      Whyyyyy, I want that speed thats a wipe every second but it keeps going super saiyan. I read the owners manual and maybe Im doing it wrong or reading it wrong, can it be disabled? My mkvi gti is better, even when I come through a drive through it turns off and sometimes they stay super saiyan

      You have the little switch on top of the stalk it has 4 settings. Each determines the cycle length. Also the cycle length depends on the amount of rain being sensed on the windshield.

      You can turn off the rain sensor in the main screen settings. It reverts to normal intermittent op. I did it on my jetta b/c the rain sensor never works right.

      I have the same complaint. Even at the least sensitive setting the wipers go way too fast, very often faster than low in the non-intermittent setting. They worked flawlessly in my 2017 Gti, but like crap in my 2019 Tiguan.
