Henk - I think you must be thinking of Jeemy ?

Jamie fae Fife and Jeemy fae Gullane are 2 different people. The common denominator is that both have Elan's and both have a J in their name :twisted:

No idea Jamie (not fae Fife) I think Jeemy might be from Embra so probably an Edinbugger

Perhaps we should refer to you individually as Jamie the seal (or Jamie the wiper) and Jeemy the Gull :twisted:

PS interesting read about the cars with the single wipers :? My drag coefficient and weight of car have gone down :wink:

I think you might confuse the Dutchman even more with your double Scotch, so for clarification, there's Jamie the Jock and Jeemy the Jock and they're both pronounced the same. HTH.

Just used my car for the first time since it was fitted - seems to bang on both sides of the windscreen ? Is my wiperblade too long ?

Interesting, your pictures show your wiper stopping a couple of inches from the top of the screen, the photot of the whitd elan shows it goinv all the way to the top of the screen ? Clearly different sizes.......
