How much difference does it make? I don't really have any issue with the turbulence, but maybe it makes a difference when it's cold? How come you're selling it? I see you have a cab still.

Makes a big difference. It really reduces the wind turbulence from behind substantially.

Oh God......whether they work or not they just look horrendous (and pretentious I would add).

I can't even tell you what I think if I see one of those and thankfully I never do on 911s.

Only my opinion I'd add!!

I use mine some of the time, and not some of the time. If I am by myself and have no interest in using the audio system, no deflector. I like the wind and raw engine noise. If I am with my wife, deflector. It makes conversation or listening to the sound system possible at P-speeds. I'll admit that I am less sensitive than most to appearances (it's the feeling of performance that thrills me), and I love to go places with my wife. At her altitude, not using the deflector starts to bother her ears after a while. As much as I love my car, I love her more.

They make a significant difference. And makes the car look a bit more like the highly desirous Boxster! (That's for Tom).

I use it and it's a huge difference in terms of turbulence in the car.

Have it off when I use the back seat with my kids. On cool mornings and evenings, it's the difference between having the top up or down.

This is an extra one that I have from a previous car.

Pretentious???

I don't understand this at all. Exactly what does one pretend to be, when using the deflector?

I took mine out of the car. I put it on once just to see how. I am not a fan of how it looks on the car. Like edgy said it looks like a boxter. I have kids so I need the seats and the frunk space. Too cold= top up. Windy=hat. Too loud=sport mode.
