anyone got the rain sensor retrofit kit?

I installed it and was wondering if there's a trick to get the sensor a bit more "sensitive", meaning make the wipers go more often...

It's been quite a while since I installed mine, but I remember something about an adjustment on the new relay. The car's currently in storage, or I'd just go look. I'll try to remember to check the instructions that came with it tomorrow.

BTW, I installed my sensor at the top of the aerial in the front glass and screwed up my radio reception.

To clarify: I am asking about the RAIN sensor (a.k.a water which falls from the Heavens).
I have the newer model which does no longer have the adjustment screw

Yes, I gathered it was about the water falling from the sky as your original post said "rain sensor". Hard to confuse that.

I found the original box and instructions I got from Porsche. It's made by Xanonex. The Xanonex instructions don't mention adjustability, that I can see. Yet the Porsche instructions do - increasing or decreasing wiping cycles - whatever that means.

As my memory refreshes, I now seem to recall that my relay also didn't have any adjustment.
