I actually have seen something like that over here in the states but I canít recall on what...I feel like it was a German import of some type.

I have seen that here in the states. I have a 2018 Chevrolet Traverse that has a mesh screen that pops up when you open the sunroof. Not sure of the purpose and haven't cared to look into what it is for since I rarely use the sunroof (it was part of the options package that the wife liked).

i had it on a couple of my cars,

its used to deflect the wind to reduce the buffeting while driving at various speed. works great actually !

Pretty sure my '12 Regal GS had it... which is actually what that new Holden is today here in the US. It's for air buffeting and def caught the bugs!
