It has a stubby deflector over the windscreen, yes. I think I remember from when I scanned the manual it's designed to make the sunroof less buffety and not for when you have the roof retracted.

anyway, enjoy Paddy! :yes:
Thank you. :)

Thanks David. We don't get much decent weather down here (what the hell was I thinking of?) but when we do we'll be good and ready. :yes:

We don't get weather for cabriolets anywhere north of Cornwall but it shouldn't stop you getting wrapped up and dropping the top:thumbup:

Hired one a few years back. Decent enough motor I think :)

Last night my local spanners expert gave it a good looking over (and under) and declared it an absolute effin' bargain with a huge grin after having pressed the loud pedal. Repeatedly, knowing him. There were only two things he found: one of the front left wishbone bushes is looser than the right, and the rear right tyre had some splits on the inside wall. Went to the local tyre centre this evening and found the rear tyres were original and the left was beginning to perish too. Loads of tread too which is strange even though it has only done 50K km. €300 later and a lesson in how to reset the tyre pressure sensors and we're getting there. Bilstein bushes on order for both sides (€17) and I need to get a windscreen chip sorted that I didn't originally notice as I had viewed it in the dark. The folding roof creaks like crazy and I guess that it has never been serviced. I've cleaned all the rubber seals (which were filthy) and I've ordered the correct seal lubricant from Germany.

The lads in the tyre centre were gathered around admiring it. They never do that when I take my beautiful GT in there. :depressed:
