  • Wipers

    Which are you using?

    No idea what I've got on mine at the moment but I've got Aquapel on the screen and the wipers judder like crazy. I think the Aquapel might be wearing off so I'm going to buy another and reapply that. I'm also going to replace the wipers while I'm at it so any you think are better than others?

                        had aquapel on my last two motors. Awesome, if applied 100% correctly.

                        i had to redo my first application because i didnt thoroughly clean off the glass, so the blades bobbled over the screen when i put them on...

                        It's awesome, but can be a bit distracting when driving in the rain, no wipers on when the water just beads up and off the screen!!!

                            24k on mine so far and still doing fine, at about 12k I was thinking about getting new ones on the service plan but applied rain-x and since then they seem perfect when occasionally now used

                              Interesting post i found on a site called autoblog...:

                              Autoblog reader Josh Wardell, who loves his MINI Cooper very much thank you, has posted an interesting comparison test between the well known windshield treatment called Rain-X and a lesser known competitor named PPG Aquapel that's usually used by service professionals rather than vehicle owners. We hadn't heard much about PPG Aquapel so we were interested to learn which product Wardell found to more effectively whisked away rainwater over a period of time.

                              The results from Wardell's unofficial comparison test were surprising. After having applied both products to separate sides of his MINI's windshield, Wardell waited for rain and then taped the results at various stages, all the way from day one to day 72. What we learn from Wardell's accompanying video is that both windshield treatements need speeds above 40 mph to whisk rain away effectively, but that the windshield wipers dramatically reduce the effectiveness of Rain-X over time, whereas the PPG Aquapel side was still effective after 60 days.
