    Default Variable speed rear wiper

    After having my Signum for 2 1/2 years, I've noticed another little trick it does.
    If you're using the wipers in "rain-sensing" mode, the rear wiper speed varies, too!
    If the fronts are wiping intermittently, the rear one wipes every 10 seconds or so.
    If the fronts are wiping at "normal" it goes up to every 3 seconds.
    If the fronts go to high speed, the rear wipes continually.

    I put it down to the fact that I've had to use the wipers more this year that I noticed!

    I noticed the speed of my rear changed when in sensing mode but never really thought anymore about it! (wasn't sure I hadn't imagined it)
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Yep, I spotted that a while ago - nice feature. Also have you spotted that if you have the wipers on and go into reverse it gives a flick of the rear wiper. Nice touch.

    Yes I have noticed that too. That can be useful, also while in reverse it will wipe at a fixed interval as long as your still in gear.

    I'd spotted the reversing trick, but not this one.
    I suppose there's a case for saying that I should be looking forwards in conditions where the wipers are at full speed, but I couldn't help noticing this little trick!

    it varies without rain sensors as well.

    If you have intermittant wipers on front, the rear wipes on every other front wipe, so change the intermittant interval on front, and you change the rear interval!
