German term or phrase:Dachdüne
Taken from a brochure describing accessories for a car, specifically a section outlining the different designs you can select for the roof:
Sie fällt durch die beklebte Dachdüne auch seitlich gesehen sofort ins Auge.
Die gelb beklebte Dachdüne deutet schon von der Seite an, dass dieses Auto etwas Außergewöhnliches zu bieten hat.
Any idea what is meant by "Duene" in this context? I'd originally thought it just meant the stickers stretched over the tops of the side of the car, but now I think it may be referring to a specific feature.
