Will this be available for the standard 500 too?

Not sure if I understand your question correctly but this is an accessory you can add to any 500 Cabrio

I think they are confused. Unless you have cut the roof off your car, this is only for the 500C, not the 500. It's so you don't deafen your passengers with wind.

How does this look with top totally closed (up)? In other words does it block out the window when the top is up?
Its a mesh so you can see through it, but it does sit an inch lower than the top of the convertibles window. Ive had mine since day 1 and I didnt have the back window tinted because the mesh effectively blocks a good % of sunlight.

Just added the cabrio windscreen to my 500c it looks really good:) installation instructions were kind of vague so looking at the pics on here really helped

Does it help keep wind buffering down? On MINI it helped keep windo noise down and helped keep the cabin area warm on cold days

It does reduce the buffeting a little (no matter what other say it does help a smidge) but its by no means a big difference because the top down folds to about the same level as the screen. The mesh is closer to the rear seats so there is a change, but it is not dramatic at all. I like if for the look and the rear shading...its not nearly as important for the wind reduction as it would be on other cars where the top folds into them and the shield is needed to breakup the air flow.
