my luxury turbo has them, which I got to try out yesterday when a very rare SoCal storm hit!

It seems like such a funny feature. Is it that hard to just turn the wipers on yourself? Luxury has turned into laziness in some cases IMO. I wouldn't complain about them but it wouldn't be a must have in any car that I buy.

Once you have them, you won't go back....

I got used to them with my old Mercedes...it was pretty neat and useful; granted, not a must-have, but useful nonetheless (surprisingly).

I got um on our NX, just never had a chance to use them yet. Been nice weather here in Hawaii.

NX200t, Atomic Silver, Black leather, Luxury package with, RSW, Power back door, heated & vented seats, power steering wheel, IPA, NAV, BSM, RCTA, Full triple beam LED Headlamps, PCS, Power rear seats, LDA and the useless wireless charger that my iPhone 6 plus doesn't fit in!

Are they accurate at sensing what speed they need to be wiping at? I can imagine that you have to manually control the speed despite them turning on automatically.

Looking forward to seeing reports on what it's like using this in the real world and how sensitive it is and if that will be a problem or not.

On my 2004 Mercedes, it worked quite well. Maybe when it is raining heavy, then i override it...but if i remember correctly, it was a good thing to have.
