    I do hear you, and appreciate your pain having suffered similar issues in the past. All part of the fun of driving a cabriolet.

    You could wear a cap? Not a flat cap, more like a Nike cap.

    As teenagers me and my mate used to drive around in his Fiat Punto with the washer jets twisted around so they were pointing forward, then everyone we spotted waiting to cross the road we'd let cross in front of us and then soak them.

    Those were the days.

    Why do we all have to grow up ha! I think of some of the things i did as a kid and i cringe, you don't appreciate how bad or irritating it is until your on the receiving end! Having said that I think I still have a lot more fun left in me yet! I'm not a fan of getting wet or having my clean car squirted though!

    I have an s3 washer bottle fitted, 2litres bigger nearly than stock, perfect for squirting people!

    I used to twist the rear washer round 90degrees on my fiesta. Great for drive-by's.
