You should squirt before wiping... It's all a bit pointless the other way round...

I think it's the idea that you can squirt WITHOUT wiping immediately - especially when you have stax of muk on the screen and wanna soften it a bit. The fact that you can control WHEN to wipe is the nice part.

Well, wouldn't call it a "vw motor", but it's aircooled and a boxer. Similar layout as acvw. The Citroen though is a front wheel drive, has 4 tappet covers rather than the 2 on acvw and runs 2 camshaft drive belts. Will post a pic of engine layout later.

I sadly let go of this girl a while back now.
No time (or Mandelas) to work on cars at this point.
