Default Which wind deflector in a C70 '06

Hi all,
When i bought my secondhand C70 a month or 2 ago there was no winddeflector inlcuded. THe OEM are quiet expensive.
I've found Airax as a substitute, which is a little cheaper. Which wind deflectors do you use and what do I keep in mind when buying one?
Thanks in advance for letting me know.

PS I live in Boston Massachusetts region, so if you one somewhere around, please let me know.

OEM is definitely best... I did buy a "cheap" imitation on eBay a while back... worked great as a wind deflector but unlike the genuine article it doesn't fold in half so there's no way to stow it in the car when not in use, meaning you have to decide at the start of the journey whether you are going to be a two-seater or a 4 with no deflector for the entire trip ... I bought a genuine replacement which I'm much happier with, but still have the old one because it's size makes it very tricky/expensive to ship... if you're ever in the Philadelphia area qive me a shout and I could let you have it for cheap

The OE one also has zipped panels to access the rear seat for shopping bags etc, but I have to admit I’ve never used them in anger!
