I am watching a few on eBay. I know my car could do with a thermostat which would help on cooler days. Interested too on peoples thoughts. My daughter has an MKII MX5 with one and TBH I can't tell any difference.

Yes, makes a great deal of difference, it means that there is no in-cabin buffeting and at high speeds 'madam's' hair goes backwards instead of forwards.
p.s. Not a euphemism for anything dodgy.

Im currently in the process of restoring a OEM Alfa Deflector and have just finished spraying the frame and just need to spray sealer onto the paint before fitting new mesh, it will be for sale once im finished and comes with mounting brackets and original fitting instructions. I have a OEM also fitted to my daily driver and its original but with a few scratches to the metal frame but the mesh is perfect. I only want the one so one or tother is available. PM me.

As for are they any use? all i will say is that once you have one you will never go without again. Heat remains in Cabin, hair is not blown into a mess, neck chill becomes a thing of the past and while driving on the motorway you can comfortably have a conversation with your passenger and listen to your radio at normal levels.

PS: I also have a brand new rear screen section available too, its not one of the ebay items its an OEM with Alfa stamp on plastic window and cost me a fortune a few years back its sitting taking up valuable space in my spare room now though and comes in its original Alfa packaging.

Yes, I wouldn't be without mine. My hair would be in rats tails.

Bought one for the missus and her spider and couldn't be without it now. Biggest difference is the amount of heat that stays in the cabin and lack of wind chill around the neck.
