    I'm very tempted to do it myself, the only thing that puts me off is having to stop the car every now and again on a long journey to clean the rear window which is a dirt magnet! The rear wiper is cack but at least it makes a little rainbow shape to see out of...decisions decisions

    cheers!

    lol i dewipered my previous car, and i can honestly i didnt wipe it once, i cleaned the car once a week, i travelled miles and miles, and it never got that bad that i had to wipe it.

    Even after a week of terrible weather, the window doesnt get bad..

    Do ittt

    I've de wipered a couple of things myself in the past (polo, cavalier lol) and not really been inconvenienced by it - I might just be being a pussy because it's the most I've ever spent on a car

    However, sticking a 15 quid glass grommet in there is hardly irreversible, so I need to have a word with myself

    I wash the car at least once a week anyway, might get some rain-x next time I'm in the UK and that's bound to help

    But I still might wait till I lower it...then take the ass-wiper off and maybe the badges (rear audi rings, A3 script and the S-lines off the doors) to get the full effect

    It'll get done sometime, if i don't like it i can always change it back! Just thought of a little advantage of taking the badges off...won't catch on me wash mitt or rip the polishing rags like they do now - saving me a few seconds cleaning time at least!

    Well, 20-spoke rims take ages to clean so every bit of time I win back is a goodun
