This whole time I thought the thread was about windshields, like why do you need to butcher your own windshield to put in another one, unless it has chips or cracks in it. Then I started wondering, are they talking about a windshield that is heated? Guess that would make some sense... I watch too much Top Gear.

That does not look like a 650 windscreen, ours has the two "sticks" that point straight back in the middle, this one has some weird hump looking thing in the middle. Also, the bottom of the windscreen is broken up into two rounded parts that are huge compared to the top. In the picture of it folded the bottom is way bigger than the windscreen part???

I hate to say it since there could be alternate screens out there that I am not aware of, but that looks nothing like the OEM windscreen that I have and that I have seen sold previously.

Here are some side by side comparisons, the one on the left is OEM that we have all seen, the right is the one from this seller:

congrat's - you won't regret it, especially not at that price. Try it out by dropping the top on the next sunny day with temp's in the fifties or above, and you'll be surprised at how warm you stay with the seat/wheel warmers and the heater blowing warm air into the cockpit, which is somewhat retained with the window's rolled up and the windscreen up...

The other is broken on the top and is listed for a dollar - http://www.ebay.com/itm/190625416678...#ht_500wt_1180

Can these windscreens be left in place with the vert top up (and also while the top is in transition)? I don't put anyone or anything in my back seats anyway and figure I can just leave the screen always in place. Also, are the windscreens interchangeable between E64 and F13? Thanks!

Yes, you can leave the windscreen in place while the top is fully operational up or down. Also, it has a handy feature where both panels lays flat and horizontal across the back seats (see my sig pic). This flat feature is useful to either increase wind flow a little with the top down (without the circulating "vortex") or to improve rear visibility when the top is up. I leave mine installed most of the time.

Not sure if they are interchangeable - BMWUSA has them at a higher price for the 2012, and as mentioned on the subforum, they dropped the storage bag on the 2012 deflector (could be merely inflation versus an actual difference).

A quick search in the F12 subforum yielded the following thread, in it there are some folks who tried to use the older windscreen in the new car and the answer is NO, they are not interchangeable.

Saw that one but I was looking for a better deal. Whoever won the eBay one with the small hole for $125 got a smokin deal.

Nick, you might as well ask for a sale commission from these ebay sellers. You've probably managed to help sell a few on this board. And change your nickname to The Windscreen Hunter

Ha! Even without a vert, I'm still passionate about the improved experienced with the windscreen. So I guess I'm still this forums Chief Windscreen Evangelist!

I'm still hearing the preaching but not sure if I will convert to wind screenism. Doesn't it compromise the cool streamline look of the car??
