    Default Steinmetz Roof Spoiler

    Right then peeps. A while ago we were discussing whether this roof spoiler would allow the rear washer jet to hit the rear screen. The answer I got back from Rossiters (who phoned Steinmetz to confirm) is that the Spoiler does infact impede the washer jet.

    Steinmetz have said though that in their experience the washer jet hits the lip of the spoiler and then falls onto the rear screen.

    I said I'd like to see it in action before parting with my cash. I'm wondering if I should be a guinea pig and take a video of it in action for a discount. Maybe Dominic (who should be signing up here soon) will read this and help us out.

    I really like the look of it; that's why I'm tempted to try one.

    I like the idea of a roof spoiler. I just think the Irmscher one is too big.

    Andy should be able to clear up the question on the squirty, though I am sure the water would run off it onto the window .. Just give it some beans before squirting to make sure *lol*

    IMO I'd be tempted to ditch the water spray and and fit a shark fin along with the spoiler. Who uses the rear jet anway
