just wait to roll the window down until after you hit the wiper.

You can adjust the nozzles with a straight pin. Just put it into the nozzle and move it in the direction you want it to go.

Just replaced my nozzles and adjusted with a pin. Nozzles are only about eight bucks at the dealer. Easy to replace.

If you've ever wondered why bimmers are so quiet at speed, its because there is no ditch molding between the windshield and the A-pillar.

American cars all have this gutter so that our pant's dont get wet very thing dosen't happen. These ditches cause wind noize out the wazoo.

I agree with the other post. Don't run the wipers in the rain and enjoy the fact that you can have a normal conversation at 100mph.

use rain x...after applying it theres no need for washers, even in heavy rain! i apply it once a month or so, depending on how often it rains

The drivers side wiper wipes up to the edge of the front window. All the water it moves off the window goes to the side. The only way to have this not happen would be to have a different wiper system, like some Mercedes have one large wiper for the whole front window. Wouldn't recommend doing that to your BMW.

There are also add ons that you can put on your door - plastic window attachments that form a shield from rain and water. I think they look cheap on your door window.

Face it - you've got a sleek, aerodynamic sports car! Just roll the windows up before spraying yourself!
