Windshield Washer Fluid

Noted I need to add washer fluid. Any recommendations or can I buy one from Autozone or Walmart?

I use the orange rain x kind. Works great and you don't even need the wipers going on the highway. The rain beads right off.

Just don't put it in your coolant reservoir. And then come back on the Forum and blame your girlfriend.

If your top is a light color make sure the windshield washer fluid won't stain it!

You don't have this issue in the middle of the Lone Star State, but up here in The Great White North we make sure we have fluid good to -40 C or F, at that temperature they are both the same.

Oh, come on, owning a Porsche is cooler than that.

This product is "German" and a concentrate so you aren't buying a bottle of water from a FLAPS. You get to mix your own == more personal involvement with your car.

A smaller plastic bottle, so "kinder to the environment."

You can think of yourself back in the 1960s when Porsches were for the intellectuals.

You should actually drain your washer fluid, and essentially pick up 1 HP butt dyno power boost.

I think scented Washer fluid would be nice so the top will smell like 4711 cologne after a few spritzes.

The old German submariners will love this.
