    I've just purchased an E250 cabriolet 2014, without air scarf.

    I'm considering getting a wind deflector as I'm finding a lot of draught / cold around my upper legs / hips.

    How well do wind deflectors work?

    Your experiences would be appreciated, thanks.

    They work brilliantly.
    In my clk, with the windows up and the deflector up there is never more than a ripple coming over the top - even at speeds over 80mph.
    I doesn't even ruffle Mrs Ted's hair on a 200 mile run and make no mistake, she is fussy.
    Lets you have the roof down when it is dry for a good 8 months of the year.

    Thanks Ted, the aircap wind deflector is quite good but not good enough! I used to have a Bentley Continental GTC, the wind deflector was essential but brilliant. I remember one 200 mile trip on a sunny winters day with air temp less than zero and the hood down, it was so cold when we got out of the car!
