Hi all,
I think there ought to be some method of removing rain drops from a rear window on sedans. I am agrannoyed at my W203 when it rains in Adelaide Australia because the rain drops stay on the rear glass, the sun is quite high in the sky, even in winter, and you can't see out because of the bright array of drops blocking the view.
I have tried Rainex, but it doesn't last very long. Fortuneately it doesn't rain very often here in Adelaide, South Australia (the driest State in the driest continent), unlike our fellow Australians in Queensland, who have had state wide floods, and a cyclone the size of Katrina to contend with.
Anyway, that's my 2 cents worth.

besides the EVO no other sedan currently sold has a rear wipe, simply because sedans do not need it. Wagons and hatchs have it because of the dirt that flys up from the slipstream. On a sedan the rear window is more forward towards the car and the window doesnt get dirty.

What next? Wipers for side windows ... rear view (exterior) mirrors ... tail light lenses ... license plate(s)?
