Question Roof rack wind deflector/fairing? Help!

Hi all,

I am looking for a roof rack wind deflector/fairing for the new roof rack I just bought (Fiat Standard (71805713) for 3dr Grande Punto).

I'm not even sure if I am referring to it with the right phrasing/wording .

I am sure they are not model specific and carry across different car brands.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Cheers,
Sam

I am looking for something like these:

Never seen these before.
Surely, when the rack is empty, you take it off rather than carry it around creating drag and using fuel. When carrying anything on the rack, the deflector will do little, apart from reducing the tendency of stuff to lift at speed. So go slower.

Careful you don't chafe the roof paint, as it will move.

My apologies, obviously I must be getting tired lol.

Yeah, I googled until my fingers bled . I feel like there must be another word for them or something. Roof Fairing seems to be the most common term.

They mustn't really be a 'thing' in the UK.

Would like one for two reasons:
1. Noise Reduction
2. Euro look

DIY ones seem the way to go. Might have a crack at it.

Answer me this:
Do these three Puntos have Wind deflectors, sun roofs, or both?
