After four year in the wilderness I’ve been lured back into a 911; this time a beautiful black 997 GenII C4S Cabriolet.

Not had a rag top before and wondered if other owners have a view on how essential a wind deflector is and suggestions on part type etc.

Great to be back.

I've only owned my 997 for a few weeks, but I used the deflector for the first time on the weekend and I noticed a difference a lot on the motorway.

Huge difference at speed; certainly on the Autobahn!

Agree- I had one on my 996 Cab - much better at speed - you can have a conversation with the wind deflector in place....
