just added the windscreen

Received my windscreen in the mail last week, easy install... looks great... Love the etched XLR outline...no lighting...Haven't tried it at high speed, but seems to do the trick around town...there is a glare from lights in front of you, but I don't think it is a distraction, at least not at this point....

Mesh vs plastic

Not bad and I still think the GM Mesh looks much better, And just like our XLR'S they will be hard to find in the near future.. Since they are the original windscreen from GM they may be collectible along with our cars.. Our XLR'S will be a collector and I'll bet that the original GM mesh windscreen will be a sought after accessory.

Mesh windscreen

This is the first time i have seen the GM Mesh screen and to me it looks like an after thought. It does not look like it fits good to me there is no comparision to the looks of the glass windrestrictor. I have not bought one yet because my computer went out a few weeks ago and now that I have got over that expense the Holiday special has expired on the windrestrictor. Based on these pictures when I do buy it will be glass, not mesh.

The great thing is we all make choices based on our own taste enjoy!
I love the way the GM mesh looks on my XLR subtlety in what I was looking for also..

windrestrictor

Having had my restrictor for a number of months now, I believe the glass or whatever the material is, should either be cut at a slight angle or at least installed at an angle to eliminate the glare created from the lights in front of you that is then reflected off the restrictor and into the rearview mirror and windshield, I find it to be distracting at times. Does anyone else notice this..
This being said, I still prefer it over the mesh...
I think I will try to install it so that it is at a slight angle to see if that eliminates the glare....

thank you for the kind words

and all the business this forum has generated 2010 we are very appreciative of the XLR forum and its members and you lucky folks that have these beautiful roadsters!! Don give us a call and we can offer the neighborly discount k? AS far as glare doc, its typically something that is resolved with the slight angle of the windrestrictor for your XLR, the product comes with a built in angle if you will just for this reason, this should be something that is a non issue for the most part as you get acustom to the new accessory. How long have you had your windrestrictor from Kingpenn industries?
Sincerely,
Rebekkah Pennington

I just ordered the windrestrictor with the light kit. I have the wind restrictor on my Solstice that I had customized with "get in, hold on & shut up" I like it so much I ordered the does it return the favor one for my xlr. Only thing I would change is wish the lighting was brighter. Looks awesome at night but in daylight it doesn't show the graphics too well. But in my opinion the wind restrictor is the best!!!!

I bougt the wind restrictor and I'm very pleased with how it works. It does create a glare at night and I'm looking at having it tinted.

Ok, purchase my windrestrictor a few months ago but just took the car out last week. Installed it yesterday with the extreme light kit and i love it. It will be awhile before i do any topless driving since i live in Northern Maine, but love the look even with the top up. Like having all the choices of colors with the light kit. Awesome product!!!

Boys will be boys

The Windrestrictor has another possible advantage. When local youth find it fun to drop (from a high balcony), a water balloon onto the rear deck of your XLR waiting at traffic signals, I can report that the water spray is stopped by a Windrestrictor.
