Has anybody who has replaced windsheild noticed an increase in the effectiveness of their windsheild wipers? I've tried cleaning the window with all kinds of things, running new bosch blades, all to no avail. My latest guess is the windsheild stone pits. Any ideas or experience with this?

Subject: [200q20v] glass replacement tip
Just a tip...this shop, unlike the last, taped two pieces of tape from the
top of the car to the glass. "Yhea, that's why the old glass was so
low. They didn't tape it, and it slid down before the adhesive
set. Leave the tape on for a day or so."
They mangled a cover chrome clip in the middle at the bottom; I pointed it
out, and asked them to fix it. They got a new clip and put it in, but it
looks kind of half-baked; not very flush/tight, so I'm a little annoyed
about that, but I'll live; the chrome at first look appeared much
better than the last replacement windshield. Total came to $300-ish for
generic glass, including labor, NY sales tax, etc.
