E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Wind deflector

Just got a 2011 white 135i convert. Love it & want to get a wind deflector. Any difference between the OEM model and the Love the Drive model???

Naw, I think they have the same performance, but the LoveTheDrive version is less expensive. Also, there's the windblox model that's a different sort, not as sophisticated, but you can use the back seat, and it costs way less too.

I just bought a wind deflector from BMW of morristown for 330.00. It delivered in two days after ordering. It's oem and its 70.00 cheaper then love to drive. On another note it works great. Drove home last night with the top down in 45 degree temp and you would have thought it was 60 degrees out. Great purchase!

There are ALWAYS used ones around (OEM) in the mid-$ 200 price range. Check this forum in the ad section and other BMW forums as well.

You were either rusticating for the weekend, or do the hillbilly thing!

Thumbs down

I picked up one from lovethedrive for $394 (free shipping). Works fine.

The sad thing is BMW....absolutely pathetic that they do not provide a wind deflector with the car. Audi did when I owned TTRs (3 of them) and my SLK had one....shame on you BMW, shame on you. What a cheap, rude thing to do by BMW (IMHO).

Just got my new baby. CPO 2011 128i. If you are looking at this post before purchase I recommend you convince the dealer to sell you one at cost. I just paid $250 at the dealership.

it's the best investment to increase your top-down months. and helps the woman's hair, which allows me more nights of top-down driving.
