    Can anyone please find me the part number for this piece on our S550s?

    I'm thinking about making a wind diffuser similar to this one:

    What's that supposed to do? Just note, trying to outsmart dynamics engineers is usually a recipe for failure.

    It's just supposed to help reduce buffeting when the windows are down, since our rear windows don't pop open. People with 911s and current-gen Supras seem to be having success with the general design. It would be nice to eliminate some of the buffeting on track, where the side windows have to be open 100% of the time. Check out the third page of this thread and this article for more info.

    Thanks. Looks like those might be the right parts. For $34 total, I may give this a try. (Note that the diffuser in the top pic above goes for $79.95 a pair. :eek: )

    If it was a factory Porsche piece it would be carbon fiber and cost 500 per side.

    Those Porsche window foils actually get high ratings and seem to work. They almost look like they could be mounted right up on the GT350 also. Let us know if you get something put together. The open window at high speed is definitely annoying. Bugs also fly into the rear window area and get jammed at the bottom of the glass and difficult to extract.
