    Am I confused by what auto wipers actually are? If I click my stalk up I can then decide how sensitive it is and then it comes on when there is water on the screen, dependant on how sensitive it is set to be?

    no thats the intimitent wipe when you click it up 1 and you can adjust the wiper timing to either short or long

    the rain sensor wipers is when you click the wiper stalk up as if your putting it to intermittent but the sensor detects how fast the rain hits the
    screen so if its very heavy then it wipe fast and if it minor or very light then it will be slower and the sensor controls how fast or slow the wipers go

    yeah just dont forget to turn them of if it was raining when you started your long motorway drive if you stop at the car wash as you get home the guy wont be impressed with them when they rip his cloth out of his hand and throws water all over his crotch lol

    I did feel a little guilty
