"Reasons Why You Should Try Jay's
Mercedes 230 SLK Windscreen"
I know there are others on the market.
I’m sure they are all good. I have no experience
with any of the others except the MBZ net windscreen
that came with my 2013 SLK250.
You can find Jay on e bay. You can get the cost from
e bay or direct from Jay.
I wanted a low cost windscreen because I found when
looking out the MBZ net windscreen the view to the
rear was to dark and so was the cockpit.
I wanted a simple clear one that I did not have a
lot invested in because I tend to only keep my cars
a short time. I’m not mechanically inclined at all
so before I ordered I called Jay and had him send me
He was very patient speaking to me and e mailed the
instructions right away. The instructions seemed
easy enough that even I could do it.
I ordered on Sunday and received it on Wednesday.
The packing was superb. In fact it took me longer to
unwrap it then install it.
The quality was as professional as you can get.
Rounded and polished edges, perfectly clear.
Everything needed to install was included except a
ruler. Installation took me all of 10 minutes
because I went slow.
Once installed it looked great and was very solid.
Just what I was looking for. Although your supposed
to wait 24 hours before you drive top down …patience
is not one of my virtues so I gave it a test run.
Top down it is at a minimum as good as the MBZ wind
screen. I personally think it does an even better
job and cuts out much more of the buffeting then the
MBZ net one. But the main thing is I could see
behind me without any problem.
With the top up it was perfect. I could see out the
rear and it let more light in then before. It really
opened up the cockpit.
In full disclosure, I have absolutely no affiliation
with Jay or his company except as a satisfied
I was looking around for a glass windscreen for
my 2012 SLK350. I did not like the plastic
windscreen that came with the car since it really
obstructed the view thru the back view mirror.
There was very little available
windscreen avail on the market for my car. When I
contacted Jay, he was more than happy to quickly
fabricate a custom pexiglass windscreen for my SLK.
The windscreen was easily installed with
self-adhesive tape and the detailed instruction
The results was fantastic and OEM
looking. We can now enjoy driving top down without
the wind buffeting that may mess up my wife's hair!
I highly recommend Jay's windscreen if you have a
newer model SLK350 (R172). Hal.

I received the windscreen I
purchased from on the 3rd day after you sent it out.
It actually took longer to remove
the packaging then it took to screw it into place.
I've had it installed for a couple of weeks, now and
I am really enjoying it.
t is at least as efficient as the
net mesh screen provided by Mercedes, with the added
bonus that I can actually use my rear view mirror.
The only shortcoming is that washing the rear window
of the car requires that I partially raise the roof,
so I must wash that rear window from time-to-time

I got my windscreen for my 2005 Mercedes SLK 350. It
fits perfectly and works great! Thank you so much
for getting it made and out so quickly. I'll leave
feed back on Ebay.

I received the windscreen for my SLK 230 in what
appeared to be record time! Thanks for the quick
I installed it (it requires a star wrench, similar
to an alan wrench, vice a Phillips head screw
driver) in minutes (it took longer to unpack and
take off the protective film and tape than install).
I did use the self-taping screws on the edges, since
it appeared we'd get some vibration if I didn't.
I'll take the car out on the freeway today and let
you know what I think...if the Plexiglas is more
efficient than the black mesh original equipment
windscreen (it certainly is more transparent and
easier to see via the rear view mirror).

Jay, I just installed the windscreen on the SLK
today. As you said it installed in minutes including
the 2 self taping screws. Sure makes a difference!
Thanks for a great product and service,

Received the Mercedes 230 slk windscreen
yesterday. Installed in about ten minutes. Look
great and sure does the job. Thanks again. David
the screen arrived today! What service. I was
able to install it without much trouble, but a
very tight fit with the 2 screws. It makes a big
difference, my wife thanks you. Thanks for the
prompt attention, Jim Hardin
As you promised, the windscreen was installed in
about 7 minutes. It dramatically cuts the wind on
the back of the neck which is great. A nice surprise
is that we were not charged any customs duties by
Canada Customs. Your communication was great and we
would be happy to recommend you.

Just want to thank you for a great product and
service. Its great to purchase a product that
lives up to the testimonials and installs as
easily as stated. Besides it looks good on the
car and I like not having to remove it when the
top is up.
Thanks again for a great product at a great
Hello folks! I bought a windscreen about 6 weeks
ago. What I can tell you is that I'm very pleased.
It was easy to attach, there is no vibration and it
works well. I would recommend purchasing from this
seller anytime. You will not be disappointed. H
Just wanted to let you know I receive the windscreen
yesterday and it is absolutely wonderful. No more
messed up hair while driving. I will have the top
down more often.
I just received the windscreen for my Mercedes
230 SLK, and what a dream it is....looks excellent
and installed easy, and I'm a woman, so you know it
was simple. I ordered the etched lettering (Mercedes
230 SLK) and my Son put that on facing the back, and
it looks so classy. Thanks for everything. I love it
almost as much as my new car.
windscreen Saturday, installed it Sunday and
Monday drove all day with the top down.
Easy to install,
simplistic in its design but extremely effective
buffer to wind turbulence, works great.
Fits well even
with the top up. Looks factory with the top
Thank you for a
