    Anything above about 25 it starts to move faster you go faster it clears lol. But yeah.. Just leave wipers off lol. Now mornings are damp I give it a one wipe in a morning to clear but do t use wipers generally (if I didn't get up so late I'd wipe it manually..)

    Still a rubbish design none the less. Who designs a car that wipes all the water from the windscreen onto the drivers window.

    That and the handbrake and armrest combination, really gets on my nervs. :asskicking:

    Lol I agree on the armrest/handbrake. One when cruising down the motorway but the fact in order to do handbrake it's easier just to move the thing up is a joke!

    If I did open the windows I'd contemplate getting the some of the deflectors.
