Windrestrictor Received - Photos

I received my Windrestrictor today via UPS. The shipping was pretty quick and I am extremely happy with what I received. The quality is top notch and they made a custom design exactly the way I wanted it. Here's a picture comparing my standard windscreen to the tinted Windrestrictor that I received. The Porsche windscreen looks a little smaller just because of the angle of the camera. They're actually exactly the same size. Obviously from the big "S" on the Windrestrictor you can probably guess that my Boxster is an S model.

Windrestrictor Install

Installation is a snap, literally. You just pop the outer surround off the Porsche windscreen and snap it onto the Windrestrictor. Color photo instructions are included which recommend maybe using a mallet and screw driver to get the surround piece off, but I was able to do it pretty easily just with my hands. Also included was a special cleaning spray, felt cloth, and clean gloves. Obviously they want you to be able to install it without finger prints. The spray worked great after my install to clean the Windrestrictor up nicely.

S

My car is pretty much debadged - no hood crest, no wheel crests, and no "Boxster" on the rear trunk - just a red "S". So I didn't really want the Porsche crest on my Windrestrictor. Instead I carried over the S from the trunk. Windrestrictor matched the font perfectly based on a couple digital photos I e-mailed them. I think they can pretty much copy anything. The S is etched in silver on the tinted windscreen. They can do a large array of colors, but I thought the silver would look classy on the tinted windscreen.

Ass-istant

I don't want to disappoint you guys. Of course if I'm showing off some new goodie I have to include a photo of my Assistant showing off the goods. Here she is enjoying a warm, sunny day in California and admiring my new Windrestrictor.

Yes yes nice... er... screen. I think our friend Kirk has already died and gone to Heaven. He just doesn't realize it yet.

Kirk, I took a look at that photo and the first thing that came to my mind was: "Nice 'S' "

(Sorry...I really have no control over what pops into my brain sometimes.)

Hey Kirk, I got to lookin' at that thing and it got me to wondering. It's pretty dark, tint-wise. You have any trouble seein' through it w/ the rearview? (Like especially dusk or dawn??) Just curious.

Looks pretty cool, especially with the babe showcasin' it.

The wheels are just BSA wheels with a BSA center cap. Maybe I'll get a fancier center cap in the future, it's just not a priority now. The hood is a carbon fiber hood. Pictures are attached...

Honestly I just got it in the mail yesterday, so I can't really comment on visibility through the tint at night. But my plastic rear window deflects and distorts headlights quite a bit at night and is already pretty much useless. I mostly use my side mirrors at night, so I don't really anticipate any issues.
