Hi,

I'm the owner from a 16V from 1988.

Very nice - despite being black!

Why are your wipers in the middle of your windscreens? Am I missing a trick?

All the young lads put them like that, think its a bit like the rally cars, either that or the wiper motors broken!, either way rather odd :lol:

I'd find that annoying whilst driving, almost a retograde step to when ancient cars had divided windscreens. :wink:
