Great delivery as always, arrived the next day. I have the U shape roll bars so I was expecting this to be an easy job, unfortunately it wasn't. Thankfully MX5 parts have included their own set of instructions, as the IL motorsport ones are about as useful as a chocolate teapot! They did show me that I had two washers missing though.
I couldn't use the mounting screws shown in the instructions, as the rollbar mounting plate covers these. So after finding some replacement washers and a lot of fiddling around I finally managed to attach the windblocker onto the bolts securing the rollbar. The only downside is if I try to fold it down it hits the rear window, so it's permantly in the upright position.
It fits the shape of the rollbars perfectly though, and matches the interior of the MX5 very well. It also does not greatly affect rear vision, so I'm quite happy having it fixed upright.
As for doing the job it's designed to, it does it very well! I've noticed a vast reduction in cabin turbulence, I didn't even need to use the heater on the way to work this morning. Plus I'm sure the stereo sounds better with less noise going on.
I can recommend this product, but be aware if you already have roll/style bars fitted it may take a bit of fiddling to fit.
