I think it is only for decoration. I can't see the traffic lights either way. With the tops off I just look over the windshield as that is easier. With the either top on I have to lean forward.

Its part of the touring pack. I didn't take it off for the first few months, i paid for it why remove it. Then i got smart and ditched it, I can see much better now.

No, not part of the touring pack. It comes with the hard top (obviously standard on all Exige), regardless of whether or not the touring pack has been ordered.

It's function is solely to 'finish off' the look of the installation of the hard top. Covers the mounting brackets and top to windscreen contact area with felt.

Yes, my non-touring pack Exige had it too.

I think it will also protect your head in a crash from hitting the big screws that hold the top on.

As Patricko said, there for protection but also helps to pull down the hard top when installed from my experience. There was a thread before, one can easily trim few inches off the front but still leave a little lip to engage the windshield surround. Hardest part is cutting the fiberglass then can easily cut/sand the foam, then contact cement the felt back on.
