Default Does anybody have Dave Barton's windshield wiper relay?

https://www.prancingmoose.com/volvor...html#3523610-T

any good? I have an 82' 244 and was wondering how much of an upgrade this would be, not currently content with stock wiper speed selection options

Have them in both my 240's and the program feature is great for the mist like rain here in Seattle. I was happy when he started offering them as the only other source was Skandix and $50 shipping for a relay is excessive.

I have on eon my 240, I think I got it from IPD backintheday. It's very nice, and intuitive. Turn it to interval, then back off, it will swipe once. Then when it's wet enough for you to want to swipe again, turn it back to interval and it will keep that interval.

I sort of want to get another one for the rear wiper.

I have installed VW adjustable wiper relay on my 240's. I love it, didn't know that Dave is offering direct drop in solution.

You need to dismantle 6-pin connector to use VW relay, but otherwise it is pretty straightforward job.
