Which wind deflector do you use? Thinking about getting the BMW OEM mesh one, and am curious as to your thoughts.

Thanks
I recommend you get the glass one. Much nicer looking and better rear view as well (I keep my OEM mesh one [wish it was a glass one] in the trunk, unless I travel on the express way).

Link one of them is here

Sounds like I shoudl take it back in and complain...
I hear fine both with the top up and top down but the one on the other end doesn't seem to hear a word of what I am saying, even with the top up they only hear road noise and it is impossible to have a conversation. I have an iPhone 3Gs that works flawlessly in my company car (Audi). Anyone else has this problem or have an idea on what to do?

Get a headset with jawbone technology - they have a mode you can put them in where they ignore all air vibrations, and only pick up vibrations from your bones. Unless your skull is rattling, the person on the other end won't hear the air/wind around you

I would agree with most above- I have no problems with calls with the top up, even at highway speeds 80+ mph. Wait... I mean, 55mph.

With the top down, it's a little tougher- but doable when I roll up the windows (but then I look like such a dork with the top down and all four windows up... maybe I should just let it go to voice mail).

The real question is, if callers can here me just fine (with the top up)- how come the chick in the voice command thingie changes over to the NAV everytime I want to play the rolling stones, or goes to the settings menu when I ask to dial the office... that's what I want to know!

Microphone mistakenly installed outside the car maybe?? I don't have this problem at all.

OK, so it isn't normal. I will book a service appointment then. Thanks.

On the BMW converts I've owned (1 series, 3 series and z4), I've gone with a different windscreen each time. First OEM, then another random vendor and then windblox. Out of all of them, windblox by far surpasses the rest in how much wind is blocked and cost effectiveness. I paid $440 for the first one, something like $300 for the second (that was a crappy windscreen), and $120 for my windblox windscreen. Idk, just my two cents, but I'll never use anything but WB again, especially since they have a lifetime warranty.
