I don't think it's available yet, even though it's listed as an accessory. Kinda like the high wing spoiler listed for the 2010's. It didn't ever come out to my knowledge.

I'm still on the fence. They must work. You see them in all the high-end verts. My one concern is that its one more thing to try to fit in the trunk when you're not using it.

Just wish it was a little more affordable, or came with the car like the tonneau cover.

Probably will be like waiting for the damn 4 pack gauges that took almost a year to become available.

So is the windscreen just for the benefit of the backseat passengers or does it affect the airflow in the front seats as well?

This Windscreen is made to "lay flat" in the rear seat area ... see last picture above.
It will also fold onto itself so it is half the size of the picture above and does not take up too much room in the trunk.
I put the top down on my convertible before I left the dealer and don't plan on putting the top up until November ... maybe December.

There were predrilled holes on either side of the rear seat panel (toward the door) which allows you to insert a pin on the Windscreen.
The Windscreen has a molded piece that fits around and behind the rear seat.
Very easy to install. I was told that this unit was tested at 140 MPH and it never moved.

Does it further inhibit the driver side seat going back? Mine's as far as the rear sides will let me go.

I had ordered this but it was not available. I then just canceled it for now. Does your wife have long hair and how well does it work on it not letting her hair slap her in the face? That is the only reason I wanted it.

If it works the same as the one GM has for the G6 vert, I'm not overly impressed. It tends to blow over at high speeds...115km/hr or faster or if its windy out!

Here are a couple of pictures of what I believe are the windscreen attachment points.
The first shows the pin hole on the passenger side where the front of the windscreen attaches.
The second shows a slot next to the back seat on the drivers side. I assume this is where the back of the windscreen attaches.
Seems really straight forward.

I will know soon enough. I have a one on order from gmpartsdirect.com. It was $309.05 shipped as stated above.

Works abundant and looks like Chevy fabricated it themselves. They accomplish acceptable vehicles, so what's that acquaint you about the windscreen? As far as superior goes, it's up there. The alone botheration you ability acquisition is with the effectiveness.
