (winning bid was 130.00)
