|Although described as "ungainly" in the 8/92 issue of CAR, |
the factory wind deflector, to my eye, is classic M-B.
What's an anal-retentive owner to do?

Finding an original is possible, but only if you can find an owner who is willing to part with one. My first thought was to approach an owner selling his car, but that's a taller order than you'd think. As a rule, owners don't like to sell off bits & pieces for fear of de-valuing their vehicle. On the other hand, the ones who might be persuaded are inclined to place a substantial (read: unreasonable) premium to the desired part. I found this out the hard way.

So my Cabriolet has a windschott once again. It fits like a glove, and I'm anxious to see how effectively it decreases turbulence in the cabin come springtime. (And if anyone knows how it's supposed to be stored in the trunk, I'd appreciate a photo.)
Thank you, Santa!
