Thanks for the reply. I guess that I am interested in buying a good product that won't damage the vehicle because it really is kind of noisy with the sunroof open.<P>...dl...<BR>

Jim,<P>From the looks of things, I don't think that they will be too hard to install. You could always call the 1-800-350-5337 number and ask them how difficult it is.<P>-Drew

These deflectors are exactly what I'm looking for (ie no drilling, or tape involved). Has anyone had experience with this brand as far as quality and correct fit??? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P><P>

They have a sun roof deflector on ebay for 47 bucks. It looks like the one that InDy posted without the vent(s). There is no drilling or tape. <A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1836238275" TARGET=_blank>http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1836238275</A>

If you are getting a lot of wind noise, you should try opening the sunroof past the auto-stop point. I've found that the auto-stop point reduces wind noise and humming at relatively low speed. For highway cruising, opening the roof up all the way is a lot quieter.<P>Afterall, puting a deflector on effectively reduces the size of the opening. To really reduce the noise you could have a deflector all the way across :) Of course then you could just close the sun roof altogether. Let the sun shine in!<BR>

I did end up purchasing these from wooddash and the product is very well made and extremely eash to fit to the car. Looks good too!<P>thanks for the input <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>dl<P><BR> <IMG SRC="http://www.wooddash.com/fullimage/bv.jpg"> <P>They don't seem to be very expensive and they have 3 different types available, specific for the S60.<P>-Drew[/B][/QUOTE]<P><P>

I'll take one and post it. I went for the one vent style. It's a very simple flap that when tilted directly up and down directs air flow into the passenger compartment without any of the wind noise. Kind of nice....<P>...dl....<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by InDy:<BR><B> Happen to have any pictures?
