If u did not want wind....do not purchase a convertible.
The point is some of us have "regular" passengers, let's call them "wives". I like to have the windows down but depending on weather conditions and even not, at highway speeds, it can be a little turbulent sometimes. It's nice to have the option of cutting down on the wind sometimes, especially long hauls. I think this accounts for the percentage of us who have just got the plain version, no lights and even no etching. Back to the wives, I find that they can be the bone of contention and like sex, sometimes they want it and other times, no (referring to the wind).

@JohnWR, General Motors tested and approved both versions of the WindRestrictor® brand product. WindRestrictor® is the only wind deflection company in the world licensed by General Motors, as well as by Ford and Mopar.

Good to know, I didn't even know that was an option.

Bought one last year and loved the design draft but didn't necessarily like the actual version so haven't installed it yet. I don't mind the wind but my passengers complain about the wind.

I have a custom etched Wind Restrictor and leave it in place either top up or top down. Enjoy your new ride and get ready to have a permagrin.

OP Here,

I decided on the "claimed" Saturn-Approved, Dealer-Installed, plexiglass wind screen that I supplied a link for in my opening post. I chose the plain clear plexiglass version for a low purchase price. I ordered it and now have it. It seems to be of excellent quality.

Pick-up day for the car is coming soon. My patience is wearing thin.

Almost seems like you did not read this thread. You bought a Windrestrictor brand windscreen from their ebay site (here is there website https://windrestrictor.com/ ) . They are the only GM authorized seller of wind screens. They are a sponsor here, and offer discounts (typically 15%) to members here.

They are great wind screens. But windscreens can only do so much. A lot of people by them for the lighted and custom design features to custom mod their car.

Enjoy the car
