I cant point you in the direction of any but if you do any off roading I wouldnt suggest buying one. Most of the time the bug deflectors and window rain gaurd thingys are made of that tinted plastic and one decent hit from a branch on a trail and there goes whatever you spent.

Nice ride, not sure what you are expecting the deflector to do, I don't have a deflector but the hood guard I have looks great won't break off and keeps the bug guts off the front of my hood and protects the paint from chips.

do these help at all with wind noise? MY thought is that by changing the flow, the " mystery wind" over the rear view mirror will disappear.

They tend to make the airflow a little more turbulent. If my top's up, I get an occasional flap that wasn't there before.
