I'm looking for a wind deflector for an XK8 convertible. The Jaguar wind deflector fits behind the seats.

Having heard all the pros and cons about wind deflectors I was offered a used one in good shape for $175 (the only other one I've seen was on a Jag Accessory website for $709!). I was told that the only way to install one was to drill holes in the leather! Well, upon receiving the deflector I installed it in about an hour with NO DRILLING. I was able to make a couple of brackets and install them in a non-invasive way. WHAT A DIFFERENCE in the amount of wind that gets into the car! I have owned convertibles for a long time, so being blown around at highway speeds is nothing new to me (and my wife) but this has made a great difference for long trips at highway speeds. I am not sure of the brand name of this particular deflector but it looks just like the one on the website for $709. Thanks to everyone who responded to my last letter for INFO on Wind Deflectors. If I knew how to put pictures on the site I would, but it looks good on the car too. Robert
