Default Sunroof wind deflector.....

I need a low profile wind deflector for my roof.
I bought one that was an AVS universal and didn't like the way it looked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!

My son, 94SSEgold, has one on his car and it looks sharp especially with the blackouts

I like to keep my roof smooth. What'* the point of a retractable sunroof, if you block the air from coming in?

I honestly wouldn't worry about it. It takes away from the smoothness of the roofline. I think the last thing you want to do is add plastic to the top of a classy car. ..ya know? Keep that SSEi smooth BTW: love that paint

Mine isn't very noisy, at least for my taste. There'* alot of times I'll actually drive around holding the sunroof deflector down to allow more air motion in the car. Thought about putting in a clip to hold it for long periods. Or a lever to hold it down that would reset after I closed the roof.

yeah ditto on that one...its almost quieter also i think

also, i have a friend with a gp, and he has a sunroof deflector, and it really sucks on his car. with the sunroofs on gp'* not going all the way back, and the sunroof deflector acutally covering up some of the opening, he only has about 6inches of actual "sunroof" if you know what i mean. also, it gets really dirty under it. when you go through the automatic car wash, all the dirty leaves and crap say under there. its just not a pretty thing
