It's actually in interesting chemical process going on, but the cause of fading is basically the absorption of ultraviolet rays from the sun breaking down hemical bonds. For instance, you may see how your kid's toys fade from the sun when left outside for a few months - same thing. Likewise, this is part of the reason why museums use very specific lighting when highlighting acrylic paintings, so the light doesn't cause the paint to fade over time. Unfortunately, when fading happens on a windscreen, there's nothing you can do to restore it, since the failure is an internal process.

Would you be able to post a pic? Others have also reported this same fading, so it'd be interesting to see what's going on.

Interesting post, however this isn't the case. The WindRestrictor was replaced free of charge, but not because of the sun damage that you mention. The sun does not affect our products at all. We use only top quality materials that are not available off the shelf. We now use a very high quality photo realistic laser engraving on our world class Windrestrictors. We find it works better than the sand blasting that was used several years ago. We haven't had any issues with fading. This specific issue was a mistake on our staff's behalf while the product was going through the assembly process. However, we've noticed some of our competitors may use cheaper materials that yellow easily and fade over time. Some of these velcro attached "wind blockers" as you call them, pale in comparison to the real WindRestrictor®. Customers have brought in "wind blockers" that were flapping in the wind as they drove up. Maybe, these are the models you speak of. Possibly, models that have painted on logos or stickers? These are all cheap reproductions of our products.

This customer has been taken care of. Luckily we have a FULL lifetime warranty on our products, unlike other sellers. Please, compare this to the other sellers of similar products as well. Our version is an incredible 3/8" thick compared to the 1/8 mostly found online for half of the price. These are the same versions that turn yellow over the years and lose clarity. We have an extremely rigid steel bracket system that was developed for both versions of the BMW Z4 WindRestrictor®. Once our product is in place, it's not going to be flopping around on the panel, it's solid.

Folks, if you want a wind deflector that is going to hold up at high speeds, block wind turbulence and look awesome on your BMW, go with the Windrestrictor®. You won't regret it!

I've reviewed some of your other postings and it seems you have a vested interest in the company Windblox, one of our "competitors". It seems as though you have been doing quite a bit of cheering for this outfit on other wind deflector threads. You know it almost seems like you may be affiliated with that wind blocker provider. I hope not, that sure would be dishonest if you created a fake account just to shamelessly self promote your products.

I guess that would be one thing to use a fake account to talk about your own products but to get on a Windrestrictor® thread of ours and try to persuade customers away from our brand, well that would be downright dirty. I guess customers can draw their own conclusions though.

Sorry folks, this has happened many, many times:tsk:

Thanks for your patience with us, I hope you enjoy your brand new Windrestrictor! :thumbup:

Thanks Stephen, the wind restrictor you sent me looks awsome.
Thanks for replacing it with a new one free of cost and also reimbursing me for the shipping cost. This is top class customer service. I have not see customer service like this in the recent times when customer service is pretty much non existent.
I sure will recommend your products to my friends.

Thanks again
