    I started with the OEM blue shit and that worked fine for awhile. When I ran out, I went to Autozone and found this pink shit that claimed "to work twice as fast"...so being a performance kinda guy, I bought the pink shit and filled my baby with it. The first time I hit the sprinkler thingy, my wipers went WHAPPITY-WHAP-WHAPPITTY-WHAP (You gotta read really, really, REALLY fast) :eek:. I immediately slung a wiper refill and was pissed. Well, after slinging two more wiper refills, I had enough. I still had a half reservoir full of pink shit, and being a thrifty kinda guy that don't like to waste shit, I went back to the Autozone and bought a jug of the blue shit. I mixed it with the pink shit, now I got green shit. I hit the sprinkler thingy and now the wipers go whappity......whap.....whappity......whap.....ahhhhh, much better :eek: So...what are you guys using.

    Sorry, just got bored with oil/tire/tire pressure/wax/octane threads. I did a search and didn't find shit about WW fluid! :rasta: No dead horse here!

    RainX treated and the blue stuff that I buy by the case because my wife uses so much of it. It's amazing how much she uses. I use less than a half gallon in the time she uses 3 gallons.

    Rain-X is the best shit. I never use my wipers except to use the blue stuff to clean off the bugs.

    This stuff is the BOMB! This is what I use in all my cars and trucks I've had.
    Half the time you dont even need to turn on the wipers at speeds over 35mph, the wind blows the water right off for you. :)

    Exactly what I use, but I also have Michelin radius wiper blades too. They make a high pitched noise for the first day or too, but they are the best wipers I've ever had.

    I my opinion Rain-X sucks on the windshield ... on the sides fine.

    EDIT: I didn't go deep enough into this thread .... I was thinking the wipe on/wipe off Rain-X. I didn't know that there was a fluid. :rain:

    Can never stop learning I guess. :sorry:

    Michelin vs. Bosch. What's the verdict for new blades that I need?

    I was laughing so hard throughout the first half of this thread about everybody's shit it was fun just to go through it. :D
