Anyone tried this windscreen?

Has anyone bought one and if so, does it work well and seem to be good quality?

I suppose it's a matter of taste but the one here looks a lot better (to me). My personal experience is they work great. But I have the one from Performance Products.

Not to offend anyone, but I think it is butt ugly. The one offered by MB and, as yucrew pointed out, Performance Products is much better looking.
Oh, it works very well. It will change your top down experience.

Ok, this may be a dumb question but I have to ask. I have a windscreen from my ex's old SAAB 900 hanging in the garage (no the car is no longer hers) & I was wondering if it would work in my 1980 450SL.

Just curious on thoughts, I will try installing it somehow in the spring.

I am in Houston and I have a 2000 Windscreen with cover that I don't need. It's like new.

That 'thing' masquarading as a Mercedes windscreen looks like an adjustable window screen insert propped up with a cut-down landau bar from a hearse...totally, utterly, ugly.
