I think all of you had better think about this...."You cannot satisfy all the people all of the time"...and

"Let the buyer beware"

Now, make up your mind...

Also, because it is placed closer to the cockpit (actually, inside the cockpit), there is less opportunity for wind to wrap around behind the headrest and back in through the middle. I put my hand behind my headrest and there was a lot of wind back there.

One other thing. Will you be able to illuminate this? If you added an LED bar to the bottom of this, it might not look very good (since this one is not burried inside the trunk). If you can't illuminate this one, that might help people make up their mind.

I am excited to get ahold of one of these. Your products are great, and customer service is even better.

As to the question of enforcement of state laws. Generally the idea is to reduce confusion to the motoring public (some of which are not too smart) what is a police, fire, ambulance, undercover car turning on lights consealed under grills or where ever, fire police or official volunteer's private vehicles as they rush into action.

The major thing is our WR lighting canNOT revolve, rotate, flash, oscillate or constant move in some fashion. Here is a sectiion of NYS DMV law:

[/S8. The provisions of this subdivision shall not be applicable to the driver of a vehicle from another state or foreign jurisdiction which vehicle has colored lights affixed but not revolving, rotating, flashing, oscillating or constantly moving if the lights on such vehicle comply with the laws of the state or home foreign jurisdiction in which the vehicle is registered.

The other thing is brightness rearward, blinding the following driver. Robert's WR certainly is no flashlight shining in the eyes of the guy behing you.
So riding around with a blue-red-green-amber light always on could be confusing to some I guess. That is why I plan to connect my up with my brake light. Those of you that go to car shows, flip that switch and it illuminates constantly.

If you suddenly feel warm, it is just me passing through grinning!

3 questions:

Any issues with the seats slid all the way back /tilted back, damage to leather, rubbing etc?

When will it be on your site for purchase (price?)?

What's the lead time looking like?


Thanks
JV

I have these same concerns:
I held off buying a windstrictor because I donot want to disturb the inners of the trunk area cavity! So this is a windstrictor I would definitely be interested in!

YES It has a space laser cut out to fit the light strip perfectly! You will not see the LED bulbs just the illumination on the etching and the edge it self.

Cool, that is one reason I came out with this new design. There is absolutely no signs of the first version causing any problems what so ever it is only an
8th of an inch thick, but there are still some people that don't like the idea of it mounting there for some reason so the new design should be perfect for everyone.

Very cool, any word on the ability to change colors (aside from changing out the strip)?

Out of curiosity, are you trying to help Robert sell his product with your sarcasm? If a question is asked that may have already been answered, and you feel it is bothersome, don't answer it. Not everyone spends all day on this forum and by some remote chance, may have missed it the first time around.

Huh? Were you talking to me? You might consider quoting whatever post you are referring to for clarity purposes. Interesting first post at any rate. Welcome to the forum
