      Does that wiper sit in the middle of the windshield or seat all the way down?

      SEARCH IS YOUR FRIEND!!!!

      I've posted all about my car and the bonrath kit....but here you go again (last time I swear)



      -Resting position of the wiper arm can be anywhere in range of its sweep
      -install directions can be found on my website

      I've had the single wiper since I bought the car first mod. I love it hell of alot better than 2 wipers.Here are some pix on the driverside i noticed it doesnt hang over the edge like it does on the pass. side.

      how is the performance of these wipers? difficlty of installation? and do you just order replacement blades from bonrath?

      what's the benefit of this?

    15. 03-26-2003 05:30 PM #15
      -wipers work just as good, if not a bit better than stock
      -replacement blades can be purchased at any auto parts store
      -install is kind of a pain, see my website for full instructions.

      i got this on my car.. i have to say it works a hell of alot better than the stock ones. one thing i loved that it got rid of was the stop mark that the left blade was making when it hit 90degrees (where it stopped upright). i mean since i use rainX . the only thing i dislike about the bonrath single wiper is the notch i had to cut in my plastic cowl. and the german directions , n no sticker......????

      but as for the wiper in it's stopped postion thats up to you and where you want to make the stop at. it can be adjusted to anywhere..


    17. 01-29-2004 02:19 AM #17
      should i gt some rainex, I heard it wasn't good or something but I've been tempted to try it lol.

      Ive heard that the bonrath wiper kit can either sit all the way down or in the center of windshield. Is that true? If not, how do you get it straight up?

      all depends on how you attach the linkage to the motor

      I have it and love it

      Aren't two wipers better than one?

      Exactly my thoughts. Can someone go into more detail on how a single wiper can cover more surface area, or be more effective, than two smaller wipers?

      yeah i think 2 wipers are better. And when i look at the black GTI, the one-wiper thing makes it look like its incomplete.

      I used the shorter aero arm and the longer aero blade

      ok, this is seriously, the sexiest mod EVER.... i wanted to do this for a while, but never knew anyone actually offered it.... now here is my question to you guys.... who sells these kits, cuz i went to the new RPI website and they dont have them anymore....

      how much would this cost, and does this involve removing the entier "old" assembly and istalling a new motor and a single swing arm and stuff??? cheers and thanks alot for your help!!!!

      i hope tobe the next on the list with this wicked mod.

      oh and by the way, to the guys that already have this... does it work well??? does it actually clean off the entire area and does it work well in heavy rain??

      cheers,
      Nick

      This picture has just sodomized my vast imagination...i.e. I want to violate this car in ways I can't even understand.

      With regards to the wiper, though....has anyone figured out how to go all out and use the Mercedes single wiper system? That is where its at! The wiper arm extends as it points toward the corners of the windshield. It looks amazing when it it spraying water off rally style!

      Its only a Volkswagen. Not a Mercedes.

      And doing a single wiper...cough, cough...the Honda way makes it look as such. If you are gonna do something like this to be unique, you should just make it count.
