LightInSight (clear plastic lens installed on windshield)

[11/8/2003] Reviewed by: Keith Green -

Applicable to: '90 - '97 '99 +

A small plastic oval lens which attaches to your windshield with static cling. Enables you to view trafficlight indications without leaning forward to look up at the light.

I'm 6 ft tall, and ride with the seat leaned back. With the top up, I have to lean almost over the steering wheel to see the stoplight, and the LightInSight works in that I can just look thru it and see the traffic light change. You put the lens at the top of the windshield, and it takes some experimentation to determine the best location.

Getting the product was a pain. I ordered at, and their site said to expect it within 2 to 3 weeks. I bugged them after 3 weeks, and they charged my credit card, but still no lens. After several unanswered e-mails and a phone call eventually to the right person, I finally got the lens. Evidently, this "company" is run by one person at a BMW dealership in Cincinnati. I would hope my order was an isolated problem. I agree that overall it's a pretty expensive piece of cheap plastic, ($15), but I'm pretty happy with it.
