I like the Boxster wind screen much better, but I don't think a similar design will work with the Z3. The Boxster has a 1 piece roll over bar, and the windscreen fits in it without having much side flex from the 2 hoops. The Z3 has 2 separate hoops that may not tolerate a solid sheet between them.

: I've been playing around with some plastic mesh material installed in the area of the roll hoops to make the V5 Clear Windscreen look like the one on the Boxster. I think it looks a lot better. No I don't want to make my Z3 look like a Pcar, but I think that it dresses up the hoops and the quite a bit. These are for cosmetic purposes only. It doesn't allow the center portion to fold down or be removed. They simply install in between the roll hoops and the V5 Clear Windscreen.

: I'm contemplating offering the mesh for use with the V5 screens. What do you think?
