Yep, that's what mine does, too. After half an hour's driving, it even
manages to dry an already wet rear screen. Great, especially since my dear
departed Kadett and Jetta had great problems in that respect. The Jetta
needed a rear wiper, the Kadett had one but needed two.
Just one of the nice touches that reminds me that I bought a
well-engineered car. Like a synchro'ed reverse gear- now I laugh at every
other 'luxury' car that doesn't have this feature.

Glad to see you're enjoying your Audi. Hope you'll be doing so for a long time!


PS High volume? On this list? Naah... after a day's reading, only stopped
for watching BTCC and eating dinner, I've already managed to reduce my
q-digest backlog from eight days to three. Glad it's a little more quiet
over the weekends...:-)

           Now I see that I should have been more specific.
