Z4- wind deflector - any recommendations

I'm going to make the wind deflectors the first purchase for the Z4.

Any recommendations on:

1 - which to buy - I'm partial to the plexi ones
2 - any recommended sites to buy from?

I ask #2 because on the FJR forum, we actively shop at the folks who advertise there. While I know that's appreciated everywhere, I'm not familiar yet with many advertisers for BMW accessories, hence me asking out loud.

Thanks for your time.

Like my plexi from Roadster Solutions. Do a search for more opinions that you can read.

I like the BMW removable one that stows away in the trunk when not in use (attaches to a bracket under the trunk lid). It is a bit pricey though since it replaces the roll bar covers as well to add the tracks to attach the screen. Visibility and wind reduction are also top notch IMO..

I have the same mesh OEM removable deflector. I only use it when my wife's in the car, to cut down on her hair blowing around. I also find the truck storage brackets to be very handy.

I got mine on e-bay, did the install (very easy) and saved a bunch.
