    the nozzles that shoot the water out are trash. I wish they made ones that distribute the water more evenly like our 2016 RR. The 4 super soaker streams just don't cut it.

    I've been using the Michelin's pretty successfully. I got them after getting some OEM-equivalent ones from Lucky8 on eBay that were junk. As others have said, they only last 12-18 month though.

    I used Bosch blades and rainx fluid. Never have any issues.

    I just ordered these for mine as I'm tired of the other aftermarket or OEM options. We're supposed to get some mixed crud here this weekend so I'll report back on how I feel about them after use.

    I have been using Valeo for last few years. They worked better for me then Bosch.

    I might try silicone blades next time.
    Never had problems with washer nozzles.Never had to touch them to adjust. Lucky me.

    The washer nozzles on the LR4 are designed for off road (washing off chunks of mud etc) and not providing a nice even mist to help remove air pollution/dust that has settled out at the country club in Boca Raton.

    This is hilarious. But it did make me think that it would be a nice feature if the nozzles had different modes that would kick in depending on TerrainResponse program chosen. For around town, a little diverter/atomizer would deploy for that country club cucumber water spritz you referenced. Off-road programs would enable the current ramjet mode.

    j/k, do I really want yet another thing that can break?

    They seem to be great but I have to say I haven't had to use them much since installing them. Been spending far too little time on the road.

    Probably not. FWIW my LR4 uses much less washer fluid than my LR3. I joke that they both consume more washer fluid than most cars use gasoline. I use lots as it is perpetually winter/spring cycles here for 9 months out of the year. Probably 4L every 1-2 weeks. Fortunately the temp has dropped to the point of less washer fluid. A balmy -28 this morning.
