Can anyone give me advice on windscreens for my M3?

Hello,

I'm interested in getting a windscreen to make the ride more comfortable for my kids in the back seat. I've seen several different versions and the BMW one looks great. However, it covers the back seat so I'm wondering if I even understand the concept of what these screens are for. Are they for the people in the front seats or in the back? Will anyone who has one give me their thoughts and oppinions on a windscreen for my rear seat passengers....I could really use the advice.

Thank you

The BMW windscreens are for people in the front seats. In fact, as you have noted, the screen covers the rear seat so no one can even sit there.

The screen works because much of the wind that hits front seat passengers is actually coming from the rear of the car - air travels up an over the windshield, then makes a downward U-turn towards the front of the car, hitting the front seat passengers in the back of their head.

I am not aware of a windscreen that would still allow people to sit in the back.

Yup it is for the front people. I also don't think there is one where people can sit in the back because the part that covers the back is used to support it also.
