The beauty of the wind deflector is it allows for long hair to blow in the breeze in a nice way. Back away from the direction of motion. Without a wind deflector the currents are way too circular and long hair just ends up in your face. That is not good when you are trying to see while you drive.

Bottom line, with the wind deflector and windows down, I need scrunchies and baseball caps only about 5-10% of the time I drive or ride top down. Without the wind deflector that instantly goes up to 35-50% of the time.
Kat - I'll give you (or anyone else with long hair) a pass, as I realize it can be a PIA when you hair blows forward over your face. Guys (or gals) with short hair have no excuse

Just to illustrate how calm the E93 is, if you (or my wife/anyone with long hair) ride or drive my MGB, cap or scrunchy is mandatory 100% of the time due to the wind.
