    Coupe Wind Deflectors

    Can you get wind deflectors for a Coupe? I find I get a LOT of wind noise coming through the windows I guess as they have no metal frame at the top and just a seal, having said that without the metal frame etc round the top i'm not sure how the fitting would work on deflectors for a Coupe???

    Anyone know if there are deflectors? and even better pics of them on a coupe??

    Do you suffer the same irritating wind noises? When I first got the car I thought there was summin wrong with it coz of the noise, then realised it was just what was coming through the windows! lol

    Yeah same, Just I have a half hour drive up motorway every morning to work so would be nice to be able to stop it so I can enjoy the music on the way! If no Wind Deflectors then uprated speakers i'm thinking! :grin:

    No you can't.
    Where/how would you fit them when there is no frame for the window?

    I thought the same so I did check the seals but they all seem good. It's not like loads of air coming in through the seals or anything, just a lot of wind noise which I think is not being kept out very well.

    Checked that the windows are closing ok and in the right part of the seal etc, seems fine, ah well, nevermind, louder speakers it is! lol

    That was my point exactly in the first post, I couldn't see how and where you would fit them but as they say where there's a will there's a way. Thought someone might have come up with some clever little solution to allow coupe owners to have deflectors was all.

    I have the same problem and I'm pretty sure it's the door seal cause the passenger side is fine. Need to try a breakers yard to find one
