No more wind noise!

The best $30 I've ever spend....
With the top down its quiet, better than my 91 Maita, with the top up....
I cant even talk on the phone.. this rubber strip is making me loving the 451 a lot more.

Have two cabrios MY08 & 09. 08 quiet since new. 09, a new purchase creates LOTS of wind noise!

Only difference I can see is that the small black spoiler mounted on the 09 Tridion between the top of windshield and the front of the canvas is at a slight angle. I’d like to square it up but not sure how it is held in place screw or tape??

That being said a flare of rubber in the windshield gap could be a viable solution???
