    Hi All

    Just a quickie ! Our first thread so be gentle with the replies ! :Rofl1:

    Decided we have had enough of the internal screen cover so want an external one.

    Found this company : Silver Products who make a copy of the original 'Silver-Screen' cover.

    Just wondered if anyone has used either of these and could give me an idea of what to go for.

    The copy by the way is half the price of the original item !!!:Doh:

    Thanks

    Don't know about the Silver Products version have used Silver Screens for years and know they work well, and last for years, one pair I had I used on 2 different vans same base of course, these were still working well when we changed and went with the van. these were at least 7 years old. We only changed then as we changed from Fiat to Renault.

    Thanks for the reply Dave.

    As the seller explained to me : Silver Screen : BMW of the screen world
    Silver Product : Skoda of the screen world

    You pays your money eh .............. :Eeek:

    Would say though perhaps Silver Screen no longer exist cus I am darned if I can find a website !!!!!

    Hi
    We have the "Foldstar Silver Screen" external screens and are very pleased with them

    Although we have not any experience with any other make, we did buy direct from their website and the gentleman who was very helpful, at the time he also had used Silver Screen Products for our vehicle :thumb:
