MNR wind deflector

Has anyone got MNR's wind deflector fitted on their car? How much difference does it make? In a little experiment putting my hand on top of the scuttle, I have to get the top of my hand level with my eye to deflect most of the wind over my head. I was wondering how effective the real thing is.

I am not the taller person and I was worried that it might restrict my vision. Now that my car is on the road, there is a lot of bonnet / cycle wing visible above the scuttle and so there is room for a deflector without blocking out any view of the tarmac. I'm only interested if it keep enough wind out of my face to just wear shades in the summer rather than a helmet.

I went out in Andy D (Rizla) car with the wind deflector, and I found it very worthwhile, but I am 6'2". There was no vision issues, and the wind just ruffled my hair (what here is left)
So I have one to fit

How do they fit to the car? Bolts? Glue?

I used some foam tape to protect the mating surfaces then attached it using the mirror bolts all around...

That way it can be removed and replaced by the upcoming windscreen..
