Comes with most SLs. Only ever came across one without..a 2003 SL350 when I was looking for one. It must be rare to find an SL55 without wind deflector. It is removeable though, so like 1st aid boxes, CD changers, 5th alloy wheels on VWs etc, the previous owner may have chosen not to bequeath it on the next owner.

From a September 1996 sales brochure, it looks like what they called a windshield was standard throughout the R129 range, not an option, so I would expect the same in the R230 range. They now seem to call it a windstop, or, rather, its manufacturers do:

can anyone confirm this with a spec sheet / catalogue showing it was a no cost standard item?

I'm sure it was standard. As mentioned, it had been standard on the R129 SL for years.

Didn't stop a main dealer selling me mine without a deflector (or 1st aid kit) though :rolleyes:

SL wind deflector

I have both a current and pre-facelift SL brochure and a current price list. The wind deflector is shown as standard equipment on all models in all three.

If it helps I can scan the page and post the image.

brochure scans

As requested.

The scan 'brochure' is from the June 06 SL brochure, and the scan 'price list' from the June 09 SL price list.

Just out of interest, why is whether this thing is standard or not an issue ?
