Windscreen

Has anyone ordered or installed the Windscreen Part # 68307694AA ?


I found one in Sacramento, CA at a Dealer for $439.00 plus shipping. I can wait to get one as I do go to Sacramento a lot to see my son. Just wondering how well they work and I think they are Glass also. Looks larger than the stock one which is almost useless. The one that the Saturn Sky uses is nice so I expect this one will be similar.


If you have one please post pictures and how you like it, cost etc.....


Thanks, Ken

Ouch, that's rather pricy. I've seen the windscreen at shows. It's rather tall, so operating the convertible top is a bit cumbersome if you are sitting in the driver's seat. No problem if you are outside of the car. Looks nice.

My 350Z had a glass windscreen, and I have the stock mesh on my 124. Honestly, I think that putting up the side windows is what quiets the cabin down and reduces wind more than anything else.

I too believe the cost is a little to high I think they will come down in the future. As all accessories do. The picture posted above was from the Dealer in Sacramento I was referring g to. Hope I can se other posts from others who have purchase one of these

Try Quirk parts on line for Mopar part numbers. They have good discounts and shipping cost isn't crazy like some on line stores.

Surely would be a pain putting the roof down from inside the car? Unless you were very tall.

There are numerous Mopar parts places listing it for $291 to $294. But, there are some led lit plexiglass screens that one could get for the solstice that had the logo show up in red....I'd think that would look even cooler if there were one for the spider.

ssh16 from the miata forums produces acrylic versions in short + tall versions with or without logos. If someone gets him a vector file of the 124 logo, I'm sure he'll add that to his offerings for $120. He also offers a LED kit to illuminate the logo.

Hay guy's how about listing the vendors sites for your info as to Mopar part Places to purchase from? I will look into the suggestion you had for ssh16, thanks ameridan


Also not to hard to stop and get out of vehicle to put the top is if necessary doing while driving is dangerous and when stopped it only takes a second to get out and in again.

I figured ameridan would know the answer. I'll have to look into it. I really liked the one I had on the Solstice.
