$500 on OEM accessories

I just found out that I won a $500 gift card from my dealership! What should I buy with it?? The car is still under warranty and I don't need service anytime soon. I already have the R170 shorty antenna.

Does the card have an expiration date? If not, then keep it for future use.

Yeah, it expires a year from now.

I have one of the Wind Deflectors sold by that company, but not an OEM one. Is the OEM one worth it?

I don't have one, as I drive an r170, but I've heard quite a few rave about it on here...

I'd get the windblocker if the price wasn't so prohibitively high. So far I haven't seen a non-OEM version that I like. If you can get your dealer to give you the windblocker, that would seem like a great choice to me!

I'll call them up for a quote and see what they say. I see someone on here selling the unit for $350 though :/

I ordered from mypartsdirect and it ended up at $482 after a "googleparts" discount which was mentioned elsewhere on the forum, I believe.
