I've got one. :D



It adds downforce to the wipers to prevent them from chattering or skipping over the windshield at highway speed. The front wipers are connected by a linkage and run from one motor, so you only need one wiper spoiler. (I don't know what it's officially called.) Stabilize one and you stabilize the other.

I bet it actually makes a substantial difference, at interstate speeds the wipers don't work that well, because they don't push down against the windshield very hard. Once you're in town, they work fine. So, having the wind push down on the wiper rather than lift it up would help out. At about 120mph, the wipers actually lift OFF the windshield and hover there. Err, so I've heard.

Not to mention you probably get a sweet Spoon Sport decal to slap on the ass end of the car.

Charge them for back payment, like unpaid taxes from the IRS. Cha-ching $$$
